Description
I wrote this piece for a music composition class in college. If i recall, the original instrumentation for this assignment was for trumpet, horn, cello, marimba, electric guitar, electric bass, trap set and percussion. a few years after college i was doing some spring cleaning and ran across the score for this piece, so I decided to record an acoustic guitar arrangement of the piece for "posterity". Performance isn't perfect, this was recorded on ADAT, no editing capabilities, no punch ins on this either, just wanted to "get it down" relatively quickly, remember this was all really just a diversion from cleaning!

posterity's gain...

Ray, this is just lovely. Glad you recorded and saved it. This live take captures the feeling and inspiration I'm sure that was evident in the original composition.

Nice diversion!
This is a beautiful recording - delicate without giving up on movement. It floats and grooves very nicely - no guitar histrionics, just great playing and a very enjoyable listen.
Good to see you back at MJ Ray.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Lovely fluid lines. Sounds very good in spite of the recording technology. Late night guitar of the best kind. Some fine playing, too. Thanks, Ray.
