I am working on 2 new Cd's to follow up 'Starsigns' from which the music on this site is taken.

The first 'Difficult Trees' will be a further collection of my own compositions for steel and nylon strung guitars.

The second, 'One Man Guitar Orchestra' will be a collection of compositions from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras arranged for every instrument I possess, each track featuring a selection of my ever-expanding collection.

The pieces will include works by Bach, Vivaldi, Satie and Albeniz amongst others.
