Thanks for the warm welcome!
I have a confession...admittedly, I'm not a true keyboardist...
I'm a guitarist, who arranges and plays for a living...and I do a lot of sequencing...!
I thought you might be interested in hearing these fusion compositions of mine...
I composed these and did the sequencing and programming for all the other instruments back in 1993-1995, but I began the project of recording guitar parts to them back in January of 2002, and these are the final results...
I'm fortunate to have been in Keyboard magazines Discoveries column, Recording magazine's Reader's tapes, Music and Computers magazine's Spotlight column back in 1996.
This spring, My fusion C.D. will be sold on the Gnarly Geezer web site, label of Allan Holdsworth (www.gnarlygeezer.com
). And in late summer, I join forces with the “Chops From Hell” instructional web site, with the release of an instructional CD-ROM, and several articles (www.chopsfromhell.com
So, here are the tunes from my upcoming C.D.
I don't expect you to listen to all of them, but I've written a short description of each piece, so you can choose...MP3

I really appreciate that some of you have already visited my site, and taken the time to listen...it means a lot...
