I always love laying down a guitar loop and then soloing over it. Sometimes the most simple ideas–that seem like nothing to start with–can grow into amazing harmonies and textures once you get a few layers going. This piece is part preconceived and part improvised. I came up with the title after the fact, and I think it really captures the mood and essence of the music. I actually like the title so much that I think I might have to write a concept album around it. Take a listen and let me know you think.
Step one for me is always improvising. I try to find the shortest route from my brain to the airwaves and for me, that involves sitting down at the piano and seeing what happens. Hope you enjoy this little improv in Db major.
Precious Air is the first single off my new album, Until the Light. Now available for streaming and download everywhere music is sold online. Check out my Music Store Here to get your copy of the single or the full album.
Today is the day! Until the Light is now available exclusively at my website 🎹🎼🎧 It’s been a long time coming. Many thanks to those who helped me put this thing together and supported me along the way. Here’s to many more years of art and music! Cheers 🤗
Whenever I feel like I’m playing the “same old” over and over, I pick one of my favorite keys and use a different mode. I LOVE g minor, but it has started to feel predictable and stale because I end up falling back on muscle memory and “old” ideas. Nothing like a flat 2nd scale degree to shake things up a bit.
