Album Notes
Some of these tunes were written during my time in Nashville and some were written since I moved to Colorado in June 2009. Although I have not had much to say lyrically in the past couple years I have had plenty of musical ideas and wanted to showcase my guitar playing on this album. I also included a few of my championship contest arrangements for all you flatpicking enthusiasts (tracks 4,6 and 8). I played my 1953 Martin D-28 with a Blue Chip TAD 60 flatpick and D'Addario EJ-17 strings exclusively. I have several great Dreadnought guitars and would have liked to showcase all of those but I had limited time and the Martin was just working so well. I need to give a special shout-out to these fine luthiers who's artistry I get to enjoy: Christopher Zambelli Guitars, Gallagher Guitars, Collings Guitars and Conley Guitars. Enjoy!
