This is one of the songs I've uploaded from my new album 'Advice to the Wayfarer'. It features fingerstyle playing throughout and it's been frequently compared to David Bowie. I've enabled free downloads on the facebook and reverbnation pages.

Hey folks here is a link to my Reverbnation page where I have five original compositions that I think you will enjoy. Thanks for listening.

Friends, I am looking for nice fingerstyl arrangements of "My Way," made famous by Sinatra, and a classic hymn, "In the Garden," preferably in standard tuning. Does anyone have any to share, or is anyone aware of who might have them?

Greetings fingerstyle players.  Check out my new arrangement of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow".  It's the Hawaiian guys version.

@Bill, Thanks! Glad you loved it.

@Ed,

That's a great idea.  Yes, they are programmable. Actually, I don't use the one, they setup for the phone, because it doesn't seem to help much.  I like that idea, maybe I can get a setting tuned so it brings my guitar out of the clutter.

 

Thanks for the advice!!!

Hey, Phill. I wear hearing aids, too. When programming them, I took a guitar into the audiologist's office and we played with a special setting, one of three available, to optimize for the guitar. It also helped with background "clutter noise". Are your aids programmable?

@Cliff,

I know you're right, but I have a bit of a problem hearing-wise.  I need to use my hearing aids, and fm transmitter to actually hear what I'm doing.  In most coffeehouses, they are really loud to me.  All of those grinders, and expresso machines confuse the heck out of me.  See the thing about hearing aids is they amplify everything equally. So, I get lost pretty easily.

But, I suppose you're right, I should just do it, and if it doesn't work out, well, that's OK.
