I started playing piano at age 9 and started playing guitar at age 17. My first electric guitar was a 1958 Fender Jazzmaster, which I still have because I have always loved the twangy sound . I have always liked surf guitar instrumentals by the Venturers, Dick Dale, Duane Eddy, Link Wray, and other groups from that era. Besides being a keyboard player and guitar player, I am also a composer so I will be adding some of my original instrumentals to the showcase. On these tracks, I play all of the instruments with my main instruments being keyboards and guitar.

THE SONGS[/color]

SLEEPWALK[/color] This song was originally written and recorded by Santos and Johnny and done by Brian Seltzer and Joe Satriani. I have always liked it so I wanted to try recording it using an open G-tuning

WALK DON'T RUN[/color] This song was originally written by Johnny Smith and recorded by the Ventures. It was one of those songs that seems like everybody knew a riff or two from it but I wanted to play the entire song.

RUMBLE[/color]. This was a classic Link Wray song but I liked the simplicity of the song and the opportunity to use the "Whammy bar".

BITES THE WIENNIE[/color]This is an original song and has no lyrics contrary to the title.

TANGO ON MY MIND[/color] I have always liked "Tangos" and was going through a phase of listening to tangos and I was wondering how it would sound to play one with an electric guitar.

SURFING SOLO[/color]NEW[/color] This song starts out with an electric guitar solo taking place at the first position on the guitar neck followed by a solo played above the 12 fret which builds up with the lead guitars playing in unison a brief respite with an organ solo and finally a crescendo with the two guitars playing in unison with the organ.

WIPEOUT[/color] This song was originally done by the Surfaris and featured some real heavy drums but I am not a drummer and I really
liked the lead guitar riffs so I recorded it with an emphasis on the guitar.

PENTATONIC SURFING[/color]NEW[/color] This is a song that I wrote recently. I had laid down drum tracks,rhythm guitar tracks, and bass guitar tracks for a song and then realized that the lead guitar would not work out the way I thought it would so since the song was written in A minor, I placed my capo on the fifth fret and created this song using an A minor pentatonic scale and incidently it has five verses and comes in just under five minutes. This song has been brought to you by the number 5.
