Music

Here’s a playlist of classical guitar music played by yours truly. (Also, not on the playlist are some original noodles I did on a steel string acoustic guitar.)

Though I play music for people all the time, and I teach people how to play guitar, and I have contributed a tiny bit of music for a soundtrack, I do not call myself a musician. Writing and filmmaking are my vocation, guitar playing is not. But it is something more than an avocation.

If you like what you hear, consider making a donation to help the film out. All amounts welcome.

And here’s a video of me playing Brouwer’s Etude No. 1.

And here are all the posts that contain the above files. Some of these posts have text that relate in some way to the music. Some don’t. Check them out if you have a minute.
