New Track: "California Coastline"

This latest track is dedicated to Roger Linn and was inspired by his Adrenalinn guitar effects processor, amp modeler and beat box.  It was recorded direct from the Adrenalinn into Logic Pro via an Akai EIE Pro.  The only instrument used besides Adrenalinn was my Agile Harm 1 Extended Scale Bass VI.  All drums are Adrenalinn.  Thanks for listening!

New Single 'Clay' Featuring: Gold Tone Style 4+ Weissenborn; Meinl Ibo; Seagull Rustic Dreadnought

This single continues the purely-acoustic trend started with 'Ribbons'.  It featurs a Gold Tone Style 4+ weissenborn playing melody, a Seagull Rustic Dreadnought playing harmony and a Meinl Fiberglass Ibo for rhythm.  This track is available for purchase exclusively on Bandcamp at the moment.

The track get's it's name from the Meinl Ibo used as percussion on this track.  The Ibo is a fiberglass variation of a traditional clay drum from Africa called an udu.
