"Call of the East" (Part 2)
"Call of the East" (Part 2) Track number: 2 Year: 2011 Genre: Rock
Instrumental track recorded at home on a Boss BR-600. Yeah, I write and record stuff just for fun quite a bit. There's never an intention of anyone buying it or even caring, I just do it for fun and to try out different composition and arrangement ideas. :-)
"When I'm With You"
"When I'm With You" Year: 2010 Genre: Rock
Another instrumental track recorded at home. Definitely my attempt at saluting Joe Satriani.
"In C" Year: 2011 Genre: Rock
A little rendition of an experimental piece by a guy named Terry Riley that I checked out while I was in music school. This may seem a little out of left field, but it's a thing where you take one melodic motif and continue to buy on it, all while staying in the same key. I had wondered what it would be like to do this on guitar, and this is what I came up with in one sitting. Just a fun experiment, nothing pop music about it!
