Now Offering…

I’m so happy to announce that I am now offering custom bass tracks! For a reasonable price, I can record isolated bass lines for any song and deliver those tracks via wav or aiff. Pricing is available on a per song (or project) basis and turnaround is quick (usually 1-3 days).

Electric or Upright bass.
Any Genre.

Finally (Almost) Settled

I remember a stint where my wife and I moved at least once a year. One year, we moved twice and the second time involved a state change (it was our first move to Atlanta). I don’t remember it being quite as draining as this move has been. Of course, we were sans child and, gulp, younger. While a small human tagalong (I mean, we had to let him come) did slow us a bit, it was mainly the godawful work schedule that (spanned two states) I had to maintain during the transition. I had a lot of fun, sure, just not a lot of sleep. I did, however, get to hang out with a lot of amazing musicians. I played some jazz with my good friend and mentor, Brett Smith (pianist + writer + leadership guru + entrepreneur). We played some standards for the amazing cats out at the G.W. Carver Museum. I was also blessed enough be asked to play for Wiregrass Church’s Walking Wisely Weekend. A two night, high energy, melt faces kind of show for a room full of teenagers. One of those weekends you leave stage feeling exhausted and pumped up all at the same time. It also helped that I was joining musicians like Jacob Patillo, Clint Singleton and Jesse Davidson.

Anytime I wasn’t on stage in Dothan, I was in Atlanta (Thank God for a Prius, that’s all I can say) working and meeting with production teams in local churches. Most of the back and forth is over now and we are settling in to our new home. We are, almost, unpacked.

It’s so great to be back in the Atlanta area and back in the world of freelance. Two things I have missed dearly over the last few years. As things calm down, I look forward to getting my writing routine in place and, hopefully, bringing The Carolina Stomp into the area for some shows!

It’s gonna be a great year! See you around!

InstaGrooves

One of my favorite things I did last year was post a couple quick grooves to my Instagram. I’m hoping to do a few more this year maybe even with some other players involved. Here’s both of the 2014 Instagrooves.

 

Here’s a little #instagroove for you. There’s a longer clip on my FB page ( facebook.com/CHodgesmusic).

And So We Begin…Again

If you have been following me for the last several years or reading my blogs or visiting my websites (my home site or my now retired blog, Shagtastic Voyage), I want to say thank you. If this is your first visit, welcome!

A couple of weeks ago, some malware was implanted onto my sit. Consequently, I had to purge and, basically, re-launch both my blog and main website. While I was at it, I got to thinking… Instead of restoring the whole kit and caboodle from a backup, why not use this opportunity to really re-launch? So, I have, partially out of necessity, removed every post, picture, file, etc. and decided not to restore the content but to start over completely from scratch. I figure why not, right? It’s a new year…Let’s do this!

So, if you are here for the first time or the 100th, thanks for stopping by. Please hang in there while I rebuild. As I do, though, be sure to stop by my Facebook Page, Twitter, or Instagram and check out what’s going on.

It’s going to be a fun process and a great year!

See you soon!
