Treading Softly

As some of you might know, it was the blues slide of Elmore James (mainly that which he employed on slower numbers) which introduced me to and made me want to play slide guitar. As much as I’m known as a blues artist, however, I am little known as a slide player outside that genre.

Consequently, I’m offering this ‘home-grown’ collection of soft instrumentals for listening when calmness is needed, such as at the end of day, driving in the midst the traffic stress or just as an escape from the world of noise.

The influence of Ireland has inspired much of this material—not in the traditional musical sense, but through its beauty, such as the hue of the Mourne Mountains on the northern east coast and, in the words of W.B. Yeats, “…I have spread my dreams under your feet; tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”

I am testing the waters and venturing out with some trepidation, hence this collection’s title!
