That's About It
I recorded the first iteration of this piece back in January, but have since extended it. It has a jazzy feel but and some strong melodic phrasing. It's not perfect by any means, but I recorded it (a version, anyhow; each time I play it it is slightly different) to get the gist of it and to make sure I did not lose it. The first version has already been used as a jingle by Lucy Cole in her "Earsight" Riverside radio show.

On Second Thoughts
This guitar piece starts with an easy to play melodic riff, which to me has the feel of open country and fresh starts. As it progresses it oscillates between this and a more reflective, nostalgic section, echoing that in life that fresh starts are not always what they are envisaged to be - on every journey there are unexpected challenges that need to be overcome and some things may need to be left behind as a consequence of that.

Playing to the Gallery
This jazzy piece is played on steel acoustic guitar. It has a punchy chord riff and has quite a "happy" feel with some unknown time signature (I am tending these days to try to follow the muse and not fit everything into boxes). It complements a picture of the same name "Playing to the Gallery".

Three Two One Awake
This quirky piece (recording played on classical guitar) has a few interesting jazz chords and some nice melodies. I decided to let it be free flowing so I have no idea of time signature. It is meant to accompany a picture of the same name "Three Two One Awake".

Not in My Name
A new composition that is also enjoyable to play. It requires very specific hand and finger positioning for certain slides and to allow certain notes to ring on. Because of that I've been working on refining this one for a year or two.

His Story All Over
Steel Guitar / Synth
An old man in a hotel room. His last look back at your life, alone. It flashes by, again, and again. A series of memories in the blink of an eye. And it is gone. A story told once, and never to be told again.
