There is no doubt that love can test and limit one's ability to reason. A wonderful description of this video by a friend of mine says it better than I can: "...its like you are emerging from something very deep but at the end there is a sense of peace or acceptance......really beautiful....." She is so right on. I mean, I'm very angry over it all. The wasted years, the BS I put up with. Being pushed aside for others...sacrificing time and energy...and then left behind to sit and lick my wounds. Well, I'm getting over it and when I finally do I will find exactly what I'm looking for and look back wondering why I spent even one second in self-pity.
A collection of cover tunes. Each is intended as educational only. The purpose is not to copy someone else's work, but in fact to spread the word about these great pieces of music. I don't play them note for note as it is not my style to do so.
A collection of original music, improvised, composed, or maybe even a combination of both. Much of it acoustic, the following songs are my way of expressing what only instrumental music can...emotions without words.
A collection of original, improvised acoustic guitar instrumentals. Each with a different mood, these vignettes will offer you relaxation and thought provoking moments. Each has been created out of the emotional ups and downs of everyday life. I hope you enjoy them. Mark
A collection of improvisations in a Smooth Jazz or Funk style. My favorite mode of musical expression is improvisation. It's a way to check on your internal musical vocabulary. I hope you like my approach to creating melodic lines in this style.
