A word about the music. The audio samples in some cases include overdubbing recordings of myself. This creates more flexibility in the range of songs I choose, and a fuller sound. Thus, I am able to play a quiet song solo or an ensemble piece. I am able to fully recreate these sounds live so the audio samples are exactly what I play at a gig.
