"Witchita Lineman"

I was listening to the audiobook, "The Wrecking Crew" about how Glen Campbell came to record this Jimmy Webb song and how Rolling Stone named it one of the top 200 songs of all time. I learned it on piano and realized it is truly a great song, so I decided to cover it, and did all the instruments and vocals.

"What Kind of Fool"

An original song I wrote back in 1990 in my head while I was walking towards Venice Beach. I did an original demo with an SP-12 drum machine and a 4 track cassette deck back then, but I just redid it in Pro Tools.

"Freedom Isn't Free"

An ANTHEM for Sex Workers. VIdeo features a montage of porn stars, prostitutes, strippers, pro dommes. etc. I wrote the song and played all the instruments and produced the track. HOW MANY FACES CAN YOU IDENTIFY.

"Brandy"

My acoustic version of Brandy (You're a Find Girl). This was the song that got me into finger picking. I imagined how James Taylor might do it.

"Goodbye Hello"

I wrote this song a few years back and refined the lyrics over time. Someone described it as " A Guide to Life.". I like that description. As usual. I did everything on it, vocals, instruments, etc. all of course with the help of the Woofie Katt.

"Next Door to An Angel"

What a happy song. My favorite Neil Sedaka song by far. Not his biggest hit, too similar to "Breaking Up is Hard to Do" musically and "Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen" lyrically which came before. I used a vocoder for some of the back up vocals, played and sang everything else. Panasonic Lumix GH4 for video, FCP X for editing, Pro Tools for recording. Neil Sedaka should be in the R&R Hall of Fame. What's up with that?

"You Tear Me Up"

Another "recreation," this one the first song I every loved as a child by Ricky Nelson, "You Tear Me Up." It took a bit, but I think I nailed the amazing James Burton guitar solo. After playing with Ricky, he went on to play with Elvis. The song also featured the Jordanaires, which I did my best to mimic. If you look closely, Woofie rips at my shirt just as the vocal starts. "Hey, who cares about the song, I need more petting."

"I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better"

A recreation of one of my all time favorite songs. Getting the guitar sounds was made easy by having the same instruments that McGuinn and Crosby played, the Rick 12 and the Gretch. I also think the original guitar solo is one of the all time greats. I tried to match it exactly. I tried to duplicate all the parts, bass and drums as well.

"Waiting on a Woman"

I played all the instruments and did all the characters for this satire/parody/spoof/tribute of one of my favorite music videos, Brad Paisley's Waiting on a Woman, which features Andy Griffith as the old man. I ordered the James Burton Paisley Telecaster just for the guitar solo. I did all the characters, the vocal and played all the instruments except for the Woofie Katt's impromptu avant grade keyboard jam at the end. Bad Woofie!

"Dear Prudence"

A labour of love, I tried to recreate every sound of my favorite Beatles production, Dear Prudence, right down to the opening jet plane. I used ADT (Automatic Double Tracking, a Beatles effect) on the J-160E acoustic guitar and vocal, and the RS127 EQ (also a popular Beatles tool) on just about everything. I did change the melody to something in my range. The finger picking style was taught to John Lennon by Donovan in India. I think I got as close as possible to the original.

"Fabulous Flasher Kari" Video
Desktop/Download   Stream   Mobile

Found this gem from the first Fabulous Flashers movie. However, the original music soundtrack, which was the first intrumental I composed for this movie, had been lost. So I recreated it from scratch, with a few improvements and additions.

"1-2-3" "Let's Hang on" Medley

Check out this rough video from 1980 of Salazar performing a medley of the 2 disco hits that I produced and arranged, "1-2-3" and "Let's Hang On." That's me in the back playing guitar.
