    I recently converted one of my Teles into a baritone using a Warmoth conversion neck. I put this song together to send to my brother so he could hear what it sounded like. It's kind of a surf tune with the first half played on a standard Tele, and the second half with the baritone.

    I didn't realise the OP asked for 3 songs,so here's another two!

    Instrumental with a Tele and Cavalier p/ups.



    Some slide action.

    I am also very sorry to hear about your son. However, the first thing that came to mind is one of my favorite oldddd guitarists Django Reinhart. If you aren't familiar he is also missing two fingers and he still defined an era. Just an encouragement for you and your son! Check him out if you don't know him!

    Wait...three songs?! Here's the other two.

    The first one one describes my experience with the Tubbs Fire a couple years ago. The second is just playing around with some of the tracks on my DAW. I play guitar and bass on both of these, plus lap-steel and vocals on Inferno.

    Edit: For some reason, when I added the two older songs below on this post, my song posted on the first page changed so I’m adding it to this post.

    Here’s an instrumental I finished up a couple weeks ago. It was recorded, mixed, and mastered on my Tascam SD 32 Track Digital Studio. I’m playing all the instruments; drums, bass, guitars, and keyboards.



    Here are a couple of my older songs. These were recorded on a Tascam 8 track Digital Studio.

    Here's one that I did about four years ago that came out pretty good.

    This is a band I was in for a long time. Been 2 years since we played together, but we are all in different groups now.







    Guitar work written and performed by me, co-wrote the lyrics with the singer.

    Here are some of mine. I wrote and played all parts except the drum loop on the first one. These are just simple instrumentals done at home.

    Great fun and lots of great music!

    This one's called, "Shot in the Back", inspired by the story of a local young lady who went missing from around these parts.

    Here's another called, "Angry Girl", written about a woman who shall remain nameless,
    http://www.reverbnation.com/open_graph/song/28403282?pwc[branded]=1

    And finally, a song called "Too Much", written on a pretty bad day.
    http://www.reverbnation.com/open_graph/song/28403292?pwc[branded]=1

    All are decidedly amateur, and all great fun to write and produce.

    Yellville is in Arkansas for you folks that are confused. What about Licking, MO? I went to Licking with my girlfriend. She wasn't up for it at first but I made her come. (That is an old joke for those that live anywhere close to that area.)
