Dominic's Music Page

My main public musical activity at the moment is playing (somewhat occasionally) with Kindred Folk.

Still writing folks songs and such like occasinally, including Carrying Gin the Strait of Malacca.

Our Song for Marriage Equality

Back in 2004, Maryl and I were married in San Francisco and found ourselves unexpectedly caught up in history.
We'd never recorded a song before, but there's a first time for everything ... The song and lyrics are here.

Old And New Songs on the Dull Topic of Fiscal Responsibility and Social Justice

Here's a terribly rough start to a song about (then) current events in July, 2011. It's called Which Side Are You On?. See what you think.

An old song on a that same long-term theme goes by the scintillating title of "Fiscal Policy." There have been a few requests for the words, so here they are.

Guitar Chords

Many friends have said at different times that they really need a sheet of guitar chords. Not a book of "1000 basic chords", though those exist and are very useful, but a reliable list of a few basic chords in each key that can fit on one or two sheets of paper that you can print out, put in your pocket, take on holiday, write on, lose, print out again, etc.

If this is what you're looking for, try this chord sheet. (I made this years ago on an old Acorn machine, and nowadays I only have a scan of the existing hardcopies, so this is a fairly big file (1.3MB).)

For each of the 12 notes / keys (C, C#, D, Eb, E, F, F#, G, G#, A, Bb, B) this gives the Major, Minor, 7th, Min 7th, 6th, 9th, Maj 7th, and Sus 4th chords. That's more than enough to fake most of the songs you'll ever be asked to play round a campfire.
