The Acoustic Guitar Album

The Acoustic Guitar album is instrumental studio record number 12 for me. I’m really excited about it. The album was recorded over the last year and features a couple old tunes, a couple classical favourites, several new songs, a tune on the 12 string laud with accompanying Moog, and a solo improvised steel guitar track. I’ve included Last Train Home by Pat Metheny as well. Produced, engineered and mastered by yours truly. The childlike album art says it all, hopefully! I hope to see everyone upstairs at Whistler’s in The McNeil Room, 995 Broadview Ave. July 8th. Doors at 7PM, concert...
