Been very busy here lately and haven’t posted these videos like I’ve wanted too. I’ve still have a couple to get caught up. This one is an origina called Butterfly Dance. This is the one original that everyone seems to like. Please forgive one dead note. The score is available in the store.
Another study from the Christopher Parkening book on page 78. This one is called “Moderato” (which is actually the speed of the piece, not really the name) and it is by Mauro Giuliani. Two timing issues in this one also. I guess I’m in a hurry to finish the book and move on to more interesting pieces….well maybe…enjoy.
Wow! It’s been a while since I posted here. I guess I’ve busier than I thought. Anyway, here is “As the Deer” by Martin J. Nystrom is one of my favorite praise and worship songs. I’ve recorded it before, but this time around it seemed to take several months for a half decent take. Anyway, here it is.
Yet another study from the Christopher Parkening Guitar Method, Vol. 1. This one is call “All Through the Night” and can be found on page 76. Between being sick and having a hard time with one of the chords in the middle section, I decided that I was tired of playing and it uploaded one of the better takes. So, as always please for give a couple of mistakes.
Here is something a little different this time. Onward Way was meant to have words and drums and be a mainstream style song. However, over time and a little modification from it’s original form, it stayed a “strummed” instrumental. I finally sat down and recorded it.
Another study from the Christopher Parkening Classical Guitar Method Vol. 1. My wife and puppy thought that it would be a great time to play fetch in the hallway….hence the jingles and thuds.
“Sounds Like Rain” is the first song I wrote after beginning classical guitar lessons and it’s taken a couple of years to get one decent take of it. So please forgive a few buzzes. It has become a sort of love song to my wife, Catherine, since this was the first song I played for her while we were courting. It’s based on Matthew 5:45. God’s love is so strong that He even sends His rain on the unjust as well as the just.
