Grayflower

“Grayflower” 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. This one is very much like the Shadows approach.

To a Wild Rose

“To a Wild Rose” is a beautiful composition for solo piano written by American composer Edward MacDowell. (1860 – 1908). When I most recently heard it performed at a music education conference, it really seemed to me that both the chord changes and melody were very much like a slow instrumental. done by the instrumental guitar band, the Shadows.

So here it is, done that way.

March of the Mushrooms

“March of the Mushrooms” is an original instrumental-guitar-rock track in the style of the Shadows. My wife and I have belonged to the Western Pa Mushroom Club for many years. It’s a very interesting hobby. The upside is that there are many incredibly delicious and edible wild mushrooms out there if you know what you are doing. The downside is that there are mushrooms that can kill you if you don’t know what you are doing.

Some of the species shown in the video are choice edibles. Others will either kill you or make you wish they would.

Squaw Run

“Squaw Run” is an original instrumental guitar rock number based on the style of the Shadows. One of the interesting things about the Shadows is the number of “Native American” inspired tracks they recorded. Besides “Apache”, which they premiered, there is also “Geronimo”, “Peace Pipe”, and “Mustang”.

“Squaw Run” is the name of a creek near where I live.
