Here is our first shot at recording a live video in my little studio space. I ran everything live and multi tracked it all. I had never done a live multitrack, I had never done video at all before. Any of out "music videos" were done by my brother.
Here are some samples of us playing live and recording on the fly. I am the bearded guy playing lead guitar:
"Walkin' the Dog" - cover
"Fortunate Son" - CCR cover
"Who Needs a Man" - Original
Here are a couple of our "music videos" I guess you would call this a Mtv style music video. They are not live.
"Election Day (Makin' Moonshine with Uncle Grandpa)" -original song. And yes we really made moonshine during the filming of us. This video was nominated for a State music award.
"Can't See the Smoke" - a crunchy rock song, little heavier than our usual stuff. But it also has a chorus that makes the girls shake their booty. We wrote this song to get girls to shake tha booty. We succeeded. Most of the girls get out on the dance floor and get down with it. Sometimes they jump on stage. I am lucky I have a understanding wife.
Oh, this song was nominated for "Rock Song of the Year" in the "New Mexico Music Awards". We lost to the guitar player from the famous band "Tesla". Didnt seem fair to me that we were competing with a guy who had been on Mtv. But I guess thats the way it goes. Here is the video:
"Backslider" we shot this video in the studio that we tracked the drums in. Its a cozy little studio.
