You can find most of my recorded stuff here, from various projects: Bad Bob Bates – Back Catalogue .  Available to stream or buy/download.  I’ll add to it as I go along, but here’s a nice tune to start you off: Broken Bottle and Broken Bones – Bad Bob Bates

Live first takes – Blank Slate Acoustic Session, 29th July, ’17:

Part 1 The 27 – Bad Bob Bates – a jaunty little song about death… Played on a four string cigar box guitar made by a friend of mine. Tele neck pickup

Part 2 Sausalito – Bad Bob Bates - a place I need to get back to.  Played on a Blue Ridge “vintage style” dreadnought acoustic guitar.

Part 3 Broken Bottle and Broken Bones – Bad Bob Bates - a song about getting ripped off…  Played on my Godin 5th Avenue archtop (P90 pickup in neck).

All of the session in one place… Hope you like my tunes.
