"I'm Alive" We are back again, this time with a cover of a song by the band Disturbed. The original has some heavy distorted guitar on it, and it was a bit of a challenge to work this out to an acoustic cover. We liked the result and hope you do too. Thanks for listening.

"Under Her Spell" Another spider capo song, this time using a tuning giving me the notes E A C G A E, an A minor 7 chord. Found this arpeggio melody in there, lots of different forms of an A minor chord to be found this way up and down the fretboard, and a few variations of a C Major chord too, among others. Thanks for listening, and I'll dedicate this to all the females out there who have us guys under their spell.

"Tongue Wagger" Time for another harmonica song. Using a Lee Oskar A Natural Minor harmonica on this one. The song gets it's name because I am actually "wagging" my tongue around while playing parts of this, kind of saying diddle diddle dit dit, dah dah dah, dah dah into the harmonica. Talking into the harmonica while playing can give some interesting sounds. Hope you like this and thanks for listening.

Have a back log of around 30 songs I have not posted, guitar, uke, and harmonica, better get some of them out there. This is me finding another uke tune using an alternate tuning, F C E G, instead of the standard G C E A. Thanks for listening.

Tried to use a lot of single notes with a few 2 note chords thrown in there, and I like having a percussion backing track, makes keeping time a bit easier. Thanks for listening.

Zapple Pie - Silent Raindrops Hi everyone, we are back with yet another song for you. This one was an idea I had, I was in my music room one rainy day fooling around with some chords and wrote this music. It was raining outside and I noticed that I could not hear any raindrops hitting the window or roof, so that is how the song got it's name. I proposed this to my partners and Glenn wrote and sang the lyrics, Yvalain added some strings and glockenspeil and the video and effects, and we had another song. As always, we thank you for listening.

"Deanna" This song was written for a good friend of mine who recently lost her mother to cancer. She was feeling very down so this was my attempt to make her feel a bit better. It was also an attempt to prove to myself that I could write a song in standard tuning without a capo of any kind. Not a complicated song, and I use a favorite technique here, chord variations going up and down the fretboard, another thing I like to do other than staying with a standard chord type. As always, thanks for listening.

"Looking for something New" Ukelele time once again. All of you who know me also know I'm a big fan of alternate tunings. I am doing that here with the uke on this song, using a capo and different tunings to two of the strings to get a G D F# G tuning, and I found this little song hiding in there. Thanks to all who listen.

"Anagantios" This is a cover song from the band Eluveitie. The name of the song comes from the Celtic Lunar Calendar, and refers to the months of January and February, and means "stay at home time". Kristen plays the violin here. She used to take lessons some years ago, but quit playing for a long stretch. She took it up again about two months ago and we decided to do this song and post it here. We hope you like our first try and doing a guitar/violin song, and we thank you for listening.

Really makes you think about your own mortality, and how much longer you yourself has. Anyway, thanks for listening and hope you enjoy the song.

"Blues Thursday" Here is my entry for Blues Thursday, my attempt at a Blues Harmonica song. I tried to use some of the techniques I am learning, such as single note lip blocking, different hand positions to get a different sound, using a rhythm and then playing riffs around it, actually using syllables into the harmonica to get different sounds too. Kind of like saying ta ta too too into the harmonica on that little rhythm hook I do here. Anyway, thanks for listening.

"The Fussell Hustle" I was looking at my youtube channel the other day and realized I have 38 songs I have not posted, along with about four collabs out there too waiting to be shown, so I figured I better start putting some more up here. Starting with this song, that was inspired after a visit from our fando friend Mark Fussell. Mark has been using a spider capo on some of his music too, and when he was here showed me some of his original music using the capo. I used that tuning he was using and came up with this song and am dedicating it to Mark. Thanks everyone for listening.

"Taikatalvi" This time a song from the band Nightwish, this is the first track from their album Imaginaerum. The title of the song means "magic winter". Kristen challenged me on this one, as there are eleven different chords in the song, and also, since I was capoed at the fifth fret, some of the bar chords up the neck were a bit tricky since the frets narrow as you go up the neck. Thanks for listening to our latest.

Could it be? Mark Taylor & Kathy Shortt One day I was fooling around with a little chord progression, and decided it sounded good so I made it into a song structure. I then thought, I bet Kathy could put words to this, so I sent it to her and bing bang she came up with the words almost right away. So here is that song, I do all the music and drums, Kathy wrote the melody and lyrics and does all vocals. Thanks for listening.

So obviously the song is in the key of A major. Found this little song hiding in there. And as for the title, I had none for it, so I decided to name it the first dumb thing that popped into my head, and Sugar Puddin' was it. I have no idea why. Ha Ha!! Thanks for listening.

"Magical Dream" Once again using a spider capo, this time with an open G minor tuning. With 2016 winding down, I wanted to make a dedication. This has been a kind of strange year, having some health problems and all of the big name celebrity deaths has made this year one I'd like to get over with. One constant though that has kept me going and made parts of this year a great one, is my two Zapple Pie friends Yvalain and Glenn. Making music with them has been such a great time for me, and I want to dedicate this song to those guys. It has definitely been a "Magical Dream" for me to be able to add my touch to the music they provide me, and I'm forever grateful to them both for entrusting me to do so. Sp here's to you Yvalain and Glenn, and let's hope that for all of us here at Fando that 2017 will be a Magical Dream for all of us. Thanks for listening.

Glenn wrote and sang the lyrics to it, and Yvalain provided a second guitar and the other effects, and made the video for it. Hope you enjoy the latest from Zapple Pie!!

"Ukelele Exorcist" by Mark Taylor with Mel Donovan Awhile back I had posted one of my ukekele songs called Ukelele exorcism. I thought it sounded a bit like the Exorcist theme. My fando friend Mel Donovan liked the song, so he took it and added some guitar and effects to it and made the video for it, now it sounds very ominous, a whole new sound to it. Thanks Mel, took my song to a new level!

Hide your love away! with Mark Taylor and Kristen Taylor Kathy Shortt and I decided it was time to do another song together. She suggested a Beatle cover, so I thought of doing this one since I knew it well and could record it quick. My daughter Kristen and I used to play this one together a lot, so she joins us on this by providing the flute solo at the end of the song. My thanks to Kathy for once again providing such great vocals. Thanks for listening!!

"Give me a Reason" Time for another ukelele song. I recorded this some time ago, one of the ones I did with my smaller uke. Have a few more of these in my backlog of songs to post. This little song is based around a C7 chord. Used the F C E G tuning on the uke here. Always thought that certain chords had a distinct sound, major chord being happy, minor chord being sad, and seventh chords to me sound kind of like the chord is asking a question, hence the name of the song. Hope you all like this little ditty!!

"The Pearl Fishermen" -All About Eve- By Michela Vazzana Feat. Mark Taylor Here is another collab I was asked to do with Michela. This song was a particular challenge for me for a few reasons. One, I was not familiar with it at all, two, the guitarist had his guitar tuned different than standard tuning, and three, l had to basically learn this by ear and it was difficult to pick out some of the chords over the vocals. But being persistent paid off and this turned out just gorgeous with Michela singing over it. I thank her for introducing me to another great song, and we hope you all will enjoy it

"Something Simple" Another spider capo song, this time getting an open Amaj7add9 by capoing at the sixth fret to get the notes E A G# C# B E. Not one of my fancier songs, but liked the little melody I found using this tuning. Have a backlog of solo guitar, ukelele songs, and a few collabs that I will be posting in the days to come while I am recovering from my latest round of surgery. So far so good. Cheers everyone!!

"Thanks for the Help" Time for another ukelele song. This one came about after seeing a few ukelele videos showing the two chords Fmaj7 and G6. I liked the sound of them and decided to use them both in a song, and this was the result, using a favorite technique, backward arpeggios!!

"Turmoil" Another spider capo song. I like the fact that you can play on either side of the capo depending on where you position it on the guitar neck, and this one lends itself very well to that. Hope you all enjoy it!!

A new cover from Jay Lemay and Mark Taylor My friend Jerome Lemay asked me recently to do another cover of a Sting song, and this is the result. A song I was not familiar with, this is one of the reasons I like Fando, being introduced to new music, and the challenge of learning the songs!! Thanks to Jay for his great vocals and the production on this, as well as a great video of us!!

"I'm Elated" Here is another ukelele original. Kind of a funny story behind this one. I had ordered a capo for my daughter Kristen to use on her bouzouki, but I ended up ordering one that was way to small, no way she could use it. Then I got the idea to try it on my uke, but it only covered the first three strings. I then realized that it gave me an open D major tuning on the uke when I used the capo in that way, and this song is the result of that. Song would not exist if I had not ordered the wrong capo! Anyway, this one is dedicated to our Fando friend Jenni Chong who recently got a new ukelele and is trying to learn how to play it. Here's to you Jenni!!
