This ambient guitar texture is great as a bed of sound for your productions. It was done using echoed guitar layers and volume swells. It is in the vein of David Torn, Robert Fripp, and Adrian Belew. This track was produced with a Tyler Studio Elite, Blankenship Deluxe clone, and a Yamaha SPX 90. Guitar,
This retro funk guitar groove brings back those days of yester-year. Remember Chic, Earth Wind & Fire, Wild Cherry, Brothers Johnson, Parliament. Played through a Fender strat and a tweed Peavey Classic 50. Guitar,
This alternative metal track starts off slow and gradually builds into a crescendo. It is in the reminiscent of the Deftones. It has a dark, melancholy feel that slowly feeds into a storm of big guitars, drums and orchestra. One can feel the descent into dispair and misery as the song builds.

Island style reggae brah! Big beat with ukulele and big bass. Hang out, dance, drink and enjoy life. This catchy groove makes you dream about those wild nights in Hawaii. Instrumental, Hawaiian, Hawaii
