I'm Greg Vaughan, owner of Standing Wave Music, a recording studio in Scottsdale, Arizona. Many of current work are instrumental sketches that serve as backing for my videos on V i m e o (just type in gregvaughan). They tend to be somewhat hypnotic and trancy, often with a flavor of world music. Since it is my primary instrument, most songs include acoustic and/or electric guitar. The songs with lyrics are my own compositions, with me on vocals and most of the instruments. All were recorded here at Standing Wave Music. Contact me if you want to use any of them in your project. In the meantime I'm looking for some collaborators for recording, jamming, learning, and possibly playing out on occasion.

WAITING (Instrumental)What started out as a simple repeating chord pattern turned into a surprising collaboration between Greg, Peter Carey (guitar riffs and Rhodes piano), and his son Michael Carey (percussion). Without a traditional structure this song cruises along in in groups of 12 bars instead of eight, taking us on a wave of satisfying simplicity and pleasure. Welcome aboard.
