Acoustic Standards - Volume Two
Acoustic Standards - Volume Two

   As far back as I can remember I've always had a fondness for the popular music of the 20's, 30's and 40's. There was a quality, sophistication and style about that era of songwriting that you seldom hear today. Because so many of these songs were recorded time and time again by countless jazz soloists and vocalists, through the years they became standard repertoire for jazz combos and dance bands... Therefore the term Standards. The interesting chord progressions and memorable melody lines of these songs lend themselves well to solo fingerstyle guitar arrangements. This is my second volume of Standards. It's my favorite music to play on solo guitar. More information on my music and playing schedule can be found online at "www.musicby.com".

   Most of the songs on this recording were made in the Fall of 2004 with a La Patrie "Presentation" classical guitar through 2 Rode NT3 microphones into a DAT recorder. "Stars Fell On Alabama" and "Misty" were recorded in 2002 with an Ovation "Country Artist" nylon string and "Bye Bye Blues" in 2004 with a La Patrie "Etude" classical.
