MP3 Player

The thing I don't like about ReverbNation is that it only allows you to upload mp3 files to your player, which sound kinda crappy.

I recorded these demos on an 11-year-old, portable 8 track recorder which is limited anyway, but I'd just like to point out that the "swishy" sounds in the recordings are a result of mp3 conversion. Sorry, I can't do anything about that.

Live Set List

Here's a list of some of the songs you may hear from me/us live, there are more, but this is a start... JJ & AJ Setlist: Sold my Soul (Zakk Wylde) Between Heaven and Hell (Zakk Wylde) Raven (James Johnson) Plush (STP) Interstate Love Song (STP) I Am the Highway (Audioslave) Pool of Alibis (James Johnson) Staring Into Darkness (James Johnson) Game Face (James Johnson) Breathe (Pink Floyd) Time (Pink Floyd) Comfortably Numb (Pink Floyd) Van Deimen's Land (U2) Like a Stone (Audioslave) Be Yourself (Audioslave) Your Decision (Alice in Chains) It's Alright (James Johnson) End of the Line (James Johnson) Watchtower (Bob Dylan *Jimi Hendrix) A Well That's Goin' Dry (James Johnson) Lost for Words (Pink Floyd) Coming Back to Life (Pink Floyd) Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd) Waterfall (Jimi Hendrix) Crossroads (Robert Johnson *Cream) To me, the point of doing solo/duo shows is to play songs that I enjoy without necessarily worrying about sticking to one specific sub-genre. I try to pick songs that adapt well to these kinds of shows, though. I/we only play the songs that we have polished the most at a given time, and sometimes we prepare specific lists from this list and polish them to suit the occasion. That's not always the case in videos that I post, which are sometimes spur of the moment and off the cuff!
