Winter of My Life ( Cajun Jig)

Really like this one.

I wanted to create a Celtic sounding song on which we could dance the beautiful Cajun Jig.

The Cajun Jig has a lot of arm moves but the music usually is a bit harsh. The following video shows the fancy arm moves associated to the Cajun Jig.

Hopefully I can make a video of people dancing the Cajun Jig to my song. Its the only dance I know…lol

Cerebral Projection

This piece brings you inside the man’s brain.

Tried to project my mental activity into the guitar to create a musical picture of my brain… I do get carried away sometimes..lol

Hope you enjoy the piece.

Fanny Power – A very old Irish Harp Piece

Fanny Power is one of my favorite Irish pieces.  Must be 200 years old. Was written for the harp.

Actually is a love song.

Just blows me away that people could write stuff like this hundreds of years ago.
