Out of Control
Out of Control Year: 2012 Album: Unreleased Genre: Other
An electric improvisation over "Out of Control", a song written by my good friend Fred Brooks.
An Improvisation Genre: Acoustic
Search for your own musical voice. That was advice I read in an interview with Santana years ago. There's a little bit of that in this improvisation. I like finding chord voicings that let chord tones mingle and ring openly with notes in passing, notes sometimes slightly more discordant.
EarthToNEAn original composition for solo guitar and small stream. You can hear the small stream by checking out the video link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqwDj4vhnJo Thanks for listening.
