For the last few years, friend and musicians alike have been urging me to record a solo album. I kept saying, no one wants to hear a solo free form guitar record; most of them are noisemakers or repetitive or just plain boring.
I held off for quite some time when I started to think about it. My first question to myself was; how do I not make it boring and repetitive?
I decided to record one or two pieces a day. This way I could stay fresh in my playing. So each day, without warming up, I recorded two pieces.
My next question was; should it all be outside playing? Again, that could be boring too. I decided to record one outside piece and one inside tonal piece a day.
There is no written music. This is sheer improvisation. What you hear is the results of three days of recording.
