Abana alathi fi ssama/Abana in Heaven is a beautiful piece of music by Laila Constantine. In this recording I am playing with my friend, Tsun-Hui Hung. She recorded her part in Hawaii and I recorded my part in Michigan and then combined the two performances. Here are the lyrics…
I am collaborating with a friend from grad school. I have been stuck at home for the last week because of the corona outbreak and it has been fun collaborating with her. Such a beautiful piece and I think she plays so beautifully.
I’ve been a huge fan of Jimi Hendrix since I was in middle school and Purple Haze is one of my favorite songs of his. I decided to finally arrange it for guitar and it wasn’t easy, especially the solo. How do you arrange the solo and still have fingers available to play harmony parts???
Here is my arrangement of the Pat Metheny classic, Letter From Home. This is a piece I have always wanted to arrange and I finally did it. I ended up transposing and dropping it down an octave to make it work. Score/tab is available at Sheet Music Plus (Click on the picture).
