I have posted another A-Z installment on the Err Bear Music page. Remember that we have hundreds of full-length MP3’s for your listening pleasure there. If you use Windows Media Player as your default MP3 player, the MP3’s will stream when you click on the MP3 link.
I’ve started a new thing on the Err Bear Music page. Each week or so I’ll pick one song, working though the alphabet from A to Z, and write about it a little bit. When someone plays me a new song, I am often curious about how the song came to be, what inspired it, is to autobiographical, etc. So we’ll take a spin through the alphabet and see what turns up.
As an aside, it amazes me how often I forget what inspired me to write a song. I’ve talked to other writers (including a few who wrote songs you hear on the radio) and it seems like I’m not the only person who has that problem. Worse case basis, I’ll have a resource to look to when I forget more.
The other song I just finished the music for is one for, about and named Delaney.
I finished the words about a year ago and it took me this long to get the music right.
I just finished up a couple of new songs. The first one is called Blues for Maggie.
It started out as a song about a friend of mine’s dog, and ended up being about all sorts of things.
The Err Bear Music page has been updated. Take a look at our new, hopefully better, format. We added some new MP3’s and even a new song or two. Our goal is to have complete MP3’s for 80% of the catalog available by the end of the year. Many of the current MP3’s are only partial songs. We’re updating them regularly so stay tuned.
Update: Err Bear Music is now at ErrBear.Com. All demos are full length, fully arranged and available for streaming.
Here’s a sample.
