Scary Beard

This is a demo of a tune that Patrick likes  and he thinks you should like it too. It features…you guessed it.. Patrick, scraping by on several instruments.
The tune is about a very helpful, happy and friendly man named Raz who fixes washing machines, brings you food, and has beard that scares people–mainly Americans–in airports.

My Humble Chops Smoke Your Humble Chops

Websites are for boasting, everybody knows. Go to anyone’s website, what are they doing? They’re boasting, that’s what they’re doing! They are saying, “look at me, look at what I can do! Here are some pictures of me. This is why you should choose me over anyone else.”

Patrick is way too humble and spiritually advanced for this kind of behavior. In fact, I’d go as far as saying that Patrick’s humble chops smoke absolutely everyone else’s humble chops. This is why Patrick decided to let others do the boasting for him. Patrick didn’t write any of the posts on this website, honest..And this post was not inspired by Jeremy Stacey in any way.

Playing Guitar Is Easy

Playing guitar is easy, everyone knows. Playing slide guitar must be even easier – you don’t have to fret a single note. Patrick enjoys playing many instruments and insists on doing so regardless of the results, or the effect it has on his family. This week Patrick tried to play acoustic slide guitar. “It must be easy,” Patrick thought. “All those guitar players can do it, and they don’t seem to have much going on upstairs.” Much to Patrick’s surprise, however, he discovered it’s a lot trickier than it looks!
He persevered and wrote a tune for it, called Back Porch. It features Patrick kind of playing slide guitar and some other instruments that he’s tormented his family with over the years.

Not Jazz

Patrick wonders why some musicians who do lots of gigs considered jazz gigs, pride themselves on comments about them being not jazz. Patrick likes jazz and he isn’t afraid to say it. Patrick makes daring and provocative statements like this all the time. However, Patrick admits that if he gets good enough, he might start labeling himself “not jazz” too.
