Catskills impromptus

Mike Bartlett and I were in the Catskill Mountains for 10 days, writing a play-with-music together. I’d taken a guitar with me, and thought it might be nice to record some impromptu instrumentals; in my earlier, more technical, guitar-playing days I’d written a lot of solo guitar instrumentals, using extended techniques culled from the work of Michael Hedges (among others), and I’ve recently started thinking about writing more. These four recordings, though, are certainly ‘impromptu’ and unpolished, being the result of a few minutes’ fiddling around late at night, and you’ll certainly hear a lot of extraneous noise in the background.
