Go Get It (Mary Mary) Voice Guitar Cover by TDG

Hey, It’s TDG! I just made a new Voice Guitar cover of Mary Mary’s “Go Get It”. See the player below or click the link to listen.

Mary+Mary+Image2What is Voice Guitar? VG is when I make the sound of an electric guitar with my voice. For this song I did the same for the bass guitar sound too. On the VG I did it similar to the way Mary Mary sings it so if you know the lyrics to the song you can sing along to it. This is more like an instrumental track because I only sing on the hook and vocalize a little bit on the bridge. I re-produced the beat by creating the percussion on my computer, playing the keys and organ on my keyboard and recording the rest with my voice. You can hear the scratching I did more at the end of the song but there’s some happening through most of the track. Do you notice it? Anyway, I was having fun with this and decided to share it. I hope you enjoy it and share it with somebody. Thanks for listening be blessed!

TDG on a new tv show! (#1)

License and registration please…

You can now add me to the list of rappers who play a cop on television lol.

This is from when I was on set for a new show called Killer Women. In the world of television, productions call new shows that have never been aired yet a “pilot”. So what happens is when the filming and editing is done, the producers of the show then give the pilot to the ABC network. If ABC likes it, they will air it on television and then you can see me on it. Hopefully they do! This is one of the most recent ones. I’ve been on shows like The Lying Game on ABC Family where I played a waiter and a valet guy and Friday Night Lights on NBC as a football player and a student, mostly noticed in the season finales. I’ve been in movies such as Two For Texas, Man Of The House, and most recently on Parkland produced by Tom Hanks. I’ll keep you updated on what happens next. God bless! – TDG

Beatbox Voice Guitar #1

Hey, I hope the beginning of 2013 is going well for you. January went by fast didn’t it? Some great things have been happening here lately. I’m experimenting with a new way of creating music. Beatbox voice guitar. As a producer, when I produce instrumentals, I tend to beatbox how it sounds in my mind and later play it on drums, piano, guitar, or what ever instruments or sythnesizers the sound requires. So, I figured I should let you see how I create music organically on video. Here is the first of many to come http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLCKwDeNLWHS5MPfINnd4WRoCV3yBV1FKY

If you like it please share it on facebook. If you can think of a popular song that you would like me to cover, tell me in the comments on the video. Thanks and have a blessed day!

12-12-12 Sound Check (3 songs for $1)

Yo, yo, yo, what up?! Lol. I ran across a cool new platform called official.fm where I can share my music and sell it for whatever price I choose. So you that means I got to hook y’all up with somethin’. But what? How about two, nah, THREE of my songs for the price of ONE. I call it the “12-12-12 Soundcheck release”. Since today is 12-12-12 ya know. I like it! If you do too, share it with your peeps. Hmmm… Does anybody say “peeps” anymore? Don’t take any cool points from me. Subscribe to my blog if this is your first time seeing it. I’ll be adding some more new music you won’t want to miss out on. Holla at cha’ later!

This year has gone by sooooo fast!

It seems like 2012 just started and now Christmas time is almost here again. You’ve probably been wondering “where is TDG and when is he coming out with some new music.” Well, I’ve got some good news and bad news. Music is expensive to make, promote and tour on your own, but no complaints here. All I’m saying is it takes a lot, and I mean a lot of patience to create quality music especially with all the stuff I do such as visual art, graphics, production for other artists, videography, helping family, church and… you get the picture. However, (get ready for the good news) I’ve been busy working on some new music, experimenting on new ideas and sounds. Also, I’ve been getting my “acting on” a lil bit more, working on some new television shows for networks like Lifetime and TNT. Add that to my list of a gazillion things. I even drew a few pictures during downtime on set which you can see on instagram, add me at TDGofficial. So yeah, it’s a lot going on behind the scenes of the life of TDG. I’ve even been thinking about a name change, not that Diddy had influence on that lol, but for real. Half of the people I come in contact with have trouble saying “TDG”. Is it like that for you? Gimme some feedback on this in the comments folks. Until next time, keep living for Christ who died and rose to give us life and LIVE IT TO THE FULLEST!

The Best Book (BIBLE Song)


I re-posted this video in place of the original post which had went viral on YouTube a couple of years ago with nearly 200,000 views.

People all over the world are learning how the recite the books of the Bible through this song, now with both videos. There’s an acoustic version I did with SaulPaul playing the guitar so check that one out too. Share it if you find it helpful. Later!

THE CHOICE IS YOURS | Lyrics
Written by TDG & Smiley-D

Smiley-D
It ain’t no love greater than that coming from the maker
I realize I’m not my own cause my life is what He paid for
Used to think it’s bout the paper think it’s bout the fame
Think it’s bout the women I was caught up in the game
I feel your pain homie I was once in your shoes
But was bringing bout my own destruction making stupid moves
So you should make the choice while it’s still available
Tomorrow ain’t promised TDG got something to say to you

TDG
You’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places
Hustling on the grind wasting time with the wrong faces
You think it’s about time that you make a change
But how you gonna change if you keep doing the same thing
There’s gotta be a better way that’s what I hear you say
Well there is better way, and it can start today
Ask Christ to be the change that you wanna be
Ask Christ to come into your heart and you will see
He can make it right when everything has gone wrong
Wipe away the dirt of your past and give you a new song
He can give you everything that you need
All you have to do is trust and believe
Then walk it out, and He will walk with you
If you fall off and leave He will never leave you
So run back every time you fall
He’ll be waiting on you with open arms

HOOK
The choice is yours
Choose the Lord right now because this time might be your last
The choice is yours
All He has is love for you. Why don’t you love Him back?
The choice is yours
Ain’t no love greater, He can love you better then you love yourself
The choice is yours
Ain’t no love greater, He can love you better then you love yourself

Smiley-D
It ain’t a gun to your head, crime is what you choose to do
A hard head makes a soft tail and it’s foolish too
Lord abusing you is something I refuse to do
Rather be saved and alone than hang with the loser crew
Ain’t got time to waste and head down the wrong direction
Copyrighted by Jesus kinda like some song protection
Try to help em they say worry about your own confession
But I know sex, money, and drugs is a known obsession
In this world today they wonder what this world can pay
Ain’t nothing worth your soul homie but they still serving yay
For the love of money quick to catch a murder case
Pull a gun on another for something they heard em say
Losing your dome for not using your chrome
In a funeral home off of moving them stones
It’s a way out homie, just quit acting ignorant
Accept Jesus Christ in your heart and ask Him to forgive

HOOK
Choose the Lord right now because this time might be your last
The choice is yours
All He has is love for you. Why don’t you love Him back?
The choice is yours
Ain’t no love greater, He can love you better then you love yourself
The choice is yours
Ain’t no love greater, He can love you better then you love yourself

Hey, this is TDG, the one wearing the white cap on the video above. Wanna know how “The Choice Is Yours” by TDG & Smiley-D was created? I’ll tell ya, keep reading. Smiley-D and I met on the internet and after recognizing the common goals we have it was quickly agreed that we should collab. With Smiley-D in Oklahoma, and me in Texas, I knew we had to make the most of today’s technology. So I grabbed my acoustic guitar, dropped a beat, produced this track and we wrote some lyrics to it. Not lyrics just sayin’ anything, but something that would help someone change their ways for the better. Why did “Man In The Mirror” just pop in my head? Eeeeeee Heeeee, lol! But on the real, we sent files back and forward and once we had a complete song we knew people needed to hear this. So we planned the video shoot. I made my way up to OKC and shot the first half of the video shoot with Smiley-D. We had a few adventures too. Day one, there was an earthquake! While eating dinner at the table all of a sudden everything started rumbling and shaking. I busted out praying right there! Some of the people in the room thought for a second about hiding under the table, but it was made of glass. Forget that idea! So we all sat there and waited it out, while I was still praying out loud. The earthquake stopped and we laughed about our funny reactions to it afterward. Nothing was damaged where we were. A part of a highway about an hour away was damaged though. Another adventure on day two of the shoot was we were standing near the edge of a building with no railings to get the Oklahoma City skyline in the background. One slip and that would have been it! See what we go through for you, lol? We made it though and got the shots done so I headed back to Austin to finish the second half of video shoot with The Mack Boyz (the dude that got jumped and the other dude that got stabbed in the video, they’re actually brothers that rap together). I edited the video, graphicson Amazon. As I continued to communicate with Smiley-D, we decided to give this track to the public for free because we know the message in the song is needed. There is also an acoustic version available on amazon. We’re cool with either choice you make, at the least please share the song or video on facebook, tweet it, or share anywhere so it will help someone. “The Choice Is Yours.”

A lot of people have been asking if we are a group but both of us are solo artists. If you would like to know a little more about us, here are our bio’s, TDG & Smiley-D. More of my music like my album Live It To The Fullest and the The Best Book (BIBLE Song) can be found below. God bless.

Hey World – official video


“Hey World! It’s a new day, keep your head up it will okay!” This hurting world needs to see there is hope in Christ. I know I need hope sometimes and it’s better to encourage yourself and help the people the around you instead of have a pity party, get depressed, and be of help to no one. This is for those who think there is no way out of bad situations. Always remember, it’s only temporary. Trouble doesn’t last always. Today is a new day! Yesterday is in the past. It’s time to shape a better tomorrow with good choices we make today. None of us are perfect, that’s why we gotta allow God to guide us. Whatever you’re dealing with, He can take care of it. Take it to Him in prayer and leave it there.

The BIBLE Song – acoustic version


The opportunity came to visit my bro SaulPaul for a few gigs in Atlanta, GA. Afterwards, being the visionary he is and the work-a-holic I am, we decided it was time for another collaboration. We had done the single “Be Easy” from his debut album, ‘Remember The Name’ nearly a decade ago, and between that time and now, toured together thoughout the states as a duo and with the acoustic rap group Psalm Fresh. Now this time we wanted to make a video, with just us, chillaxin,’ with his acoustic guitar and my voice. The original video of “The BIBLE song (sing and rap)” had already gone viral, so it only made sense to do an acoustic version. It’s up on itunes right now and so far people are lovin’ this one too.
