          my acoustic guitar

I’ve been writing songs for over thirty years. When I started it was just me and a guitar or piano, but my interest quickly moved into arranging and recording.

This brought me to “overdubbing” different instruments and vocals, and over the years I finally got to the point where my recordings weren’t sounding too shabby.

My first overdubs—unfit for human audition—were done on some salvage-grade gear I cobbled together, but eventually I acquired my trusty 8-track analog reel-to-reel, and really got going recording my songs.

I still have the 8-track and it is still running, on its second belt and its third pinch roller. But I do most of my recording now on my iMac in high resolution digital.

Whatever the technology, it allowed me to make these albums entirely on my own and exactly the way I wanted them to be, at least within my abilities.

And now here they are for you to enjoy: direct from me to you.
