A Little Help for Some Friends

What would you do if I sang out of tune ...

                                   - Lennon & McCartney



Well, they don't sing, but still they may need a little help from their friends, fans, and people who still browse for new music and even pay.  Imagine being on the road, the beginning of a month tour, and you're awakened by the hotel manager telling you to move your van quick.  This is what happened this morning to the California Guitar Trio.…

What is a Good Note

I was flipping through Robert Henri's The Art Spirit before I began my guitar practice tonight.  This book has more pieces of paper sticking out of it then any book on art theory that I own. So many great thoughts that apply to any creative process.  Henri had a connection with his muse on all levels that I admire.… Continue

Why I Play Music

I was finally able to sleep in a couple of extra hours today.  The Holiday demands of both my professional and personal life now being met.  Yesterday I woke with an invading microbe looking to live within my body.  So I did slip in some rest yesterday, while still tending to our Christmas celebration.



Today I needed to rest, and I have.  A gentle morning followed by an afternoon nap.  A cold, windy, and snowy Sunday keeping me inside to rest and stay warm.  Earlier, while resting,…

guitar practice tonight. This book has more pieces of paper sticking

out of it then any book on art theory that I own. So many great thoughts

that apply to any creative process. Henri had a connection with his

muse on all levels that I admire. He was more than capable to express

his connection in words. He says: " A line is not good because it is

like a line. A line is good because of it's… Continue

Visualizing Positive Musical Experiences

I came across this post from January Becoming,

which was written when I was suffering from the flu and my mind was

focusing on negative thinking. During this time I picked up my old copy

of the Inner Game of Music and… Continue

Just studying on my own.. I didn't play for about 10 years and then at x-mas I started again.. I did my first open mic in March or so and have been doing them regularly since. flat picked alternative music mostly (coldplay, foo fighters) and also trying to learn some old bowie tunes like "andy warhol" and "kooks" and some Jethro Tull such as "Mother Goose".  Just anything upbeat and fun. singing and playing has been a real challenge..

Hi Patrick, Thanks for the great comment about latest album track 'Seventh Star'. Even more special coming from a superb guitarist like you. Had a listen to some of your songs on your website. What a fantastic sound you get! and wonderful emotive original playing. Within the first few notes of every track I listened to I was immediately taken off - probably to the outskirts of your world. :) Thanks again. Chris.

Hey Patrick, you should join Seagull Spoken Here group ... lots of general Godin chat.  Folks were just discussing the Multiac a couple of days ago.

Thanks, Patrick!

 

Yes, all nine are originals. I also recorded covers of two traditional Irish tunes (Star of the County Down and the Butterfly) as well as a tune by Donal Clancy called "Dog Rock." I'll add those sometime soon.
