I have enjoyed playing songs written by Townes Van Zandt since the first time I heard him. He does not waste a word or chord in his songs. Simple, true, timeless, often bittersweet or downright sad music. Here I play one track with guitar and vocals and a mandolin track.
Here is an Irish tune that lends itself nicely to Guitar. For you musicians out there I used drop D tuning to get the drone sound. It helps “Jackson’s Reel,” sound a bit fuller on the arrangement played here by me on one guitar, one take.
Here is one of the oldest traditional fiddle tunes I have arranged here with harmony guitar parts followed by a mandolin break.
A great song written by Russ Barenberg. Here is me playing Return to Brandywine.
I set up my recording gear yesterday and put down a few tracks. Look out for many more to come. At some point I pretended to play Django Reinhardt classic, Nuages.
