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.

Hill Billy

A guitar- and piano-led surf/blues stomper. A guitar riff with accompanying drums introduces a steady blues riff, soon joined by some Spongebob Squarepants-style slide guitar, bringing a surf vibe. The riff loops underneath bluesy piano trills. Piano and slide guitar come to the fore with a short electric guitar solo on top. All instruments confidently stride toward a traditional blues ending. Carefree, country, laid-back and cool. Distinctly American, evoking the wild west, both the saloons and the seaside. A laid-back track that brings unmistakeable stateside charm to adverts or on film.

Blackheart Blues, A Sea Shanty

Thoughtful acoustic guitar instrumental. Quiet acoustic guitar intro, freeform strummed section, back to original motif, building in intensity and volume. Pensive, nostalgic at first, becomes more emotional and forceful, would suit a contemplative documentary scene, stirring from thoughtfulness into action.
