What's Babu Music? Well, the name came from our granddaughter Charley Rose Regan. She calls me Babu & calls my wife Barb, BeBe. We call her Charley, among other things --all good. I also call Barb by many others names --again, all good.
I've been playing music for something like 58 years (as of 2021), which is rather an ambigous statement, depending on how much time during that time was spent actually playing. Nevertheless, the most frequent instrument, and the one I play with others, is the electric bass guitar. Singing was never a part of my credentials primarily because I don't like singing while playing bass. To me they seem to be two drastically different mental functions, but I've always been amazed when other bassists have no problem with it. It seems I use my vocal cords when playing bass, and my fingers when I sing.
In the past, I only put voice to song when making a demo for others. These, too, were essentially with that in mind. Initially I wanted to surprise Barb (Moudge) with a bunch of songs I recorded for our 41st Wedding Anniversary (2019). They were recorded with the intention of providing some of my favorite local musicians with demos, so we could record them in two of my favorite studios, Saturation Acres and Eight Days A week, operated by Brett Alexander and Brett Alexander & Paul Smith, respectively (and respectfully). Then, I was hoping to take some money from the sale of our house to pay for all of it, but we came up quite a bit short on that score. The only thing we downsized was space, not cost. Perhaps one day...
This list has grown considerably since that initial intention, and will likely continue until I can't because I can't stop.
All of the tunes below were arranged in Band-in-a-Box, and then uploaded and processed through Cakewalk by BandLab and/or Reaper. Click on the name of a song and be taken to a page with some yadda yadda, links to WAV & Video files (with lyrics) that you can listen to and/or download. Or not. I understand that this page is just a place to keep everything organized, and I will be pretty much the only visitor. Still, there is an aesthetic façade that covers my organizing.
