Winter 1996. A lively lullaby that you can dance to.

Summer 2010. Sometimes it takes a while to say goodbye.

March 2018. A Scottish Air written for the muse. This is what happens when my Celtic influences take over.

5. Passing Through

7. That Was The Time That Was

10. Safe Travels
(tuning: DGDGBD) Amistar resophonic guitar (slide), ebow/drone
June 2018. Producer Raymond Yates asked me to write a tune for this album on the resophonic guitar. So I did: A journey from the Mississippi delta to the Balkans and the edges of New Delhi.

11. Waking Dream

13. Song for Tusya
(tuning: CGCGCD – capo 3) Alvarez baritone guitar
