My post-RPM Challenge plan is to just keep going. Here's my first March 2020 Challenge song. I am trying to go much more raw and low-fi than usual. One guitar straight into one amp. No doubling, not extensive overdubs. Same with the vocals…read more

The miracle here is that I was able to upload this using the guest wifi at Disney World and it didn't take six days! Nice! The lyrics are about how I used to be a cynical asshole when it came to love and relationships and then I met my wife…read more

Prior to the switch to the white UI I was having an issue where all of my uploads were marked as private and I couldn’t change them. I created a second account and moved on.
