This is one of the nicest selections for the emerging level of classical guitarists. Great for a recital piece, or just for your own enjoyment. The tricky part is playing slowly and in time as the music dictates

This is an arrangement of our National Anthem. I feel proud when I hear it played and see our flag waving in the breeze. Sadness also when individuals and/or organizations behave otherwise. The flag is a symbol apart from transparent human behavior.

HIPSHOT - An Original Tune
When I created this little tune it had a feeling of some pain and sorrow, and happiness. It is a blues idiom. I suppose it has to do with present events. An expression of what you or others feel.
