The Twelvemonth Catalog

After taking a much needed break from writing and recording music throughout most of 2015, I began making plans for a third catalog of music during the first few months of 2016. I resolved at the time that this new catalog would be called the Twelvemonth Catalog, and that it would be my third and final catalog of music. By mid spring of 2016 I had all but completed the charts, chord docs, and Excel file for the catalog listing for the first three albums of this new catalog. But then just as I was getting ready to start recording them, I decided instead to return to a project I had begun more than four decades earlier, by developing and writing a third comprehensive manual of music titled Acoustic Guitar Chords. Between June 2016 and early January 2017, while I was writing Acoustic Guitar Chords, I also composed 168  chord progressions. In February and March of 2017, I transformed each of the 168 progressions into song format, creating song charts and chord docs for each one, and in so doing created the 168 song accompaniments of the Progressions Catalog.

It was not until April of 2017, just before I started recording the 14 albums of the Progressions Catalog, that I finished up the preparatory work for and recorded the first three albums of the Twelvemonth Catalog, all three of which consist entirely of cover songs. Legacy is a collection of songs written and performed by artists who have all passed away, and whose music influenced me personally. Mixed Covers VII is a continuation of my penchant for covering songs that I admire and that I believe I can do a credible job of interpreting. En Otras Palabras, a collection of songs in languages other than English (four in Spanish, three in Italian, three in Latin, one in German, and one in Hebrew), is arguably the most classically oriented of the 43 albums of music I have recorded to date, especially with regard to the vocals, many of which are sung in classical style.

The Twelvemonth Catalog is clearly unlike the other catalogs of music on this website in that it is not the result of a continuous and sustained effort, but rather consists of albums created at intervals and in between the pursuit of other projects. By early 2019, between creating two YouTube channels and writing a maritime historical novel (Shantyman), another two albums (Political Rock III and Standards) had been added to the catalog, and work on a sixth album (R76 Shantyman) was well underway. The Shantyman album was then put on hold in favor of concentrating on my politically-themed music (www.politicalrock.com ), updating and developing e-commerce capability for my websites, and creating three more Greatest Hits albums (Blues, Jazz It Up, and Greatest Hits V). Still planned for the Twelvemonth Catalog, aside from completing the Shantyman album, are two more albums of Standards from the Great American Songbook, and two more albums of Christmas music (Noel V and VI).

The links for mp3 excerpts and the various categories of information in the catalog listing below should allow for concentrating on songs that are well suited to your level of skill and your learning needs. The PDF files for the charts and chord docs are stamped on every page with the customer name and order number so as to discourage file sharing and better protect the rights of the copyright holders. For albums of original songs, the charts (CH) and chord docs (cho) are sold by the album only. You can review the full length recordings of the original songs on the Twelvemonth Music YouTube channel. For albums of cover songs, the chart, chord doc, and full length mp3 of the cover recording for individual songs can be purchased for $1  (click on the Twelvemonth cinquefoils () in the album title bars). The mp3s are included free of charge for educational purposes, and except for the 20 cover songs in my Greatest Hits albums (which were all properly licensed), are not intended for commercial release. Please note that the charts and chord docs for songs that have duet or trio guitar arrangements contain both (or all three) of the arrangements. A song title followed by a 12 indicates that the guitar arrangement is played on 12-string guitar. Finally, you can click on an album title directly below to advance directly to the listing for that album. Enjoy the music!
