In Your Own Sweet Way

My inspiration for transcribing Wes Montgomery’s performance of "In Your Own Sweet Way" by David Brubeck, and playing it in the companion video, grew out of a period of introspection, a time when I fell in love with this music, which also increased my already high regard for Wes Montgomery’s guitar-playing genius. I felt that I had to learn this song, and so I immersed myself in it. At the same time, I’d been experimenting with three music-engraving software tools: Lilypond, Frescobaldi, and Denemo, all of which I used to create the accompanying score’s PDF and MIDI files.

Lesson: In Your Own Sweet Way

This is the talking video to the performance above. Because this is my first official guitar-instruction video, I also explain how this site and my videos differ from others found online in being for all guitarists, not focused on one particular style. I also give pointers for learning and playing the piece and using the download PDFs and other files in the article below.

Amazing Grace

A bluesy rendition of this classic gospel song, from an arrangement by Mark Hanson. Recorded in my home studio late one night with nothing better to do than make some music.

Greensleeves

The video starts with me freezing cold at an outdoor event, but quickly moves indoors to my warm living room, recorded later on. I merged the audio tracks from the two recordings and was pleased that I needed only to raise and lower the track volumes for the sound to mix nicely.


Classical Guitar Strings

This is a how-to video where I explain my way of tying on classical guitar strings. I learned a traditional method that I wanted to set down in a video, so here it is.
