ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
AfterThoughts album notes:

Thanks for taking a look at my music!!

My rock instrumental music covers everything from hard rock/metal through the genre and includes some smooth jazz as well. a 100% original, creative blend of guitar and synthesizers/other instrumentation over a bass and drum rhythm section that truly rocks! It has been an awesome journey creating and producing it all, and I hope you will come along with me, because its not over!


More About AfterThoughts

The Tracks:

Good George is pretty much a straight-ahead rock/rock guitar song, which I created for a good friend. I like the beginning of it, where the layers of music are being added on top of each other, and also the end where there is a melodic-type solo and fresh change of pace and mood finishing out the tune. I also like it because George is just a heck of a guy....

Dad's Shuffle is a song that is purely for fun...it was fun to make and I still have fun listening to it. It's just straight-up rock guitar, done to an urban "drive by" type of beat. No mysteries...

Florida is relatively straight up rock/classic rock music. I was pleased with some of the guitar work in it, especially an emotional solo at the end.

The next two songs, "Newbie Jazz" and "Lincs to Isis" are simple and very natural. In both cases the creation and recording of the tunes took place very quickly, smoothly and naturally. They were in my heart waiting to be expressed!

Newbie Jazz is all about smooth jazz/blues improvisation. The notes just flowed and were luckily being recorded!

Lincs to Isis is a completely different genre and tune. It is definitely hard rock/metal, and its name is a true double-entendre (If anyone gets to the bottom of what the name is all about I'll have to give them the album) . It would make (or already is) a good "stoner" tune. Ya just gotta hear it!

"Finding Yes..." is more along the lines of progressive rock and/or jazz/rock fusion. "Finding Yes" is an adventure and a reflection, a meek celebration, really, of my strongest musical influence: Yes (the progressive rock band...this is no surprise to the people who know me).

"Smallfry" is a little acoustic tune of sympathy....sympathy for a little boy who wanted so badly to play outside today, but it's raining...His face can be seen in the living room window, with a tear running down...

"Shot by Three" is progressive instrumental rock music, featuring a unique and creative blend of rock guitar and synthesizers. I especially like this tune. It was full of surprises very fun to make.

"Finding Yes II (The Galloping Basses) is perhaps the version of this production that I like the best. I just love a big, heavy bass with a lot of "meat" on it, and that is what you get on all three versions...but for this version, I thought, "Why not use two basses and double the fun?"

Either way or any-which-way it's all unmistakably Tim. So please do enjoy, and yes, there is more coming.

Yours In Rock,
Tim

My strongest musical influence was the progressive rock band Yes, through their long span of success as a band and as solo artists. Other unmistakable influences include Led Zep, Rush, Aerosmith, Guns 'n Roses, Ozzy Ozbourne, Pantera, Tony Iommi, Korn, Jeff Beck, Lee Ritenour, Larry Carlton, John Williams and Buckethead, bless him, as well. (Much as Yes was part of my development, only a precious few of my songs resemble their sound...I believe they are inimitable!)
