This CD is a combination of my favorite two musical attributes: the expressive power of classical-style composition & the electric guitar. It contains 4 original pieces & 4 pieces by classical masters (Grieg, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Rossini) whose work I greatly admire.
For the classical pieces, I arranged the melodies & forms to be played on electric guitar. The 4 original pieces were written with the same classical-style forms in mind.
All pieces are instrumental with electric lead guitar providing the melodies. Complete instrumentation involves electric guitar, bass, keyboards, drums & some orchestral accompaniment.
