Solo 7-string guitar arrangement of Stromae's mambo/tango/soukous/edm tune Tous les Mêmes
A solo 7-string arrangement of one of my favorite Pinback songs [more inside]
I made a solo 7-string guitar arrangement of the melancholy jangle pop tune Darling by the band Real Estate.
This is an West African kora tune recorded by Toumani Diabate, but this arrangement for guitar by Derek Gripper makes it feel like a tango. I recorded it on my porch in New Orleans. I didn't mean to record the covid ambulance sirens in the background, but I imagine that I'll listen to this later and remember what now was like.
I was playing guitar on the back porch, when I was almost struck by lightning. [more inside]
bluebar wrote a sweet little ditty on guitar, and I doubled him on the wurlitzer
I wrote this instrumental fingerstyle song half a life ago, but I wanted to try out the electric piano and drum set that I bought recently, so I pulled it out of the vault. [more inside]
I added a guitar accompaniment to By The Grace of God's gorgeous a cappella country waltz. [more inside]
More 12-string fingerstyle. This time the tuning is DADDAD. [more inside]
I have no idea why I decided to choose that name half a life ago. It is a 12-string fingerstyle barnburner played with pinky slide. [more inside]
To rock or to pick? That seemed to be struggle that played out on this old cassette that I recently dug up and digitized. This is another 12-string fingerstyle tune in an alternate tuning (Cc Gg Cc gg gc ce). I played around with tuning the double-coursed strings to different notes.
Another fingerstyle tune from the cassette time capsule. This one was recorded on a six-string with my friends backing me up on cello and percussion.
A fingerpicking tune I four-tracked way back when (1990). [more inside]
