Ten of Diamonds: First Snow

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

The Ten of Diamonds was made last week, just before the first snow of the year here in Brooklyn. But the mood is right and since I mixed it tonight, I'll call it First Snow.

The first snow, as any of you on the Eastern Seaboard already know, was a big one. It's the most snow I've seen in the city in quite a long time.

This is another of the instrumental acoustic guitar pieces. Enjoy!

Four of Diamonds: Bosch Loopers (Runners of Woods)

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

It's been a tough late-summer. I've been out of commission for most of August and September. But! I fully intend to come back from the dark territory and regain control of this beast called The Deck.

The latest installment was made on September 29. It's called Bosch Loopers, which means runners of woods in Dutch. I'm reading Gotham, the history of New York (until 1898) and I found it in there. It somehow seems appropriate. Or maybe it just sounds good to me.

King of Diamonds: It’s Good To Be King

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

I chose Tom Petty's "It's Good To Be King" for the first song to cover in The Deck. I didn't start at Ace because I thought that King would be more fitting for obvious reasons. I did this at home with acoustic and electric guitar, bass, and reason for the keyboard and drum sounds.
