PLEASE VISIT MY WEBSITE AND LISTEN TO THE TUNES THERE. The recording quality on the CDBaby website is compromised somewhat. 'Apple Juice' is my first CD release. It includes fourteen original fingerstyle/fingerpicking tunes and three more arrangements of classic fingerpicking tunes. After my many years of fingerstyle and classical guitar background it was time to get some of it on a CD. Recording was done with the aim of maintaining a natural acoustic guitar sound, and this should especially appeal to fellow acoustic guitarists. The tunes range from bluesy ragtime pieces to those of a more ballad like nature. PLEASE ALSO VISIT MY WEBSITE AND LISTEN TO THE TUNES THERE - the playback quality of the music is better. Also be sure to click the links below in the Try This box to check out my more recent CD releases: 'Could It Be' and 'Six String Shuffle' Some notes on a few of the songs on 'Apple Juice' Blanchard Song: The song was meant to highlight the sustain and sweet tone of the Blancard Bristlecone guitar. Hair Ball: a story of a cat (and mouse). Child's Play: my child's antics and guest appearance Berg's Lament: a musical tribute to Nicholas Berg The guitar played on these pieces was either a Mark Blanchard Bristlecone or a Collings C10 Deluxe. The microphones were either Microtech Gefell M300s or Neumann TLM 103s I hope you enjoy it. Rick Please scroll down and check out the reviews below.
