Album Notes
The title track, 'The Peace Within', is a song I've been playing live in various forms. It is built around a theme played on a sampled Hang drum. This is doubled on a tung drum sample. I played sitar and guitar for the melody and solos. Guitars and synth pads provide the background with sampled percussion. It is written using the Khamaj thaat, or Indian scale.

'Mountain Vista' is played in raga Yaman Kalyan. I play a heavily processed electric guitar and the Mohan Veena, a Hindustani slide guitar, for the melody and solos. Synth pads and harmonium provide the background. I went for a Indian style of playing on the guitar using the vibrato arm (aka wang bar), sliding and string bending.

'Raga Bageshri' is a 'self-duet' between 12-string acoustic guitar and sitar. In Hindustani music this is called Jugalbandi, where two or more melodic instruments trade off.

'After the River Runs Through' is dedicated to all those affected by, and particularly those who lost their lives in, the flooding along the Front Range of Colorado in September of 2013. This was written soon afterwards. The melody is played on MIDI guitar with the MIDI output controlling a light flute preset. In the second half the melody is doubled on harmonium. Pads and guitars provide the background with sampled percussion.

'Seva' uses a chord progression that I have been using in various settings for many years. The melody is performed on sitar and Mohan Veena with synth and acoustic guitar accompaniment. The guitar parts are played on acoustic guitar through a Neo-Ventilator pedal. Backing tracks include synth pads, sampled tabla and sampled percussion.
