Shots

Writing a few tunes today. Decided to spare you my vocals, and give you a little Saturday afternoon guitar riff… decided to call it SHOTS 🙂

Hope you are having an AMAZING weekend!!! Wherever you are on this planet… whatever your are going through, we only have one SHOT at this thing we call LIFE, so hope you are LIVING IT to the FULLEST!!!

Raito OUT!

Just Keep Creating

Sooooo….Love the movie Finding Nemo… ‘just keep swimming’, ‘just keep swimming’!!!! This popped into my head today, after a 2-hour long songwriting session, with the infamous lyricist/vocalist Ed Legal.

Here are three video highlights. Please only watch if you want to see raw creativity at inception! This is the raw beginning of the creative process …

Please don’t watch if you are expecting Top 40…

Pull The Pin happened last  10 minutes of session:

Mason Jar  (was a song I wrote called Slept In Days… Ed has come up with something I never could have imagined).

Turn  (a song the Ed magically had lyrics for :))

Was a productive 2 hours 🙂

Cheers,

Raito

Ovation Guitar Meditation

So last week I rocked some blues on my Strat and, rightfully so, my Ovation got jealous. So, I decided to slow things down a bit, and jam out to a sad SAD emotional backing track in A Minor. Put this on repeat, and you will either fall asleep or find yourself in a deep trance. If you make it past the two minute mark… thank you!!! One take, zero audio editing… recorded from iPhone and Flip video camera (meaning you get flubs and all). Editied in Sony Movie Studio Platinum

FYI sincere thanks to @guitarbackingtracks4 for the sad, sad backing track. Paid for via PayPal to support local music 🙂
