Acoustic Guitar Music.
The Best acoustic
instrumental on Garageband
Inspiring...Makes me feel like getting my steel string out and
playing it again. I listened twice, then played along on my
classical and I'm listening now as I review. Love the strong opening
on the E string... sets the mood wonderfully. Superlative playing.
String dynamics are out of
sight love the way you slide into your progressions, pick work never
misses a note. Great dramatic pauses in tempo and chord work. Great
What can I say this is the best acoustic
instrumental I've heard on Garageband. Stunning well done.
P.S. listened 5 times...still listening

What a absolutely stunning piece
Beautiful sonically rich recording and the guitar playing is out of
this world wonderful and the tone
Very good work here. A very nice sentiment is behind this music. I
couldn't agree with you more!!
The LAST WHALE is a total work of art!!!

I’m asked what this music is like… I really
have no answer.
“A distinctive collection of New Age, Folk,
Jazz and Classical Guitar influences”..
makes a good sound bite.
What influenced me the most when writing
this music was Mussorgsky”s “Pictures at an
Exhibition”. Each piece is an acoustic
guitar "story" (see song descriptions on
to Silk Brocade " page).
I wrote these tunes to take you somewhere. I
hope they do.
Once in the studio we tried out all kinds of
ways to expand the sound of a acoustic
guitar. An acoustic center
surrounded by “crazy experiments”. It
was all quite interesting....
