"Acoustic Amity" Here is another song that started out as a solo spider capo tune. I once again decided to layer more guitar onto it, and also a drum track this time. Added bass notes using my acoustic also for the first time. It is a happy sounding song, and reminds me of how music can bring people together, as the pics in my video will show. As always, I thank you all for listening.

"Fairy Tales" Here is another from Ryders on the Storm. My friend Kevin Kapuscinski once again gave me one of his songs to add to, and this is the result. His song is about religion, about a certain belief, but not to question what God or Jesus is. We hope that this song will find an audience that can relate to the lyrics. I like the lyrics because I think it really exposes the hypocrisy of religion. We thank you for listening.

"The Gist" Here is a cover song from the band Chevelle. Chevelle is an American rock band formed in Grayslake, Illinois, in 1995. The band was originally composed of two brothers Pete Loeffler (lead vocals and guitar) and Sam Loeffler (drums and percussion), along with Matt Scott (bass and backing vocals). Scott was replaced by Sam and Pete's brother, Joe Loeffler in 1996. When Joe left the band in 2005, Geno Lenardo subbed-in as the touring bassist until he was replaced by Pete and Sam's brother-in-law, Dean Bernardini. Bernardini later departed from the band in 2019. In 2021, Kemble Walters joined the band as a touring bassist. This is a band that my daughter Kristen turned me on to. Saw them live in concert a few years back and was floored by the guitar player's talent on stage. To be able to sing, play, and operate what looked to be a complicated floor pedal setup blew me away. This guy Pete Loeffler does some cool and fun to play guitar riffs, and this song here is a short one, but fun to play so I decided to do my own cover of it. It's an instrumental, and is off of their album 12 Bloody Spies, that features B sides and rarities. Hope someone likes this one, it is fun to just make some heavy guitar noise at times.

My friend Kevin Kapuscinski from our group The Moon Shadows asked me to do a side project with him on a song dealing with the sensitive subject of suicide. I agreed and this is the result. Kevin wrote and sang all the lyrics and added some keyboard and a drum track. I added some guitar and bass. We decided to call our two man band Ryders on the Storm, a nod to The Doors. We hope you like our collaboration here.

"Musical Aftermath" This was another solo acoustic guitar song at the start, then I decided to layer some more guitar onto it. Still thought it was missing something, and it hit me that I had not played my Ukelele in long time, so I got it out and put some Ukelele in the background. This is the result. This is in the key of E Minor, so there are a lot of open strings going on. This song sounds best in my opinion through headphones, so use them if you have them. The title kind of came from the mood of the song, reminded me a bit of the aftermath of a moody situation. Had no ideas for the video so I just added some pics of acoustic guitars, music notation, and some Ukeleles. As always, I thank you for listening.

"Smiles Among the Ruins" This song started out as a solo Spider Capo song. I then kind of got the idea to see if I could add more guitar to it. The mood of the song I also thought sort of matched the state of the world we have been living in for the past few years, kind of like living among the ruins. The song also has some bits of happy sounding chords, and it made me think of smiling. So I also got the idea to have some of my friends who have made me smile through their friendship and musical collaborations be in the video I made. They are all The Smiles Among the Ruins. Thanks to all of them. Also, I did something in this one I've never done before, a few times in the song I have two melodies playing together, kind of off of each other. I hope this song finds an audience with my followers and friends. As always, I thank you for listening.

"Find My Way" Paul McCartney's "Find My Way", a cover by Zapple Pie (Glenn Basham, Mark Taylor and Yvalain). Zapple Pie does not usually record covers but the 3 of us happened to be so happy with Sir Paul's latest album "McCartney III" that we decided to go for this song. The video, made in "rockdown", is a tribute to Paul's own music video for that song. No special effects, just us happy to play the song. Thanks for your support

"The Kiss of Venus" Mark and Glenn Basham decided to do their rendition of another new song from Paul McCartney's new "McCartney III' album. They decided to do their rendition of Paul McCartney's song called "The Kiss of Venus". They asked Kristen if she would like to join them and play the harpsichord part and she agreed. Glenn decided not to sing the song in falsetto, but instead, the key of the song was changed to A major instead of being in E major. He also tried to imagine how it might have been done vocally if The Beatles had sung it, so he decided to add vocal harmonies to this rendition. A very enjoyable collaboration!

"Noise" Mark and Kristen cover Nightwish again, this one from their latest album “Human. :II: Nature.”. The “noise” which Nightwish talks about in this song is a metaphor for constantly being plugged into the “matrix”. Or a simpler way of putting it is that this song is based on the concept of the modern human dependency on electronic media being a bad thing. And there is a special emphasis on social media, as the band portrays vesting in online personas as being a vain pursuit. So basically what we have here is a song in which the listener is under a constant flux of symbolisms pointing to the aforementioned ideas. And what is all boils down to is the notion that our reliance on computers, televisions and handheld devices has made us lose touch with mother nature. Indeed if we were to turn these appliances off for a decent amount of time we would come to realize “the Earth has a real voice”, as in it creates its own background noise which can get us through the day. As always, we thank you for listening.

"Positive Thinking" This is a song from the group Acoustic Alchemy, It has always been a favorite of mine, the kind of song that always evokes emotions. Acoustic Alchemy is an English smooth jazz band formed in England in the early 1980s by Nick Webb and Simon James. Simon left after two unprofitable albums and was replaced by Greg Carmichael. This is when I thought the band was at it's best, with these two as the main guys. This song here is off of their album of the same name. Sadly, this was the last album that NIck Webb would participate in as he was suffering from pancreatic cancer which eventually took his life in 1998. So this song is especially emotional for me knowing that it was one of Nick's last creations with the group. I asked my friend Mark Fussell to join me in doing this cover and he thankfully agreed. He plays the lead on this plus a cello effect while I play the backing guitar. We both thank you very much for listening.

"Don't Fear The Reaper" Recently I was asked to join in on a collaboration of this classic song by a good friend from facebook and fandalism, Doc Italy. I jumped at it because I was really into this band, Blue Oyster Cult back in the day, and this song was played a lot around my home. Doc let me do all the guitar parts, he and his friend Alfonso Cecchi did the vocals and choirs, and Doc did all the other instruments. The solo on this gave me fits to get down correctly, the timing is so weird in it, but I think I did okay. Thanks for listening to our effort here, and now let the cowbell jokes begin!!

"Forgotten Memory" Another original acoustic piece with my spider capo and Tonewood Amp. I believe this one came about because sometimes all of a sudden random memories that I have not thought about for years, such as a person or being in a certain place, pop into my head without warning. I sometimes find that disturbing, thinking, "why did I all of a sudden think of that?" I think this song kind of has that mood to it, memories long forgotten but still there. Thanks for listening.

I've been defriended by one individual like that just because I did not comment on every little thing he posted. Too many confrontational things that turned me off. Seems he was not happy unless people were constantly kissing up to him. Things like that are why I don't go on line much, and to those individuals that are guilty of this, I say only one thing: Be Nice. The name of the song is also because the key of this one is in B major. The spider capo tuning is B6. Thanks for listening.

MASK OF EMOTIONS (Extended Band Version) This is a re-post of a song that HG Schmitz and I did together. I have just heard that HG has passed away, so I wanted to post this again as a tribute to him, he was one of the first and most loyal of my supporters here on fandalism, and he took this acoustic song of mine and added his touch to it, and this was the result. Rest in Peace HG, you will truly be missed.

"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.

"A New Idea" Here is a new acoustic instrumental. Got this idea from a book talking about alternate tunings from my son John. Had no new ideas for quite awhile until I looked through the book and tried a tuning, but using my spider capos. 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.

"Swanheart" Mark and Kristen are back with another Nightwish cover, this one from their album Oceanborn. As always, we thank you for listening. Lyrics: All those beautiful people I want to have them all All those porcelain models If only I could make them fall Be my heart a well of love Flowing free so far above A wintry eve Once upon a tale An Ugly Duckling Lost in a verse Of a sparrows carol Dreaming the stars Be my heart a well of love Flowing free so far above In my world Love is for poets Never the famous balcony scene Just a dying faith On the heaven's gate Crystal pond awaits the lorn Tonight another morn for the lonely one is born

"The Dark of You" Mark and Kristen cover a song from Breaking Benjamin. 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

Lyrics-- n the biblical sense and sensibility Let me know you I'll kiss that smile off your face Just say when I'm not afraid to say I love you Any more than I used to be, babe I am scared to death I am scared to death to fall in love All these pickup lines from hell Icebreakers infernal From a heart so black and blue Only for you Just say when again I'm not afraid to say I love you Any more than I used to be, babe I am scared to death I am scared to death to fall in love with you I'm not afraid to admit I adore you Any more than I was before, babe I am scared to death I am scared to death to fall in love With you

"Forever" Kristen and I are back with another Breaking Benjamin cover. As always, we thank you for listening. Lyrics-- Do you know I can never leave you And no, I can never beat you And I find that I can never find you Never mind I will not forget you Can I stay alive forever? Can I stay alive forever? Can I stay alive forever? Forever? Can you feel a chemical reaction Cause I feel a hideous attraction Could we share a poisoned apple? Can it be manacle and awful? Can I stay alive forever? Can I stay alive forever? Can I stay alive forever? Forever? Forever? Stay alive forever? Forever? Stay alive forever? Stay alive forever? Stay alive forever? Stay alive forever? Stay alive forever?
