Lament I

Over the last couple of years I composed 12 laments for guitar. I recorded them this past summer…

You can listen to them by clicking on the album cover above. The score/tab is available for free at my website.

Side note…last week we got 18 inches of snow where I live in Michigan. That alone makes me want to compose laments. There are still leaves on the trees!! To make matters worse, Facebook reminded me that I had played golf on this day two years ago. I am just hoping to play one more round of golf before 2019 is over. Chances are slim…

Backwards Guitar

I’ve always loved the sound of reversing the sound of the guitar. It has a strong attack and a rather quick decay. When that is reversed it has a certain emotional quality that appeals to me. For this one, I wrote the melody first, rewrote it backwards, played that version and then reversed the audio. It was quite the process.

Etude #1 by Rob Lunn

Etude 1. This performance is a big hot mess but at least it gives you an idea of what it should sound like. I am currently composing 10 etudes. The main reason I am composing these is to help me to become a better guitarist. I am currently working on the 7th and this one (etude 1) is by far the hardest.
