Jamaican me crazy

Actually me not so crazy, but here's a fun song called "Wakal". I wrote and recorded this at the tender age of 19, when I was on winter break from UW-Madison. It's a li'l funky, a li'l jazzy, and I would describe the meter as 10/8. My drumming is really the most complicated beat I could possibly have mustered at that point. You can hear that I don't own any cymbals--the ride sound is actually the base of a globe stand that I unscrewed and put on a broken hi-hat stand.

Makin' hay

"We're gonna make some love, we're gonna make some hay, we're gonna rise above, we're gonna be okay. We're gonna party." http://www.andrewyonda.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/01-Makin-Hay.mp3

I made this song in twenty minutes during FAWM last year. So please ignore any tuning issues you might hear, and focus on the fun! When I redo this song (this is a demo, you see) I think I'll double the tempo and add an "oontz oontz oontz" kind of beat. Aw yeah!
