Solo ideas…a work in progress

Last week I wrote a new blog post introducing my idea to do a solo recording before the end of the year. I’d like to make public some ideas I’ve been working on over the past month and open up the comments for feedback. I’m not sure what direction the solo recording is going to take quite yet but I am open to all possibilities that I can discover.

Here are two versions of the Paul Motian song “It Should’ve Happened a Long Time Ago” that I recorded in the past few weeks.

The first was recorded Sept. 17th and is a reading of the tune on classical guitar…I like the dry nature of the instrument compared to a lot of other interpretations of Motian’s music.

The second was recorded on Sept. 4th and features a wide range of effects and colors offered to the electric guitar. It is also a longer rendition and features more improvisation.

Please share your comments or email me privately…like I said, this is a work in progress.
