Most of the music on this site was written on the guitar. Up to this point, nearly all the writing I have done was on the piano or keyboard. In fact very little of it was even suited to guitar.

This is still curious to me in light of the fact that I have been playing guitar many years and my keyboard skills are rudimentary at best. Yet with the advent of home recording on the computer, I delighted in midi composition and wrote a lot of what my wife describes as soundtrack music. You can check out some samples here.

On most of these songs I've written the music and then tried to add lyrics. The music usually flows once I get an idea; the lyrics are much more of a struggle. Sometimes an entire song will seem to appear in my head. I wrote Outta Gas Blues in fifteen minutes, Boka Katorska Bay on the other hand had nonsense words for months. I couldn't find the "word sounds" I wanted. I actually searched the web for something to sound like Boca Bay and found "Boka" Bay in Montenegro. I wrote the song, but knowing nothing about Montenegro, I hope I haven't written something insulting or inappropriate to life there.

Hopefully you will enjoy the songs for whatever reasons appeal to you.
