The second installment of Morphine transcriptions is available for sale at noteflight.
With Morphine practically back together as Vapors of Morphine, and my new Morphine tribute band based out of Boulder, Colorado, Morpheus, I am going to release as many transcriptions of Morphine tunes for Baritone Sax as I can. Enjoy, and don't forget to Buy the Sheet Music For Honey White! I get 50 cents on your $5 and whoever owns the rights (Mark Sandman Estate?) gets a cut as well, after the sheet music publishing fee.
The next video music tutorial is as crazy as the last one. More saxes! Here's

In celebration of manifestation (and my birthday today), I present a score for Earth, Wind, and Fire's classic hit, Fantasy!
I can't help but be inspired by this song... so inspired that i transcribed every note into sheet music, then played it back. It's just one small manifestation that brings me joy.

I discovered this song before it hit #1 on the Latin charts. I think it's still #2. I love the concept of telepathy and practice it often. This song is only 4 chords, but the structure and the way things come in and out is very distinct. It was a fun song to learn and play. Unfortunately, my Spanish sucks so I didn't do a very good job on the lyrics, but fortunately, they are spelled out in the video and in the sheet music!

The second in a series of video tutorials brings us a Saxy version of Empire of the Sun's Old Flavours. This arrangement was transcribed from a bunch of synthesizers and arpeggiators into a bunch of saxes.

In advance of the new original music single to be released later in 2021 under the Gunky Funky moniker, I am starting a new series of music video tutorials where I take a popular song that I like and not only transcribe one or many of the parts into sheet music, but also perform those parts on YouTube from the sheet music. The first song is I Wanna Be Where You Are, originally performed by Michael Jackson.
You can find the sheet music for this work on noteflight.

As something I do more than 1/3 of my life, I truly value my sleep experience. After over a decade of use, I gave away my vintage 2008 king-size Simmons Beautyrest Black because my new place didn't have room for it. Instead, I slept on double-size futon for 6 months until I couldn't take anymore. The time had come for me to find a new luxury mattress. After a lot of internet research and exactly zero personal testing of actual mattresses, it appeared to come down to 3 options
In these unprecedented times of quarantines and curfews, the key factor of our human morality we are processing is that of "free will." Free Will is the most quintessential element of our existence here on planet earth. Of course, we all want free will for ourselves, and we have been generally given that. The bigger challenge for human existence is not asserting our own free will, but to only have free will up to the extent that it does not impinge upon the free will of others.
It has been said that our primary mission in this existence as humans on this planet is a decision between "service to self" and "service to others." In the case of free will, many on this plane have mastered it in terms of "service to self." Unfortunately for them, this is a pyramid scheme, and only the true top 1% will succeed. On the other hand, in a world of "service to others," the system sustains itself if everyone is at least 51% service to others. The key is a balance to experience human life sustainably with the evolutionary goal of service to some higher purpose beyond that of your own physical body... or even gene pool or social circle.
