"Silent Raindrops" Here is another one of my original acoustic songs that would become a Zapple Pie song. This one came about one day while I was in my music room on a rainy day. I could see the raindrops outside the window, but could not hear them, and the melody just kind of came to me. Not hearing the rain out there prompted the name of the song. As always, thanks for listening.

"For Michela" Here is song I have not shared here until now. This is a song that started out as a dedication to my good friend Michela Vazzana. I got stuck for a middle section for it though, and it kind of sat for a bit. I decided to submit it to my two Zapple Pie buddies to see if it could become a ZP song, and they agreed and it did become one of our songs. Before it did though, I did come up with a middle section, so I went ahead with my dedication to Michela, so this song has two versions, the one here, and a ZP song called Spirits Guitar, that you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0Vs6lEsE8M Thanks for listening.

Breaking Benjamin is an American rock band from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, formed in 1999 by lead singer and guitarist Benjamin Burnley and drummer Jeremy Hummel. This song is from their most recent album called Ember. As always, we thank you for listening. Lyrics: It must have been inside my head I've lost the hope that I have lived And now, at last, it comes to pass We sleep, we dream, we have no less Along the path we lost our way It's all a game that I must play And now the weak that fall return to ash, defeated after all Fade away to the wicked world we left And I become the dark of you Say a prayer for the wounded heart within as I become the dark of you Let go, we know this kind of life We live, we breathe, we die They call me to the light, forever lost inside With every dream we find We feed, we burn, we lie The fall of humankind The everlasting light Fade away to the wicked world we left And I become the dark of you Say a prayer for the wounded heart within as I become the dark of you Let go, we know this kind of life We live, we breathe, we die They call me to the light, forever lost inside With every dream we find We feed, we burn, we lie The fall of humankind The everlasting light Fade away to the wicked world we left And I become the dark of you Say a prayer for the wounded heart within as I become the dark of you save this selfish world (Let go) save this selfish world (Let go) save this selfish world (Let go) save this selfish world

"Sahara" Here is the latest from me and Kristen. This is another Nightwish cover, a song from their album Dark Passion Play. This song came about from a dream that the band member Tuomas Holapainen had one night about a guy fleeing across the desert. This is a real showboat for Kristen as she figured out all the parts she plays here by ear. Quite a few tracks went into this one, and as always, we thank you for listening. Lyrics: A ballad of dark queen echoes through night As he flees the curse of gods, the pharaoh`s wrath 1001 nights unseen The philosopher and the queen Ancient mariner in a sea of sand The burning beauty his tomb to die for 1001 nights unseen The philosopher and the queen Horizon`s swarming with death Run! Heaven has a darkened face Dunes are soaring, as on a chase Caravan of the cursed Chasing him across the waves May he now rest under aegis of mirage As the sands slowly turn to Elysian fields 1001 nights unseen The philosopher and the queen 1001 nights unseen The philosopher and the queen

"Winged Hussars" Mark and Kristen perform a cover song from the band Sabaton. Winged Hussars is from their album The Last Stand. The Polish Hussars or Winged Hussars, were one of the main types of the cavalry in Poland ..... Swedish power metal band Sabaton wrote a song in honor of the Polish Hussars entitled "Winged Hussars" about the role of the Hussars in the battle of Vienna in 1683. Lyrics: A cry for help in time of need, await relief from holy league 60 days of siege, outnumbered and weak Sent a message to the sky, wounded soldiers left to die Will they hold the wall or will the city fall Dedication Dedication They're outnumbered 15 to one And the battle's begun Then the winged hussars arrived Coming down the mountainside Then the winged hussars arrived Coming down they turned the tide As the days are passing by and as the dead are piling high No escape and no salvation Trenches to explosive halls are buried deep beneath the walls Plant the charges there and watch the city fear Desperation Desperation It's a desperate race against the mine And a race against time Then the winged hussars arrived Coming down the mountainside Then the winged hussars arrived Coming down they turned the tide Cannonballs are coming down from the sky Janissaries are you ready to die? We will seek our vengeance eye for an eye You'll be stopped upon the steps of our gate On this field you're only facing our hate But back home the sultan's sealing your fate We remember In September That's the night Vienna was freed We made the enemy bleed! Storm clouds, fire and steel Death from above make their enemy kneel

"Lucifer's Lament" Glad to post this one, this is the first original song from me and Kristen. Kristen played me a piano track she had written, and I knew it had potential so I sat down and put some guitar riffs over it and a phasing effect in the background, and this song was born. Funny note on this one, Kristen said she was a bit tipsy after a few drinks, and sat down at the piano and knocked this out. We hope you like this one, and thank you for listening.

Lyrics-- To lead a better life I need my love to be here Here, making each day of the year Changing my life with a wave of her hand Nobody can deny that there's something there There, running my hands through her hair Both of us thinking how good it can be Someone is speaking, but she doesn't know he's there I want her everywhere And if she's beside me I know I need never care But to love her is to need her everywhere Knowing that love is to share Each one believing that love never dies Watching their eyes and hoping I'm always there I want her everywhere And if she's beside me I know I need never care But to love her is to need her everywhere Knowing that love is to share Each one believing that love never dies Watching their eyes and hoping I'm always there I will be there And everywhere Here, there and everywhere We thank you for listening.

"Red Sun" a cover song from Lindsey Buckingham and Christine Mcvie. Lindsey Buckingham Christine McVie (also referred to as simply Buckingham McVie) is a studio album by Fleetwood Mac vocalists Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie, released on June 9, 2017.[1][4] Four of the five "classic members" of Fleetwood Mac are featured on the album; vocalist Stevie Nicks is the sole member absent. [5] The album sold over 22,000 units in the United States in its first week and debuted within the top 20.

Red Sun is the fourth track on this album. Lyrics: I wonder where you are As I fold upon my bed And I think about the way we were So much left unsaid I wonder what you're doing As I walk along the shore You took your love away from me When I only wanted more Sometimes I wonder Do you ever think of me? And it's worse for me at night, you know When the red sun kisses the sea Slowly breaks the dawn to day Heralded by the sun My favorite time of day Or so I thought when we began My mind is filled with journeys Echoed with your smile No, you won't take that away from me Even if you try Sometimes I wonder Do you ever think of me? And it's worse for me at night, you know When the red sun kisses the sea Oh, sometimes I wonder Do you ever think of me? And it's worse for me at night, you know When the red sun kisses the sea Sometimes I wonder Do you ever think about me? And it's worse for me at night, you know When the red sun kisses the seaWhen the red sun kisses the sea La la la la la la la la ooh La la la la la la la la ooh La la la la la la la la ooh La la la la la la la la ooh La la la la la la la la ooh La la la la la la la la ooh La la la la la la la la ooh

"Taikatalvi and Storytime" Me and Kristen are back with more music from Nightwish. This is one of our most ambitious projects yet, two songs here back to back. These two songs open up their album Imaginaerum, and they sound really good one right after the other. Taikatalvi means Enchanted Winter, and the lyrics to the song are in Finnish on the record. The Finnish and English lyrics are as follows, as well as the lyrics for Storytime. Imaginaerum (also promoted as Imaginaerum by Nightwish) is a 2012 Finnish-Canadian fantasy film co-written and directed by Stobe Harju. It was developed with and features music from Finnish symphonic metal band Nightwish's seventh studio album of the same name; Nightwish's keyboardist and songwriter Tuomas Holopainen co-wrote the film. Imaginaerum, which is produced by Markus Selin from Solar Films Inc. along with Nightwish, is the feature film debut of Stobe Harju. Taikatalvi lyrics: Lapsistain rakkain tää näyttämö on Mis kuutamo kujillaan kulkee Taipunut havu, kesä hoivassa sen Valkomeren niin aavan Joka aavekuun siivin Saapuu mut kotiin noutamaan Päällä talvisen maan hetki kuin ikuisuus Mi pienen kissan jaloin luokseni hiipii Tääl tarinain lähteellä asua saan mis Viulu valtavan kaihon Ikisäveltään maalaa Laulullaan herättää maan In English: This stage is the dearest of my children Where moonlight moves through alleys A bent twig, a summer in its care White vast open sea On the wings of a phantom moon Comes to take me home In winterland a moment is an eternity Creeps to me on kitten paws I get to live here where the story begins Where a violin echoes the eternal melody of immense longing Waking up the earth with its song Storytime lyrics: It was the night before, When all through the world No words, no dreams Then one day A writer by a fire Imagined all of Gaia Took a journey into a child-man's heart A painter on the shore Imagined all the world Within a snowflake on his palm Unframed by poetry A canvas of awe Planet Earth falling back into the stars I am the voice of never, never land The innocence, the dreams of every man I am the empty crib of Peter Pan, A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky Every chimney, every moonlit sight I am the story that will read you real Every memory that you hold dear I am the journey, I am the destination I am the home The tale that reads you A way to taste the night The elusive high Follow the madness Alice, you know once did Imaginarium, a dream emporium Caress the tales and They will dream you real A storyteller's game, Lips that intoxicate The core of all life is a limitless chest of tales I am the voice of never, never land The innocence, the dreams of every man I am the empty crib of Peter Pan A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky Every chimney, every moonlit sight I am the story that will read you real Every memory that you hold dear I am the voice of never, never land The innocence, the dreams of every man Searching heavens for another earth Innocence, innocence, dreams of every man, ah-ah Every man innocent, every man, Peter Pan Innocence, innocence, dreams of every man Every man innocent, every man, Peter Pan I am the voice of never, never land The innocence, the dreams of every man I am the empty crib of Peter Pan, A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky Every chimney, every moonlit sight I am the story that will read you real Every memory that you hold dear I am the voice of never, never land The innocence, the dreams of every man I am the empty crib of Peter Pan, A soaring kite against the blue, blue sky Every chimney, every moonlit sight I am the story that will read you real Every memory that you hold dear.

Auri is a Finnish band composed of vocalist and violinist Johanna Kurkela, keyboardist and backing vocalist Tuomas Holopainen, and guitarist, keyboardist and pipe player Troy Donockley. Holopainen and Donockley are also members of Finnish band Nightwish. This song is the first time I have used an e-bow on my guitar to do part of the solo. Here are the song lyrics, and once again, we thank you for listening. https://lyricstranslate.com/en/auri-space-between-lyrics.html In your scripted play On the stage you call home There's no seat set for an unknown guest Why the mean mouth The many mirrors Those songs to end all hearing Come with me The vast unknown awaits for us to see Something so deeply hidden Yet open before our eyes Catch the world in writing Draft a note or three Listen to a farmer sing to a field Time for a starwalk Time to yearn Some twists 'n' turns Come with me The vast unknown awaits for us to see Something so deeply hidden Yet everscriven, so Come with me I'll take you to the rings, I'll take you where The sons and daughters of endlessness came to be Come, sit with me here for a while Amidst the dancing skies They will tell what lies ahead: Strange comforts, curious canvases Front seat to history A seat for the guest unknown Come with me The vast unknown awaits for us to see Something so deeply hidden Yet everscriven, so Come with me I'll take you to the rings, I'll take you where The sons and daughters of endlessness came to be

"Long Live the King" Another cover song by me and Kristen, this time from a band called Sabaton. Sabaton is a Swedish power metal band from Falun. The band's main lyrical themes are based on war, historical battles, and acts of heroism—the name is a reference to a sabaton, knight's foot armor. Long Live The King is a song about the death of Charles XII of Sweden, also referred to as Carolus Rex. ... Charles was a beloved king and fought to ensure the existence of the Swedish Empire. As always, we thank you for listening and your continued loyalty and support. Here are the lyrics to the song--Dreams are seldom shattered, by a bullet in the dark Rulers come and rulers go, will our kingdom fall apart? Who shall we now turn to, when our leaders lost their heart? Lives are lost but at what cost, will the grand dream fall apart? Killed by his own or by his foes, turned the tide Three hundreds years still no one knows, the secret remains Broken dreams so grand, sing of his final stand, long live Carolus Brought by soldiers hand, back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex Brought him back to Sweden, where we put him in a chest Years of war and agony, now the king can finally rest What will be uncovered, from that cold November night Fredrikshald, what happened there, will it ever come to light? Killed by his own or by his foes, turned the tide Three hundreds years still no one knows, the secret remains Broken dreams so grand, sing of his final stand, long live Carolus Brought by soldiers hand, back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex For their honor, for their glory For the men who fought and bled A soldier from Sweden remembers the dead Broken dreams so grand, sing of his final stand, long live Carolus Brought by soldiers hand, back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Broken dreams so grand, sing of his final stand, long live Carolus Brought by soldiers hand, back to the fatherland, long live Carolus Rex

Don't stop this feeling with Mark Taylor This is a re-post of a song I did quite some time back with my friend Kathy Shortt. I think it's a good song to post on the first day of Spring. Happy first day of Spring everyone.

"The Crow, The Owl, and The Dove" Here we are again with another Nightwish cover. This one was a challenge for me as it required using a pick to do the main guitar part, and involved some string skipping which I am not very good at, and also a couple of difficult stretches too. Lots of practice paid off and got it good enough to record. Kristen challenged me with this one, and needless to say, she sounds great on this. We thank you all once again for listening.

"I'm Still Able" This was written some time ago, one of the songs I had not posted. Trying to find all the ones I still have out there before I forget about them. This one came about after I had done a lot with my spider capo. I had to prove to myself I could still write one in standard tuning, although I did capo at the fourth fret as it sounded better that way. So I was still able to write one without the spider capo. Thanks for listening.

"Rowena's Revenge" This song was inspired by the TV show Supernatural. My wife and I have been binge watching the show, and after so many episodes this song idea came to me. Rowena is a witch on the show and a favorite character. This is also my first video made with actual video clips instead of just pics. And a shout out to Melani Cholie for telling me a good place to get the clips from. I play the guitars and bass here, and the drums are programmed from a DR-770 drum machine. And as always, thanks for listening.

Our other friend, Janice Zamb, wrote some lyrics for the song, and then Melani sang them over my track. It's always really nice when others like your music so much that they want to add to it, and this is the result here. My big thanks to Janice and Melani for doing this. Thanks for listening.

"Rock Candy" Here is a cover of a Ronnie Montrose song. I always felt that Ronnie never got the accolades that he deserved. A brilliant guitar player, always been a big fan of his. Any serious rocker, or guitarist for that matter knows who he is. So I decided to try and do this one, and got help from my friend Tyler Selph to do the vocals. Not an easy song to sing, but he came through very well. Not an easy one to play either, impossible for me to get all of the subtleties that Ronnie does in the song, had to fake a few of the bends he does by using slides, the bends are a bit beyond me. But all in all, a fun song to do, and Tyler and I hope you like what we have done here. Thanks for listening.

"MelaDani" This one is inspired by and dedicated to two fando friends, Melani Cholie and Danijela Jovic. They had posted a song together last week, and had also met each other, and we interacted with each other on the fando site a bit. Soon after I picked up my guitar, tried this new tuning and came up with this song. It came very quickly, and I attribute my interaction with these two ladies as the reason, so there you have it. Thanks for listening.

""Maddy" This one was recorded three years ago, I'm still finding old songs that I have never posted, need to do them all eventually. I'm using my older uke in this one, the first one I ever got, and this song is dedicated to another female friend of mine, Maddy. A simple tune, definitely not one of my better ones, but it gets the message across. I'm also using an F C E G tuning on this one as opposed the the regular uke tuning of G C E A. Thanks for listening.

"Hidden Melody" Been awhile since I posted a harmonica song. This is one I did using a Lee Oskar Melody Maker in the key of C. The thing about a Melody Maker Harmonica as opposed to the regular Diatonic Harmonica, is that you can play lots of single note melodies on it where you would have to be able to do a lot of bending on a regular diatonic to be able to play all the notes. I ordered this Melody Maker out of curiosity, and instead of trying a song with single notes, I played chords on it and found this "Hidden Melody" in there. And I always feel these harmonica songs of mine sound a bit better with a little percussion behind them. Thanks to whoever listens and likes this.

"Abnormal"Another song inspired by an on line lesson from my son John Taylor. This time using another weird and interesting scale, the half/whole diminished scale. As opposed to a major scale that has the degrees whole step whole step half step whole step whole step whole step half step, this scale goes half step whole step all the way through. So in the key of A which is what I'm in here, you get the notes A Bb C Db Eb E Gb A. Thanks for listening to my Abnormal song!!
