about

This week's improvisation is a bit different from previous weeks. I've added adjustable pitch shifting to the patch input, to extend the guitar's range--particularly on the pedal steel. That's on display here quite a bit, lending a French-horn quality to the first piece, and similar deep tones to others.

There's an elegiac feeling on a lot of these, admittedly, and perhaps people will find some comfort and healing in that.

I hope that you're doing as well as possible. Thank you for listening!
