page is where some of the purely guitar instrumentals that I took the time to record are presented.
These songs are cover tunes written by other famous musicians whom I respect greatly. In hind site I wish I had done more recordings like these as these are for me some of my favorite tributes to the greats.
Cause We Ended As Lovers
A home studio version of Cause We Ended as Lovers. I remembered I had done and found it then digitized it after hearing of the passing of a truely great and inspirational guitarist, Jeff Beck
This was a home studio recording I had made around 1988. Jeff Beck was a great player of the finest top level. He passed in early 2023
An exert of a totally improvised and non-rehursed jam
middle of the Steely Dan song titled Josie.
Here Gregg is doing the keyboards and covering for Bass while
Patrick is on drums and again, I'm on the guitar.
Europa Studio Cover
A home studio version of the Carlos Santana classic 'Europa'. Santana has a unique flowing melodic sound that a great many guitar players such as myself greatly respect and enjoy.
Europa Live Jam
the melodic Santana tune that has a nice jam within.
I place this here because the jam is a very fine example of totally
improvised 'call'. Well into the recording near 5:50 into it I
'reply' to Gregs little licks live for perhaps 30 seconds with
similarly phrased notes. To a musician this is the most fulfiling
of interaction possible is live jams. Totally live
interactive jaming and I treasure this sort of interaction perhaps
above all else in live jams and I suspect this is our only recorded
example of this but agian ... priceless. We have Armando on Bass,
Gregg Dye on 'Stellar' Piano, and Patrick on drums
with myself on guitar. These are my true 'buds' in music. I
should note that Gregg really does not realize it but his 'total
connection' to the ability to hear things then directly translate to
the keys is nothing short of amazoing and I would give all if I could
obtain that level of connection to my instrument
