Enharmonic

Its been a while! Inspiration struck, and while I was unconscious this is what it recorded. Hope you enjoy it!

Medieval

A slow, two line piece on classical guitar, not really in a medieval style but I wasn't sure what else to call it! Hope everyone who takes the time to listen to it enjoys it.

Every Day

Another laid back instrumental guitar piece. I recorded a lead line for it, actually I probably recorded about 10, but then decided it was nice enough by itself. Hope you all agree and enjoy it!

Melancholy

A laid back, relaxed instrumental nylon string guitar piece, just for something new for me :) Hope its enjoyed by all.

Festivo

An upbeat, fast instrumental guitar piece, inspired by some of the music I've been listening to recently. Hope its enjoyed by all!

Seven Eight

Instrumental guitar piece in 7/8 time signature - took a lot of concentration and I think it shows, not the most expressive piece but its melodic and flows better than I expected. Hope its enjoyed by all!

Together - Electric

Whats that you say? You liked Togther but wonder what it would sound like played on an electric guitar? With chorus and reverb? What a happy coincidence! Wrap your ears around this!

Together - Jazzed

You liked Together - now hear the cover, jazzed up. Short lively instrumental cover of my own work. Vanity at its best.

Cover: One More Time

Acoustic guitar instrumental cover of a very popular song, I won't mention the artist, perhaps a commenter can spill the beans :) Recorded in two parts.

Rough Around the Edges

A fast boppy instrumental guitar piece, recorded in one take and as the title suggests, its a little rough around the edges. A little rocky in sections, would be interesting with distorted electric guitar with bass and drums behind it. Hope everyone enjoys it!

Song in Am

No the most imaginitive title, I wrote this for a friend who was meant to put lyrics onto it and never got around to it - its lengthy at about 4 and a half minutes, the second guitar melody kicks in half way through. Slow, relaxing and as always, hope its enjoyed by all who listen to it.

Cover: The Rose

Instrumental guitar cover of The Rose by Bette Middler. Done in one take, as its recorded with just one guitar line theres been a few compromises with the melody. Also a few dud notes but every time I tried to re record it the cats kept getting in the way! Perfect for Mothers Day which is coming up here in Australia.

Your Shout

Another instrumental guitar piece, lively, fun, and a bit of an exercise in tonicization. Hope everyone enjoys it.

Can I Play: Jazz AKA Silly Jazz

Next in my "Can I Play" Series. I'm not a natural jazz player (as you'll hear) but always wanted to be. I thought I'd give it a go with this piece, and I've titled it "Silly Jazz" as its ... well pretty silly really. Theres a few slipped/buzzed notes in there but you get the drift :)

Winter Morning

Slow, melodic piece I wrote for a friend of mine to give them something to chill out to - similar in style to all my previous pieces (except the electric guitar ones obviously)

Lullaby

Recorded in two parts, its a soothing slow piece. Not overly long or complex. It got its name as when I came up with the first guitar line, someone fell asleep while listening.

Irish Waltz

My one and only piece in 3/4 time - another instrumental guitar piece, this one moves along at a lively speed. I came up with it while visiting Ireland, hence the name.

Mollymook

My family used to take holidays down in Mollymook, and I came up with this one while there. The mood of the piece reflects the mood I was in, its relaxed, slow and languid. Hope it takes you there.

Harsh

Instrumental guitar piece, played on my classical guitar but might be suited to an electric guitar. I wanted to see if I could pull off a rocky sounding piece on a nylon string guitar. As always, hope its enjoyed by all

Cloudy Day

Relaxing, slow but intricate instrumental piece played on my classical guitar. I can play this and just totally zone out for ages. Hope you enjoy zoning out to it.

East of the Middle

Stylistically I'm not sure where this piece sits, the opening scale is a little Middle Eastern (deliberately) but the rest of the piece ... well have a listen and see what you think. I always intended to record a lead guitar over the top (but never got around to doing it...), so its a little repetitive in the middle section.

Hirajoshi

Third in my "Can I Play" series, can I play pseudo Japanese koto sounding music? the opening and closing melody is in the hirajoshi scale, hence the name of the song. Performed in two parts on my classical guitar.

Eleven-Nine

Slow relaxing instrumental guitar piece I recorded some time ago, sounds deceptively easy to play :) One of my longer pieces at nearly 4 minutes.

Hectic

Fast moving piece performed on my classical guitar - I think I'd had too much caffiene when I came up with this one, its short, fast moving, and hectic (as the name suggests).

New Melancholy

Recorded in three parts, on my classical guitar. Theres some dissonance in the melody, its reasonably polyphonic in sections, I was experimenting and I'm not 100% sure it works, but the tune sticks in my head after I've heard it. Hope the dissonance doesn't make too many people wince, and its enjoyed by all.

Lost in the Desert

A lengthy (slightly self indulgent) electric guitar piece, I've performed it live with drums and bass but this is recorded just with guitars. Its quite rocky, especially half way through the piece. Bit of a change of pace from my previous postings, hope everyone likes what they hear. If anyone wants to record some drums for it I'd be happy to hear it!

Can I play flamenco?

Second in the "Can I play" series... I'm not formally trained in flamenco in any way shape or form, and listening to professional flamenco players and then this reveals that I can't play flamenco. But I did want to call it Faux Flamenco so I guess it sits in that style well enough. In fact its really bad - since I use a pick in the first section! In my defence, I don't have nails. It starts out slow but ramps up dramatically later on.

Leaving

Classical guitar instrumental, written while thinking about the loss of a long time friend, which was a bittersweet moment. Its in a major key, with a bit of a melancholy feel to it.

Clowning Around

A little upbeat piece I came up with one day mucking around with some friends - not the greatest recording quality, the microphone I used was actually one of those headsets that I clamped over the guitar. Still its one of my favourites, hope everyone gets into it.

Sin Ti

I went through a phase of naming my pieces in Spanish as I always find it hard to come up with names for instrumental pieces - its still just as trite as in English but it makes me feel better. Anyway this is a slow relaxing instrumental guitar piece.

Cover - Book of Love - Peter Gabriel

This is an instrumental cover of The Book of Love by Peter Gabriel - I think this originally appeared at the end of a movie starring J Lo and Richard Gere called Shall We Dance Recorded for a friends wedding for the bride to walk down the aisle to. Hope its enjoyed by all

Laid Back

Came up with this on a Sunday afternoon, after a long sleep in and a greasy breakfast. Short, instrumental guitar piece like the rest I've posted :)

Beginnings

Another laid back instrumental guitar piece performed on my classical guitar. One of my favourites, though I possible went a little overboard with the compression. Hope its enjoyed by all.

Enigma

Instrumental piece on a classical guitar, recorded with two parts. Kind of slow, relaxing, and was an attempt to make slight harmonic clashes easier on the ear. Don't worry, its not twelve tone serialism or anything!

Bega

I came up with this little ditty when on a road trip to Bega, a country area of New South Wales, Australia. Its a quick, bright instrumental piece, played on my classical guitar.

Slow instrumental guitar piece performed on classical guitar. Similar in style to my previous pieces Together and Touching

Can I Play Blues?

Essentially, I wanted to see if I could do a convincing blues instrumental. Recorded on my strat quite some time ago, don't remember all the settings. Hope its enjoyed by all!
