If you listen closely the five tones from Close Encounters of the Third Kind are almost in there.
Very pleased with how the key change at 1:30ish, just before the synthflute comes in, worked out
Slower, shorter and synthed up version of Cascade
Solo Spanish guitar
Clunky bluesy picking on a Spanish guitar for the first minute and then it opens up a lot.
Dark sibling to my global smash hit Goldenhill
It's a graptolites thing. Lots of guitars. Lots of effects. Some keys. All the rules broken.
More ambient guitar noodlings.
this came from a guitar thing I came up with. I really messed up the recording, so I should re-record it someday. [more inside]
Its been a while! Inspiration struck, and while I was unconscious this is what it recorded. Hope you enjoy it! [more inside]
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. [more inside]
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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!
Slow instrumental guitar piece performed on classical guitar. Similar in style to my previous pieces Together and Touching
Laid back guitar pop, on a classical guitar - written for a friends wedding.
This is the reaction to my constant enthusiasm about music theory: I strung up my first guitar, a 3/4 size steel-string classical, with a mismatch of electric guitar strings, and tuned it BF#BBBD#. Then just played whatever. It made for an entertaining spring break and a kind of 'endearing' song.
A song mostly inspired by having a stressful job where I deal with lots of nervous/frustrated/severely impolite people, and its effect on me. It's a little rough because the main track is recorded on a boombox with a verrrrry old cassette.
