“The Easy Ways” by Jim Fusco Album Release Party Concert – Full Video!

Happy 2015, everyone!  For my first post of the year, I’m proud to bring you the full video from my concert celebrating the release of my 2014 album, “The Easy Ways”!  In this concert, I play the album in its entirety.  I made a special mix of the album without the lead vocals and lead guitar.  So, I was able to play alongside that backing track to give the audience a real preview of what the album sounded like!

We had a great turnout and performance went off without a hitch.  If you weren’t able to make it, it’s a great opportunity to watch and listen to the whole album!  And, if you went, I’m sure you’ll want to relive the concert again and again. :-)

The concert, like the album, is split into two sections.  So, make sure to watch both videos.  I’d love to hear any comments about the album and hope everyone enjoys.

“Laughing”
The Goo Goo Dolls

C#                     B                           A             E                   B
I wake up, I’m staring at the clock; my belly hurts and my head is like a rock.
I get up to see what I can see; furthest I got was my black and white TV.
Eyewitness news brought to you at noon; oh my God guess I got up too soon because…

E                   A
Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
Oh I feel like laughing
B         A          E
all because of you

C#                     B                           A       E                     B
I didn’t mean to wear this disguise, but I can’t stand the look in my eyes.
Oh, I didn’t mean to lie; I was doing what I thought was right.
Come on, walk right down the line; you’ll be walking til the end of time because…

E                   A
Oh, I feel like laughing,
Oh, I feel like laughing,
Oh, I feel like laughing,
B         A          E
all because of you.

SOLO (over verse chords)

E                   A
Oh, I feel like laughing,
Oh, I feel like laughing,
Oh, I feel like laughing,
B         A          E
all because of you.

“Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” (Warren Zevon Cover)

My two-session tribute to Warren Zevon rolls on with what is probably my favorite Warren Zevon song of all-time, “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner.” You have to know that I love the song if I’m willing to sing it, mid-song swear and all. I’m not quite certain what it is about this song that I find so appealing; I’ve always found the story mysterious and exciting, and the music fits perfectly with the lyrics. I’ve heard conflicting interpretations of the final line, “Patty Hearst heard the burst of Roland’s thompson gun and bought it.” I thought it meant she was killed, but I’ve heard others read it as her buying the gun at an auction years later.

Regardless of Patty’s fate, this is one of the big check marks on my Laptop Sessions list. You can look forward to many more Zevon tunes in the future! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for an all-new session from Jeff, whose “Greenlight” EP comes out on February 24th at fusco-moore.com/store!


“Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” (Bob Dylan Cover)

After all the Bob Dylan songs I’ve covered, there are still so many essential tracks left to be recorded, and this is one of them. “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door,” originally recorded by Dylan (with Roger McGuinn of the Byrds) for the Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid soundtrack, has been re-recorded so many times that it’s ridiculous. There are countless live versions, cover versions, and yes, even parodies that are available out there.

And, now there’s a Laptop Session of “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”!

This is one of the earliest songs I learned to play on guitar — how can you go wrong with G, D, C and Am? — and it’s one of the first songs I worked out a specific harmonica part for. I haven’t played it in about a year, but it came right back to me. I hope you enjoy it!

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for another great session from Jeff on LaptopSessions.com!
