Bob began writing/arranging songs in high school and he continued writing while he lived in Texas & Chicago. He kept right on writing when he moved back to the Port Huron area. These songs include some other talented musicians as well. Check out Bob’s style here, Some of this dates back to the 70s, 80s & 90s so put on your old school hat.
The most important thing is we always had fun!
Everything has Value (if you were alive in the sixties you’ll be a lot more likely to get the gist of this song)
Evil Storm This was just for fun, but it does sound like a pretty evil storm This was also one of the more complex drum patterns I’ve ever written (like a drummer would ever read this)
AshCash this one is pretty cool Oren Fisher props, he did all the work
JazzRap oxymoron I know
Smell of Freedom more stuff just for fun
Urban experimental, mixing genres
I don’t wanna I don’t wanna work anymore ..
Private Fears This one is more personal and a look into my darker issues
Take Me Home We’ve all thought it
Campsite Can’t really explain this one,
This That and the Other Name out front should have told you; a bunch of jumbled ideas and rambling
Sequential Stroll boring stroll in the park except for piano solo somewhere in there, also of note the bass was played on a Strat
New Today nothing is new today, so kind of boring day, but something is haunting
Lookin’ in the Mirror We’re more alike than different
Wild Just plain weird music in 5/4 (mostly,) some 4/4 measures thrown in to keep you paying attention
CountMeOut I love playing in odd times signatures, it’s fun This one is 7/4, the above song is 5/4 If you jump over to the Bob & Barry page 3 Forks is 11/8 🙂
Cold City What it feels like to live in the big cold city, this one is really old
Found this old thing
Tacky Teaser probably the first song I actually put pen to paper and wrote. Originally written for a small jazz band (and performed as such), I eventually made it into a GM sequence which is what is shown here I was 17 or so at the time
