Make It Fun – Vol. 1: Tracks for Jamming With Ronald Jenkees

Psst: Last day for CD/Shirt orders for Christmas delivery in the USA is December 20th. Thanks a million to those of you giving my music to someone this year!

*Can now be purchased on Bandcamp (if you want to preview them head to Bandcamp) -OR- directly from me here.

This is a collection of tunes I thought would be fun to jam along with using my style or your own. For each track, I peeled back a few layers to make it jammable for a lead instrument player or a drummer.

It took way longer than I thought it would getting things working again on some of these older tracks, software-wise (i.e. 2009 vs. 2016, 32bit vs 64bit, old instrument and effects plugins not working anymore). Once I got into the swing of fixing things and remembering how I did things with each track, it turned out to be fun bringing a few of these songs back to life and then more fun peeling back a couple of the layers to hear them in a different way.

I hope it inspires a jam session or two, or just enjoyment from hearing the tracks with some of the layers gone to let other layers breath more.

Thanks a million and have fun! Back to work on RJCD5 which will be out early 2017. ;)

Jam Along Album: Cool Layers Underneath

In progress: 10 song jam along album

Some December newnew: Rhodes Deep

This tune is one of my favorites for the new album, which is almost done - need a couple more songs finished to have a complete thing ready to go. I also need album art. 12/6 edit: I reached out to someone I've been working with on a separate project and if it works out, RJCD5 CDs are going to look ridiculously amazing and fun. I just went from feeling kinda lost to suuuuuper excited. LOL

Christmas is getting closer and it has me thinking of deadlines and shipping stuff. I LOVE shipping the things I made, so thanks a million if you're ordering anything from my store. The full discography (all 4 of my autographed albums) is still on sale. I also discounted m'Ladys' Cut T-Shirts to make some room here in t-shirt headquarters. Mainly I'd like to have only unisex shirts for simplicity, so all those items must go!

Last day for CD/Shirt orders for Christmas delivery in the USA is December 20th.

Big huge thanks and I hope your December is awesome and full of fun and music.

Now you can buy all of my physical CDs (signed) in one-go, for 25% OFF. Been meaning to do this for a while. Finally did the math, financial calculations, and got it approved by HQ. If you're after digital stuff, there is still 30% OFF my Full (Digital) Discog here: Bandcamp

I'm really thankful to have anyone listening to my music in whatever way works for them, but I will always love handling this real stuff that I made whether it be CDs, shirts, or maybe some vinyl in the future. With downloads and streaming, it's crazy to me that I still ship CDs out at all these days, but I love it because it's a tangible thing. I made it, when someone buys two or more I still sign them, and then I have to make sure it gets delivered. It's totally clerical and not-so-creative, but it's a fun process when you're the maker of that thing, and it gives the other parts of your brain some rest.

More RJCD5 stuff – Dr. Goose Robbins (both parts!)

Heyhey! I've been working on this one for a while. It came together in two pieces and today I uploaded the second half. Super excited that one song spurred on two videos. 2 videos, same song, same hat. Would you just look at that. I'm still working on RJCD5. It'd be awesome if I had it out late this year. I don't know yet - so much is still in the mix. Making videos slows things down for me (production-wise), but they also push me to jam more which is important for my health. :) Thanks for watching and listening!

Expensive Ice Chill Cuts Delux (clip)

Happy 2016! Been working on this chill thing, whatever it is, for a good while. I keep wanting to return to it to work on it more, so I thought I'd pause and share some. Hope you dig it, and thanks a million for listening to my tunes! Big thanks to my friend Tnevs for his guitar on here.
