'Dark Mountain' featured standard guitar tunings. 'Nevada,' features a set of tunings that I have named the 'stolen guitar' tunings. These tunings allow one to play harmony lead lines on certain upper string courses in tandem with rhythm work on the lower string courses. Each song was composed in a variant of a 'stolen guitar' tuning. 'Ballad for a Stolen Guitar' (2008) was the first song composed in this tuning; however, it took longer than anticipated to record the 'Nevada' album that features this song. In addition to the unusual tunings, a 'cut-capo' was employed on the track, 'Stations of the Night.' All tracks recorded August 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lyrical matter reflects personal travel experiences from around the world. CD booklet includes full lyrics.
