Singled Out: Todd Grubbs' Barto'k Off

Today guitar virtuoso Todd Grubbs tells us about "Barto'k Off" from his brand new album "Return of The Worm". Here is the story:

A big majority of my songs are very composed. I do use improvising as a tool when composing and live I improvise extensively but most of the time my compositions are very crafted. When working on my new CD (Return of the Worm) I decided to do something a little different and create a song that was completely improvised. When I play live I always make sure to record the performance for reference, but most of the time the club or theater turns music on as soon as we finish.

One time this small club we were playing at didn't turn on the tunes and I ended up with about 15 minutes of pure unadulterated bar talk. It was amazing, crystal clear and full of all kind of interesting noises and sounds, so I decided to turn it into a song. I started by improvising a bass part then I had my drummer Jeff Improvise a drum track, after that I added two guitars one left and one right, kind of talking to each other, again all improvised. I of course did a little fixing and tweaking but 95% of this song was off of the top of my head and came together almost instantly. This was a very wonderful thing for me as I can take months to complete projects, sometimes even years. I have always had the dream of recording a CD all in one take, a full album in a couple of hours maybe this experience will give the confidence to do it.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
