LO-FI DEMOS

I have been writing songs and instrumental pieces for guitar for 60 years. I figure it's about time to give them the production-love they deserve. I'm embarking on a new project to record some of them carefully on EPs with professional help. I've begun by recording lo-fi demos of my personal catalogue on Garage Band, recording just myself and my guitar in bare arrangements. Some of the songs posted here have been recorded on CDs by The Dogmatics and by Julianna Goldsmith. I like these songs a lot, as if I hadn't written them myself. I don't think of myself as a performer, just a songwriter and a back-porch guitarist, and my care in these demos is to deliver the songs. I'm not very adept at recording tech and I've only just begun learning to use Garage Band, so these tracks appear here warts and all -- or maybe just all warts. They are rough drafts of demos. All the songs are copyrighted by yrs trly, Istvan Csicsery-Ronay, Jr.
