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!

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!

"Where I'm Going" Words and Music by Danny Hauger

 

Extended journeys have a way of working out,

That you can’t see too far ahead

The part that’s tragic is the living part of life,

That we must learn more from the dead.

 

I’m waiting for the life I’m building to take shape

And I’m hoping to be good enough.

All in  all I’m rising up to meet my faith.

So hear me roar and call my bluff.

 

I don’t know where I’m going

Only know where I’ve been

I don’t know where I’m going

But you’re welcome to come along.


Forgive me if I am lonely,

I thought I’d have more time to be

The friend you’d waited all along for.

While I was looking to please me.

 

There’s a selfishness I’m serving all the time.

A short-sighted loss of light

If I had taken one more moment

I’d seperate what was wrong from what was right.

 

Your setting sun will be another’s rising light,

Your charted path will be their guide.

Three simple tracks. Two 12-strong, unplugged, acoustic guitars panned slightly left and right to make a reflective and relaxing instrumental with a mix of major and minor keys. Plus a live drum performance on my new Alesis Nitro kit produced this simple track. It reminded me of trying to keep your thoughts focused on one task but being distracted by the other thoughts in your head. 

Enjoy, share, and subscribe!

September has been a good motnh so far, though we are waiting for the fall weather in California, and being thoughtful for our friends in the Southeast sheltering from storms. Today I worked through a smooth instrumental jam with keys, bass, and guitar, and led some synthesizer lead. I am calling this week's free download "Sampling Plans".

Guitar players often have a few chords that theystrum as soona s they pick up a guitar. D Major is one of the most moveable chords on the fretboard. Combine these two guitarist driven facts and you'll soon see how I developed this brand new acoustic instrumental mix. Watch the recording video on YouTube!

"Upside" is quite relaxing and positive, and more or less wrote itself. As we knoe, upside is not all climb and ascensions, so I took a few side streets through a bridge that disrupt momentarily, the flow of acoustic energy with some bass. I like the contrasting final product and I hope you will enjoy and share this free music download.

“When I’m Older” lyrics and music by Danny Hauger    www.dannyhauger.com

 

The hours pass, the greener grass, it isn’t grown yet.

I’m all for one, and I’m one for all, and I’m all in.

Practiced all the problems solved, was I wrong then?

And what’s the next thing that will test me, will I be losing sleep?

Repeat the past and then at last, I see, the future comes to me.

Repeat the past and then at last, I see, the future comes to me, right now.

 

And I’m told that it’s gonna get cold when I’m older,

I should’ve tried to be more applied when I was bolder then,

If I show well I will get sold out I warn you.

I will fly on unforeseen skies and I’ll float away.

 

Now I’m back at the present, its a gift to be here.

Every day every week, every month in the year.

The granted time that we get here, its give and we take.

We gamble, we bargain, the clock ticks, and the time we waste.
