New Guitar :: New Song

I really want to get in a groove with a fusiony, rock-toned guitar in a jazz trio setting. Coming from a classical background, my guitar concept is such that I think I shouldn’t need a keyboard or rhythm guitar behind me to handle the harmony. I think my vintage instrumentals are a good illustration of this — doing Ventures and Shadows stuff (successfully I hope) without the rhythm guitar one might think is essential to that material.

I am trying to be both original and traditional at the same time — I’d hope it sounds a bit unlike anything you’ve heard while still sounding familiar. Perhaps that is too ambitious a goal.

The song is named “Starfire” after my latest guitar acquisition, and is the guitar used. The influences are many, but certainly Johnny A is a major inspiration for me here.

I actually played the bass and used edited drum loops.

I really am interested in how well you think this works.
