    This was the song that inspired this project. I finally figured out how I wanted to approach making instrumental music in a different light.

    Get your dance groove on and let yourself go! Come on, nobody's watching. I had all the rhythm parts recorded for this song and as I was playing along the melody just came to me. Oh yeah, this was another song where the Unexpected Visitor showed up and delivered!

    Enjoy the groove. I gave you some extra dance time towards the end... Hahaha...

    Hey!

    This song was a direct result from me trying to be a bass player. A great friend of mine sent me a bass to use for this recording and this was one of the first songs that I came up with. I heard a song on the radio ( I don't listen to radio that much anymore) and I heard this slamming drum beat and said to myself, I got to do something like this. The song was time the avenger by the pretenders... Great groove.

    Solo notes:

    I was trying to come up with a solo that wasn't so predictable and up to this point it was not fun. One of my rules while recording these songs was if it's not fun then stop. I stopped and just let things unwind when suddenly the Unexpected Visitor showed up! Can you guess who it was?.... His spirit just hit me like a ton of bricks, I can hear his voice in my head saying Hey! give me a try. I grabbed his guitar (Well, not his exact guitar, but a signature one that goes by the name Frankie) and it was like he took over.... One take solo that happened a few times along this recording..... See if you can find them.... I sat back and listened to it and was totally taken by what was put down.... I don't think I can replicate the solo even though I did it...

    Oh boy, John's lost it...Hahaha...Enjoy....

    This is the only song on the record that I brought back from my archives. It happened when my daughter said to me hey, I was listening to that song you did and it goes like this....Wah wah wah waaah waah. I knew exactly what song she was talking about. I put a lot of work into redoing this one, and really focused on the textures and sounds. Lots of intricate guitar parts going on here, so pay attention, especially towards the end of the song. 

    Get those air guitars out!

    This is a rockin' tune. I was fooling around with the beginning riff using a D major chord and thinking, this just doesn't sound rough enough. I then made the switch to D minor and it all started to come together. The Les Paul was all I needed on this one. It has that gliding through space vibe to it....

    Jump in and take the ride.

    Interesting mood on this song. I was working on another song that didn't make it on this record ( Just too strong of a vocal tune) that had this backwards thing going on. I thought to myself, well maybe I can do something else with the backwards thing...... It initially had a backwards guitar track throughout the entire song but after listening to it I cut most of it out. You only hear it in the beginning and at the end. I used the Luxxtone guitar on this one...

    This was supposed to be the start of what now is the song Bear. That song just became it's own thing but I still wanted to have some type of breathy  introduction. After completing the song Bear I immediately started this song. I was really happy with the spirit that came through, simple and to the point.

    Can you hear the return of Tiki Man...

    Grab that air guitar and let's go!

    This was the last song I recorded for the album. I remember not really knowing how it was going to turn out. It was supposed to have a slow guitar part in the beginning and then jump into the song, but that didn't happen. The song remembering was actually what I was thinking of doing for the beginning but this is what came about.... You can kind of hear how the two flow together....I think, anyway, I really like how it turned out.....For the most part, I'm using my right hand fingers for that popping melody and chord stuff, sort of like Jeff Beck meets Mark Knopfler.

    So much has happened to all of us over the last year and this was a reflection of that. It's also my tribute to one of my biggest influences, Edward Van Halen. The Unexpected Visitor show's up again...... Lot's of different textures happening especially towards the end. This song was actually recorded early on in the project but I felt like it needed to be the last tune. My goal was 10 songs and every time I made a new song I would burn a disc with how many songs I had at the time. This one was always listed as track 10....

    I hope you enjoyed listening.

My new record titled Somebody is finally here. 10 brand new Instrumental songs taking you on a musical journey. I’ve put a lot of time and effort over the last few months into these songs and I’m very excited to share them with you. I had no intentions in making an instrumental record, It's something I always felt intimidated by. I always felt like I had to follow a certain path taken by musicians such as Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Andy Timmons and many other guitar players within that style. As hard as I tried over the years to do that I finally realized that I'm not that kind of player and I just can't play like that. Lately I've been doing some instructional video's out of necessity and I was providing some backing tracks to go along with the video's. I thought to myself, why not put my guitar parts down as well and make them original. One thing led to another and this one backing track just changed my thinking. It was nice to just hear some simple music with not a lot of flash going on. Long story short, that's the approach I starting taking and all of a sudden one song led into another. I wanted to make some music that wasn't so much focused on how to play the guitar but how I can use the guitar to make enjoyable music that could appeal to non guitarists. These songs were created by a certain spirit from a place I can't explain. I'm a believer in the power and spirit of space, earth, sky and the universe surrounding all of us and these songs were written with that spirit channeling through me from that power. I know it sounds strange, but when something happens and you have no idea where it came from you just have to sit back and enjoy the ride, and what an incredible ride it was. This record contains 10 brand new original tracks that I’m very proud of. I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I enjoyed making them.

Let the spirit flow within and enjoy the music with an open mind.

Thank you for all your support.
