I can’t believe it’s been a year since I’ve recorded something. Shame on me ๐Ÿ˜‰ In any case, the Christmas season has caught up to me and as every year I spent a few hours on two weekends to record this medley. This year it’s a medley of the traditional Austrian Christmas carol “Still, Still, Still” and “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”. Hope you enjoy it and have a Merry Christmas.

This is the traditional Christmas Medley I record every year as a present to my friends. This year it’s a medley of the traditional Austrian Christmas carol “Es wird scho glei dumpa”, which translated means something like “It’s going to get dark soon”, and Mariah Carey’s hit “All I Want for Christmas”. Also I managed to sneak in the “Little Drummer Boy” at the end. Merry Christmas!

I put this little piece together on two weekends in a period where I wished that a time shift would occur and I could jump ahead a few weeks in time (to know what comes next, of course ;-)…this was just before I moved from Austria to California). I really enjoyed recording the verse solo guitar for this one, in particular because of the cool guitar sound that is sort of in between crunchy and distorted and played with the neck pickup in single-coil mode of my 7-string. Also the tapping part of the main heavy solo was quite challenging to get it the way I wanted it.

This is a cover of Yoko Kanno’s beautiful song “Don’t Bother None” from the soundtrack of the awesome Japanese anime series Cowboy Bebop. This recording is different from my other recordings in that there’s only vocals and my crappy nylon acoustic guitar. Even the percussion in the background is just me hammering away at the body of my acoustic guitar. Additionally, except for parts of the main guitar solo, I only play with my fingers and not with a pick on this track. Enjoy!

This is my Christmas Medley 2005. It’s a medley of the traditional, German Christmas carol “Oh du Frรถhliche” and John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas”. Of course, there’s a bit of shredding in there as well, otherwise it wouldn’t be one of my recordings, but I hope you enjoy it nevertheless ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is a slow instrumental tune that was created very quickly on the acoustic guitar. The acoustic guitar that plays the rhythm is actually my really crappy nylon-string acoustic ๐Ÿ˜‰ This is something I had lying around for a while and thought I’d never complete, but alas it is finished now and I thought I might as well release it publicly. It’s very different from the music I usually make and also listen to.

This is the Christmas Medley I record for my friends as a kind of Christmas gift every year. This time it’s a medley of “Merry Little Christmas” and “Joy to the World”. It’s a mixture of fusion and punk rock. Enjoy!

This is quite a heavy, short, instrumental shredding rock piece that I put together in a hurry. It was inspired by one of the video games I was working on at work at the time I composed this. That video game was an action game involving a helicopter flying around in the desert, and that’s what I had in mind when writing this little tune.

A guitar-oriented cover version of the well-known “Happy Birthday” song.

This is the Christmas medley I record every year, this time for 2003. It turned out to be quite heavy this year…ah well ๐Ÿ™‚ There are three Christmas carols in the medley. Can you recognize all of them?
