The American national anthem. This recorded live at the Hadley Library in Hadley, NY.
My proudest performance of this was when a very tall man came up to me afterwards and said "Dude, you made me cry!"
He was about 6'4" and I'm 5'4"... ex-military.
This was performed at a Buddhist KaiKan, (temple) and is a requiem I wrote for world-famous Flamenco dancer Pascual Olivera.

The "Pascual Lives Suite" is all three of the pieces I wrote to commemorate Pascual Olivera, not widely known to Americans but who was an internationally known Flamenco dancer who I knew, who passed away from the big C in 2002. I wrote this to help his wife with her grief.
I play this live at my shows.
Larry Coryell is featured in the middle duet section.

This was my first true solo concert and I was ... how you say ... scared silly.
Sadly, the kid I paid $200.00 to, to record the event forgot to hit "play" on the audio recorder so what we have left is audio from the camera. Sigh.
But it isn't hard to hear that I can play the crap out of a guitar, especially if you stay with it to around the 7 minute mark when I beg the audience's indulgence to show off for a bit. I don't need to play with my teeth or set the guitar on fire, I do it with my hands.
More Beatles craziness. No bass, drums, tracks, about 65 people in the audience. I sold 8 guitar books and 3 art of pencil books. Oh and about 14 cd's.
The applause is real, no trickery!
Larry Coryell (the "Godfather of Fusion") plays the acoustic guitar to the left side of the mix, Tracey sings (and composed the tune) and I play everything else in addition to engineering, assembling and final production.
This is a sample of my work for PBS.
This is done entirely on an Ensoniq ASR-10. I love sequencers and samplers - if you can hear it, you can record it.
There are many examples on the above youtube link.
Me playing an original tune live with a track minus the lead line. It was 48 degrees that day, back in 2004, VERY unusual for Florida ! I STILL ripped it up!
Pay attention @ 1:00 - 1:07 where I play the most ridiculous scale ever, and I made it up on the spot (like all my solos) ... and the very end where I play about 40 notes with one hand ain't too bad neither!
I was in this band as the bassist - while playing all my parts through an octaver on my same Les Paul!
This was at a Vietnam Vets Moving Wall performance in Melbourne, Florida about 2009.
