Lead/rhythm guitarist, interested in the heaviest of the heavy and the most melodic of the melodic. I listen to a lot of Scandinavian and European metal. I also listen to a lot of classic rock, classical music, progressive rock and metal, scores (NOT soundtracks...but the ACTUAL music from a movie), bluegrass, and traditional Scottish and Irish music.

Untitled Year: 2005 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
This is the first half of a song I recorded a couple of years ago. The opening riffs were an experiment to see if I could write odd-metered riffs without making them SOUND odd-metered. It bounces between 7/8 and 5/8, but to me it doesn't feel too arhythmic.
Candlemass Rip Year: 2004 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
This was a song that came out a jam session. I'd been listening to Candlemass on the way to practice, and this is what came out. Another unfinished piece, this was co-written with a gent named Jonathan Salas, while were contemplating forming a band called "Funeral Moon."
Groove of the Recenlty Risen
Groove of the Recenlty Risen Year: 2003 Album: Demo Genre: Alternative
A funky mix of guitar, fatty bass, programmed beats, and some shred. It's self-indulgent.
A Mean One
A Mean One Year: 2003 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
A few monster riffs strung together. Some chaos. Odd meters. Bad drum programming. You get the idea.
Hamorleoth Year: 2004 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
This was the piece of music following a spoken word recording I had done. The spoken word bit was a short poem written in a sort of mish-mash Anglo-Saxon. The music is better than the poem; thus...only the music is included here.
Revolution Tango Year: 2002 Album: Demo Genre: Electronic
This a tango, written in 15/16 time.
Until We Say Goodbye
Until We Say Goodbye Year: 2003 Album: Demo Genre: Alternative
The first part of a Satriani cover.
Latinsound Year: 2005 Album: Demo Genre: Alternative
Programmed congas, a liquid bassline, and some swanky Latin chords.
Self Indulgence Year: 2004 Album: Demo Genre: Alternative
A big self-indulgent lead.
Groovehammer, Part 2
Groovehammer, Part 2 Year: 2004 Genre: Metal
The REAL Groovehammer. With vocals and everything...
Via Dolorosa Year: 2003 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
A heavy piece with some latin flavors in the middle.
Seven Sadists in Soma
Seven Sadists in Soma Year: 2004 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
Gymnopedies 1 Year: 2004 Album: Demo
This is a version of Erik Satie's "Gymnopedie I," which is a piano piece. Incidentally, this was the tune I sent to Cradle of Filth as my audition.
Anyway You Want It
Anyway You Want It Year: 2004 Album: Demo Genre: Metal
A seven-string redux of the main riff from Journey's "Anyway You Want It"
Creep in 7
Creep in 7 Year: 2003 Album: Demo Genre: Alternative
A creeping finger-picked piece that I eventually added some electrics over.
