DUST

These are the master tracks for double-neck electric guitar solo. There are two performances here; one played on a double-neck with two six-string guitars, and the other with a six and twelve-string guitar.

DUST ALTERNATIVES

There are four alternate takes of the double-neck six string and one of the six/twelve. For the double-neck six string, the "ranking" is in descending order. Take Four being best, an on down to Take One. Each has something to offer and displays the improvisation quality of some of the sections. But generally, I feel that this ordering is accurate. The double-neck six/twelve alternate is a pretty good take that is just not quite as good as the Master. Still, I feel that it offers a glimpse of the variability of this music in performance.

Confession To A Stranger

For Solo Double-Neck Elecrtic Guitar, Played with the Touch or Tap Technique, 1998-2000

The movements here are labeled "Red" for Movement I and "Blue" for Movement II. To my mind, the first movement is fast, urgent, and hot. The second strikes me as cooler, dreamy, and more relaxed. When I imagine those moods, I think of these colors.
