This is a tune I wrote for guitar. As with the other music on the site, I arranged and played all the parts.
I first heard this tune done by the great Buddy Emmons on steel guitar with no accompaniment. I started to learn it but somehow lost the file I had downloaded. While looking for it on the internet I discovered that it does have words and is actually a quite old Celtic ballad recorded by at least six groups. I used a combination of the various recordings for a chord progression backing the steel with piano and acoustic guitar.
This is a Song recorded by Skeeter Davis around 1962. I found the chord progression interesting so I thought it would sound good on steel guitar.
Zig Zag is something I composed with a swing style. It only uses a few chords, but they are all typical of 40' swing jazz. Could be a tv/movie theme tune.
Hot Blue is a new tune. I wanted a quiet bluesy tune that has an energy to the chorus.
This is a melody that was taught to me back around 1965. I have never forgotten it, It is stuck in my mind. I was told the title is "She's Gone Forever"
Here's a rockin' piano tune with a New Orleans style left hand boogie part.
Inspired by a Hawiian singer nick named IZ. (real name is Isreal Kamakawiwo'ole. He is a wonderful singer. I am not, so I put it into steel guitar format. I used his almost reggae rhythm for the groove.
