Royal Oak

Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.

I Gave You the World (Suite)

Blues guitar number. Wailing electric blues guitar, laid back slide guitar, classic blues guitar chord progression, walking bass line and gentle easy-going drums. Electric organ ads extra flavour. Plodding, steady, cool, calm and a bit cocky, self-assured blues rock for an American-style advert for some BBQ meat flavouring or for some Film/TV Americana.

Bed version available with No Lead Guitar.

A Father’s Grip

Thoughtful acoustic guitar folk instrumental. Slow and pensive folky melodic acoustic guitar intro. A pause then a faster section, with finger-picking repetitive folk/blues guitar. A more meandering, explorative section follows into a more upbeat improv-style, rootsy country/folk section. Contemplative at first, then hopeful and positive, yet low-key. Bert Jansch with hints of boogie-woogie, a guitar journey to accompany reflective, traditional scenes on TV/Film/Adverts.

Requiem for L Lawson

Live instrumental acoustic guitar saga. Raw blues/folk acoustic guitar melody, repetitive melodic motifs. Lyrical mid-section to a more tense, frantic part, alternating between drama and calm moments. End section is like something out of a Western film, tense and sparse, with dramatic slide guitar, to a hopeful finger-picking final section. Sombre, dramatic and epic with moments of light, the nature of the live recording adding interesting imperfections. Different sections would suit various Film/TV/Documentary moments, would suit an American road trip or a nature documentary explore the American Wild West.
