My latest; a mellow song which could have been genred as Chill Out but it's more rock-ish. I pulled out all of the stops on this song.
I really put my heart into this one. Please enjoy.

Description : Another track in my recent series of Christian music. Done in the style of soft rock; it's a slow song and I gave it a much gentler touch than my normal tracks.
I used to play guitar and sing this song during worship portions of church services from time to time. As the Worship Leader, I tried to fit this one in about every six weeks or so because it is such a good, meaningful song to do. It always moved me to the core.
I am performing all except for drums which I wrote in MIDI.
Description : Genre could also be Rock. I took this old hymn and modernized it. The first step was taking the 3/4 format and changing it to 4/4, then I really got down to work on it. I was a worship leader at a church for years and was also on several worship teams; this was always a personal fave of mine to do. I hope you enjoy it.
Description : I asked Ed (Tumbleweed) to sit in on this blues number with some lead guitar work and as always, he did not disappoint.
This is a fun, laid back blues boogie woogie song.
Description : I've been singing this song around campfires with my acoustic guitar for years and finally sat down and recorded it. This classic has been performed by Sam Cooke (he wrote it), Jimmy Buffet and Cat Stevens; my version is most like Buffet's but after playing it for so long, I've kind of made it my own. The backing vocals during the chorus were inspired by the likes of Shanana and written by yours truly. I'm very happy with how this turned out.
Description : My wife asked me to cover this song, so this goes out to her.
Highly technical guitar work on this and I hope I did this classic justice.
This is off of Clapton's album "Slowhand". Slowhand....hmmm; whatever lol. Seemed pretty fast to me while I was playing it.

Description : Back in the days of olde, dragons rampaged the lands. Only a small handful of men could ever muster up the courage to confront them.
I used an old medieval standard for the music.
Description : Anyone who has ever experienced the freedom of riding a motorbike on the open road, will understand where I am coming from in this song. It's fantastic. I tried to capture the mood of riding in the song and words.
This song has some of my best harmonica and guitar playing to date.
So hop on your bike and come along for a ride on the neon highway.
