Hanbrujetto

“Hanbrujetto” is another original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with more a sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that style.

Shadows of Love

“Shadows of Love” is another original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with more a sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that style. This one, however, may be a bit more sixties than modern.

The Sounds of Silence

“The Sounds of Silence” was written by Paul Simon over a period of several months in 1963 and 1964. The version we know is actually a remix of the acoustic original, overdubbing electric instrumentation. Simon & Garfunkel were not informed of the song’s remix until after its release. It went on to top the charts in 1966.

My version is firmly in my anachronistic surf-rock vein, while trying to maintain some of the gravitas of the original.

Moving On

“Moving On” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with more a sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that style. Another way to describe it might be surf-rock/smooth-jazz fusion. 😉

Lacey’s Theme

A few days ago we lost our wonderful hound mix, Lacey. We adopted her from a shelter less than three years ago — she was 9 years old then. We like to think we gave her a very nice life for her last senior years. I wrote this theme to honor her memory.

You Keep Me Hangin’ On

“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” was composed by Holland–Dozier–Holland. It became a popular Billboard Hot 100 number one hit for The Supremes in late 1966. The rock band Vanilla Fudge covered the song a year later and had a top ten hit with their version.

P.S. I Love You

“P.S. I Love You” was composed principally by Paul McCartney and recorded by the Beatles, with McCartney on lead vocal. It was released on 5 October 1962 as the B-side of their debut single “Love Me Do” and is also included on their 1963 album Please Please Me.

My instrumental version is based on the original arrangement.
