This page contains both original song demos and recorded covers. The original demos, some rough, some more polished, were meant to be first drafts to be revisited later when recording them more properly. I'll be adding more material as soon as I locate it in my archives.
Listen at your own risk!!

Z ORIGINALS

Angel Love   Z-vocals and acoustic guitars.
This is one of the oldest songs that I actually have a recording of (1994). It was written by me while on the road in Anderson, Indiana of all places. It was inspired by my hearing my as-yet unborn children's laughter coming from their mother's voice. I was deathly ill with the flu when I recorded all vocal and guitar parts by myself in my hotel room with an old school 4-track cassette recorder.

Leaves That Fall   Daryl Wheatley-vocals and piano, Z-guitars
This song was written by my good friend Daryl Wheatley. It is a haunting song that I intend to record properly some day. This is a bit of a rough recording but is definitely worth a listen. 1997

October Song (Autumn's Glory)    Z-acoustic guitars
This song was originally from a riff I came up with while on a USO Overseas tour to Asia in 1992. Written at Iwakuni Marine Air Station-Japan. It is currently my ring tone on my cell phone. 2007

Warmer At The Pole    Z-vocals and guitars
This song was written about global warming from yet another riff spawned while on my USO tour of Asia. It was inspired by learning that in the next few years, the Arctic ocean will be completely ice-free during the summer which drastically impacts polar bears and other species. I tried to emulate whale song with my volume swells near the solo and outro. Lyrics were last minute and need some polishing. 2007

Ziggy Wiggy    Z-vocals and acoustic guitars
This song was written as an attempt to make satirical fun of rap music which I pretty much can't stand. A lot of the modern 'C'rap, as I call it, is supremely ignorant, highly derogatory of women and is classless in general. Don't hate on me, it's just one man's opinion. The irony is I fully enjoyed creating and then listening back to these 'beats' created with only my acoustic guitar and my mouth. It really was meant as a joke and not to offend. 2007

Z COVERS

El Farol    Z-acoustic and electric guitars
This is one of my favorite Santana songs off of his Supernatural album. I've been covering Santana since high school which was an incredibly long time ago. Recorded in 2007

Sister Golden Hair    Z-guitars and drums
This is one of my favorite America songs. 2007

Tangerine    Z-vocals and guitar
A favorite Zeppelin track of mine. This one's been on my solo acoustic gig set list from the start!! Love the multi-string harmonics on the final note! 2007

Tears    Z-vocals and guitar
Rush anyone? This is from their 2112 album. Has one major volume leap at start of second verse but otherwise is a good take. 2007

Tumbling Tumbleweeds    Z-vocals, acoustic and electric guitars
One of my many favorite Marty Robbins tunes. I am from NM ranching country after all, the capitol of tumbleweeds. 2007

Ventura Highway    Z-vocals and acoustic guitars
Classic America hit. 2007

Wish You Were Here    Z-vocals and acoustic guitars
Classic Pink Floyd hit. Been covering this one since high school!! 2007
