"Night 13" By popular demand, Kristen and I are back with another song, this one chosen by Kristen. The song is from a band called Auri, that features two members of the band Nightwish, Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donockley, and the wife of Tuomas, Johanna Kurkela, a popular Finnish singer. It's a nice easy going song and worked out very well for us to cover. We hope you all enjoy it too.

"Another for Anitra" I have so many songs I have never posted yet, so I figure I should start putting some up before I write anything new. Time for another harmonica song. This one came about because years ago I had written a guitar song after learning a classical song called Anitra's Dance, from the music written by the composer Edvard Grieg for the play Peer Gynt. I never recorded my song called Another for Anitra, but one day got the idea after playing it, I wondered if it would work on the harmonica. I had to use two to do it since there is a key change. So I used an A harmonic minor and a C diatonic harmonica to do the song, worked out okay, but bit of a challenge to use two of them, and the song is all single notes so that was a bit difficult to hit all single notes all the way through the song. Hope you all like this one, thanks for listening.

Centerfield (John Fogerty cover) - Glenn Basham and Mark Taylor The idea for this one came about because I had been reading John Fogerty's autobiography, and when the subject of Centerfield came up, I had remembered that some time back Glenn and I had covered John's song, Old Man Down The Road. Someone asked Glenn at that time to do Centerfield, so I thought I would ask Glenn if he wanted to to do it now, he agreed, and this is what we came up with. I play the lead and rhythm guitar, Glenn does the vocals, drums, bass, and he made the video. Baseball season opens in about a week, so enjoy our rendition of this song!!

Monday Morning Mood melody & guitar by Mark Taylor, lryics and vocals by Tyler Selph It's always such an honor when a fellow musician likes a song you have written so much that they want to add to it. In this case, Tyler Selph, a fando friend, heard my song "Ups and Down" and got inspired to write lyrics for it. He asked if he could and I said yes right away. Tyler wrote and sang the lyrics and made the video, and here is the result. We hope you like it, and my big thanks to Tyler for his efforts in making my song into something a little different and very nice to listen to. And we are posting this today, hence the title. Thanks for listening.

"Bolden Melody" How about a happy sounding harmonica song? These days we need happy music. This one came about as the result of a guitar contest I was involved in a awhile back, my entry won a 50 dollar gift certificate from Sweetwater, so I ordered a new harmonica, a Hohner Golden Melody in the key of B major. The song got it's name that way, I changed Golden to Bolden, using the key of the song, B, instead of the G in golden. So there you have it, hope you like my Bolden Melody.

Also tuned a full step down to get a nastier sound. Thanks for listening. And when you hear the end of the song you will know how it got it's name.

"Open Strings" I've always had a fondness for songs with open strings.

This one was an idea I had, I was in my music room one rainy day fooling around with some chords and wrote this music. It was raining outside and I noticed that I could not hear any raindrops hitting the window or roof, so that is how the song got it's name. I proposed this to my partners and Glenn wrote and sang the lyrics, Yvalain added some strings and glockenspeil and the video and effects, and we had another song.

"Deanna" This song was written for a good friend of mine who recently lost her mother to cancer. She was feeling very down so this was my attempt to make her feel a bit better. It was also an attempt to prove to myself that I could write a song in standard tuning without a capo of any kind. Not a complicated song, and I use a favorite technique here, chord variations going up and down the fretboard, another thing I like to do other than staying with a standard chord type. As always, thanks for listening.

Kind of like saying ta ta too too into the harmonica on that little rhythm hook I do here. Anyway, thanks for listening.

Starting with this song, that was inspired after a visit from our fando friend Mark Fussell. Mark has been using a spider capo on some of his music too, and when he was here showed me some of his original music using the capo. I used that tuning he was using and came up with this song and am dedicating it to Mark. Thanks everyone for listening.

"Keep On Smiling" Another spider capo venture, this time a song dedicated to my good friend and music collaborator Kathy Shortt. At the end of all her videos, she has the little saying, "keep smiling", always a positive message. This is a happy kind of song so I hope it makes you all smile, just like my friend Kathy does me. Thanks for listening.

"In The Middle of a Heartbeat" Now here is one that show off the talents of my daughter Kristen. She plays the flute and the piano on this one. This is a song from the band Helloween, mainly a hard rock band, but this is one of their more mellow songs. Another one of those bands that many here have probably not heard of, I had not until my son John and Kristen introduced me to them. Thanks for listening. And oops, cut my head out of the video, had to make sure I got Kristen and the keyboard in the entire picture.

Could it be? Mark Taylor & Kathy Shortt One day I was fooling around with a little chord progression, and decided it sounded good so I made it into a song structure. I then thought, I bet Kathy could put words to this, so I sent it to her and bing bang she came up with the words almost right away. So here is that song, I do all the music and drums, Kathy wrote the melody and lyrics and does all vocals. Thanks for listening.

"Lovey Dovey" Here's another spider capo song. This one got it's name because while writing it up in my music room, I had been thinking about my wife, and outside the open window I could hear doves cooing. So I came up with the name Lovey Dovey. He He. Thanks for listening!!

"Sugar Puddin'" Another spider capo song, but a little different. Fretting only one note with it, the A note on the tenth fret of the B string is all. The rest of the notes are open. So obviously the song is in the key of A major. Found this little song hiding in there. And as for the title, I had none for it, so I decided to name it the first dumb thing that popped into my head, and Sugar Puddin' was it. I have no idea why. Ha Ha!! Thanks for listening.

Battle of evermore with Frost & Mark Taylor Time to post this song that was a challenge for me for sure!! Got to play mandolin and guitar on this song from Led Zeppelin IV, released in 1971. Our friend Frost asked me to do this with him, then he brought Kathy in for the female vocals on this. Frost provided the main vocals here. A song I was not familiar with, had to learn from scratch. I used the Zepp recording and also from a live version that Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart did. We hope you enjoy this one!!
