The whole acoustic guitar family got in on this one. I featured rhythm guitar splits to the stereo channels with a Taylor 210 CE Deluxe, the other channel being an Epiphone 12 string acoustic guitar. There is an enhancement, or lead guitar, also played by me with the Taylor, and a Rogue Lap Steel Guitar for accents and leads. These instruments gave new life to an older one of my songs, "Losing Sleep", and frankly, one of my favorites to play. Its a treasure to me and will always be. I hope you enjoy, share, and download it - and subscribe here and on YouTube!

I've really spread the genre spectrum this year a lot further at Danny Hauger Podcasts. I reached my goal of releasing a free song each week! Thanks for your continued support here and on my YouTube Channel: Danny Hauger - this is the 60th free song of 2017, and it makes me proud and something to feel happy about in 2017. I enjoyed this year musically and this acoustic jazz attempt really hit home for me as well in the fun category. I hope you enjoy downloading and sharing it! An early acoustic Christmas present from Danny Hauger Podcasts. Its the first jazz style song I can remember this year, and I enjoyed each chord strike. I hope you will too.

“Being Real” Music and Lyrics by Danny Hauger

I grew up in a small town,

It had its troubles too.
I didn’t focus on the negative

Just want to hang out with you.

 

Lets skate over her house.

And lets grab some food, I want to talk to her.

 

I want to tell you, this is how I feel.

I want to tell you, this is me being real.

 

When I look at her,

Effervescence personified.

I hear music in my ears,

And it sounds just fine.

 

But now she’s got me all discombobulated,

And I’m struggling to keep it under,

But her I see her curls go dancing by,

Its like my mind has been taken by thunder.

I want to tell you, this is how I feel.

I want to tell you, this is me being real.

Its finny to me how my students have clinged to the song, "Careless in My Sleep", or they secretly make fun of me for it. Whatever the motive is, it makes me think about this song of mine quite a lot. Its a song with a lot of personal meaning and expression already, and when I went to find its acoustic unplugged version on my computer, no results came up. I needed to re-explore the song and lay it out without drums. I wanted to voice the depth and reverberence of the song's meaning in a new version so I brought some new strings out to my lap steel guitar and the very first note I recorded was the first note you hear in this new unplugged version. From there, everything was just singing through and it was really enjoyable not just to play, but also to mix. This was the most time I spent mixing a song in a while, and I think it shines through in the mix. Its a free mp3 download of one of my personal favorites, and I hope you will enjoy it! I also recorded a four-track video which you can watch on my YouTube Channel: Danny Hauger. Please download, share, like, and subscribe!!

Mixed a song in Acid Music Studio for the first time in about a decade. I'm impressed with the fluidity of editing but its going ot be quite a learning curve getting all of the shortcuts, movements, and audio processing features down to a science. A good challenge for the holiday season of creative production. The result today is the first new demo, and the first fast paced release here on the podcast in quite a while. So rockers rejoice today! I led this track off with my 5 string bass and powered through a simple slide and hammer on to create the momentum for this song, "Challenges". As always its free to download! Share, subscribe and support!

On November 20th, 17th I had the chance to go and interview my former teacher and mentor Melba Pattillo Beals. Melba was my radio teacher at Dominican University of California, she was also Communications Department chair, and this interview features conversation about history, parenting, and loving yourself and others around you. In a year and a half at San Rafael, I was fortunate enough to gain a wider lens to focus my own perspective. I was taken back mentally to the college classroom above the library where we met twice a week. I hope you enjoy this conversation nearly as much as I did. It was really nice to sit and discuss philosophy and outlook on life with Melba.

Melba inspired me to take a challenging road once and a while, and value myself along the road of life, even when you can't see what's coming around the corner. There were a lot of takeaway quotes from Melba, and I decided to highlight a few of the most motivating quotes with on screen caption.

This interview is a touching part of my past and my future simultaneously. I think we all can gain some insights and perspective from Melba's wisdom. We discuss education, faith, and potential, among many other topics. Not just a conversation about Central High School in Little Rock, we discuss a wide range of topics and I found it both informative and entertaining. To me, Its a cross section of American history and humanity. It was a pleasure to get to spend so much time discussing the uplifting side of the human spirit. Thank you Melba!

Danny Hauger - “Not Sure”

Words and Music by Danny Hauger, © 2017

 

Troubled minds will challenge your old ways of thinking.

Place your bets down on the line.

Count your acorns, count your dollars, count your blessings.

Count what’s yours, then count what’s mine.

 

I’m not sure yet, which way to go.

I’m stabilized here, but I’ll never grow.

 

Peace of mind will make you patiently complacent,

Content to settle for what’s fine.

Where’s adventure going to find you, going to call you?

Your every moment is passing by.

 

I’m not sure yet, which way to go.

I’m stabilized here, but I’ll never grow.

 

--

This was a 2-day recording session originally set up for some slide guitar practice on day 2 of its arrival. The result was a full studio demo and one of my favorite songs I have written in 2017!

This Thanksgiving I led a prayer service at my school. With my new webcam on my desk, it struck me that I might record my thoughts about unity, togetherness, and gratitude with inspiration from the way my Professor at Dominican University, Rabbi Henry Schreibman taught me, to compare, appreciate, and respect traditions of all faiths. In this short prayer service I share opinions from a Muslim blogger in London, a traditional Jewish story of violinist Itzhak Perlman breaking a string on stage, and a prayer from a Christian looking to slow down the prayer before the Thanksgiving meal.

Three perspectives from followers of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity on Gratitude and Thanksgiving to reflect on round your dinner table. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

My Rogue Lap Steel Guitar showed up yesterday! It was late when the box hit the porch, but that didn't stop me from plugging in, tuning up to C6 for the first time, and recording an instrumental song in under an hour before finishing my lesson prep. I didn't have a name when I went to sleep, but this morning the San Clemente sunset was in my mind, and here it is, my first instrumental using only slide guitar. Really fun and I can't wait to get back to the studio tonight and next week to really set up some solid new original material! Thanks for listening!

Ever wondered what it would sound like if Danny Hauger music studios went hip-hop for a day? Probably not, but like any plot of The Simpsons - it happened! Enjoy this fun and uplifting R&B track with real guitar and synthetic instruments belended. I laid the bass and guitar and then had fun improvising lyrics over the top.

 

Leave it Up to You Lyrics by Danny Hauger

www.dannyhauger.com

 

Excitement in life seems to transpire in moments.

Like memories stored in basic components

Like your first great book or being up on stage.

There are favorites you think of on your favorite pages.

 

And on those pages are your long lost loves.

If you had handled them better - if you’d have worn white gloves.

Or maybe if you had been more patient in the moment.

Maybe pause your video games, or just postponed them.

 

Nah, if you had it right then it would have messed up.

There are some people who are just incompatible.

And don’t focus on the past that you can’t change,

Re-focus now your goals are at hand.

And don’t let retractors tell you that you can’t

You can do whatever you want man.

 

I’ll leave it up to you,

Show what you can do.
Can you rise up now? To the challenge

Can you give it all?

To the final fall.

With the penthouse view, in your vantage.

 

I’m the type of guy who would never let you go,

Cause I never played the games, showed you straight to my soul.

Every time you looked around you always tried to find,

The perfect Joe Chin to take you limousine ridin’

Who would take you to town and buy the finest drinks,

And adorn your body with leather and diamond rings.

But I’m the type of guy who likes to kick back at home,

But on the upside you know I’d never leave you alone.

And while you’re waiting for his call when he’s out with other girls,

You could have been home jammin’ with me, SEGA, and Toe Jam n’ Earl.

You might have been bored, but we were always together.
We had someone to share life in every weather.

But that kind of love gets taken for granted

And you delete all the memories that I implanted.

I’ll leave it up to you,

Show what you can do.
Can you rise up now? To the challenge

Can you give it all?

When the mic is yours, and the stage is live.

 It's been a few weeks if not a few months since I sat down and just recorded some instrumental music it was mostly electronic. Ever since I got my 12 string in my new Taylor guitar spent most of my recording time recording acoustic guitars. I've been experimenting with different microphone positions different plane styles and working in steel guitar as well. Today I decided it would be fun to sit down with the digital screen and compose a B and then try to put some synthesizers and instruments over the top. It's also been a while since I experimented with some strings and I thought I would put them on the off beat.

 

 The resulting recording has a really good group to it and remind me of when I recorded the car instrumental commercial music maybe last year. So it was really fun to put it together in about an hour I had to complete a track and even a little bit of a bridge to very the tempo and the main rhythms. The song was recorded in B minor and I even plates and piano on it. I thought the ballot came out great and it's a perfect Halloween type groove even though I'm it's a day late.

When my package was lost, I was so set on getting a Dunlop Lap Dawg Steel slide (chromed brass), that I went out and bought one. I had no idea they were made close by in Benicia, California. That's pretty cool! What was even cooler, was bringing it to my room this morning to give it a first go, no editing, just a straight cut of recording over an acoustic bed with my trusty old guitar "Mitch". So here it is! A fresh recording, unedited for audio sake, to hear what the Dunlop Lap Dawg sounds like in the hands of a first-time amateur, I am going to LOVE playing this!
