I've been playing guitar for 50 years...Child ballads, show tunes, classic rock, 70s Prog (my love).
I'm mostly a "color" guitarist, like The Edge, David Gilmour, Joe Satriani. I am unschooled; my playing is very sloppy, and I use a wah extensively but more highly integrated into my playing than others. Color me chromatic, dark, minor key. Love to make snarling lion noises. Down there: 12-54 strings tuned down to D.
Currently working on one major life goal: getting my Fishman Triple Play to trigger the Moog Modular on my computer and put it into my 100 watt Marshall. Keith may have gotten paroled, but somebody has to relieve him properly.

ProphecyPaul Muad'dib looking into the future as the mists of indeterminacy disperse. My most ambitious piece.
In Your Dreams By the Sea
In Your Dreams By the SeaPretentious romantic musings over waves and mint tea. All first takes, and sounds it. I do like the wailing at the very end of the outro.
Dulce NightsBurroughs-like exposition over '70's proggy dark chromatics. About the seven-level underground human/alien base outside Dulce, NM.
GhostsI generated the chord progression by improvising the melody and then harmonizing. Drum pattern from the drummer in Yes.
Willow drum ritual
Willow drum ritualSoundtrack for a friend's fantasy novel. A bog-dwelling cannibal tribe which uses the skins of their victims for drumheads.
CatherineSolo guitar; could not get timing right.
Blade Runner Blues
Blade Runner BluesUsed the chord progression from Vangelis as a test piece. I love glockenspiel.
