I made up some of these guitar pieces, and others come from various heroes of mine, notably Big Bill, Gary Davis and Joseph Spence. The album title, ''Ridiculous Instrumentals'', is a funny way of suggesting I''ve been playing a long time, and I''m good enough at it so I don''t have to give it up quite yet. I was inspired by Rev. Davis when I was fifteen, and in the course of my life (to my endless surprise), a few good people have been inspired in turn by my playing.
What I''m proud of is the long term commitment to basic forms, knowledge and history these good people and I share, along with some honed creative impulses. These aren''t the hardest pieces in the world, but they''re hard enough, and if you chew on them for a while, your chops will likely get better. Leastways, they probably won''t get worse...
