Album Notes
"I’ve listen to both Intimate and Guitar Wall at least 15 times each... I absolutely love them. Great work. I have a new fingerstyle “god” and he’s Canadian! 1st I love the sound of the recordings - great job. Natural & clear. 2nd - I love your playing. Wow Lenny / Chet harmonics, Jerry Reed fast stuff, Elegant nylon string work. I’ve got between 200 - 300 fingerstyle guitar CDs, you name them Chet, Lenny, Jerry, Tommy, on down the line, your playing is a good as anyone. Where have you been hiding? 3rd – The songs…many times fingerstyle guitar instrumental CDs are not particularly memorable as songs, more show pieces for technique. Your CD’s are different. The songs on these CD’s are first and foremost great songs, the melodies, harmonic construction, everything" Dan Greenwood

Here's the text for the CD:

This album feels like being in our kitchen: we’ve just had a meal and the guitars come off the wall, I’ll play some of my new guitar pieces, improvise new music, play old favorites, tell some stories and remember our friends and family who aren’t with us.

This recording is all new music and is very much ‘live off the floor’ – if you listen carefully you can hear me tapping my feet, breathing, singing… sometimes the songbirds are out in the yard and sometimes our dear old cat is purring or yowling (you need sharp ears to hear her). Most of this recording is solo guitar though sometimes I play additional parts on other guitars – aside from those songs with multiple guitars the music is me playing one guitar with no overdubs.

1. Corazon – this music has been in my heart for some time – it’s now found a home ~ played with two passes of my 1971 Yamaha classical guitar

2. Old dear – an homage to the elderly who love life, who live it fully and who give to life all the very best they can. They are inspiring! ~ a solo played on my Yamaha classical

3. Catch the train – arriving late sometimes you have to run for it! This knuckle duster is a nod to Lenny Breau, Chet Atkins and the greats who inspired them – it makes me work hard and run fast – two almost identical passes (left and right) with my steel string Dana Bourgeois and one with my 1973 Takamine (center) tuned as a baritone

4. Jacques – dedicated to our dear friend Jacques and his family. To me this harkens to the music of another beloved Jacques: Brel – at one time I had every Brel recording and his melodies and passion are still very fresh for me years after I first heard and performed his music ~ a solo played on my Yamaha classical

5. Charlotte – we were recently blessed with an adorable baby, our first granddaughter, and this song is written for her ~ a solo played on my Dana Bourgeois

6. Sweet Home – I often play this piece in house concerts as my gift to the hosts. It’s written as a theme with variations – many more variations to come ~ a solo played on my Dana Bourgeois

7. Koa wood – the stunning ukulele I bought in Oahu this year is more like a small classical guitar than a ukulele and it has spoken to me from the moment I picked it up. Much more to come from this sweet piece of koa wood ~ played on my Kanile’a ‘Ukulele and Yamaha classical

8. Saucy Joan – some of us have the good fortune to be raised with a sister, I am and, she is sometimes pretty funny and definitely saucy ~ a solo played on my Dana Bourgeois

9. A good man – we lost a great friend to cancer recently and we miss him – this is dedicated to Paul and the family he left behind ~ a solo played on my Dana Bourgeois

10. Sorrows – this started on guitar, became a string orchestra piece and now it’s back on guitar ~ a solo played on my Dana Bourgeois

11. Friends – I have many musical friends in Brasil and this piece is an homage to the incredible sounds and music Brasilian musicians make ~ played on my Yamaha classical (left), Dana Bourgeois (right) and Kanile’a ‘Ukulele (center)
