Call it an ode to my latest treasure, an '07 Gibson Les Paul Classic. Traded in an unwanted guitar to snag this amazing beast, and couldn't be happier with it. Most of my guitars are down tuned from D# to C#, but this one sounds so good in E std, I've left it as is.

This was one of those songs that came to me when I first picked up the guitar and played it acoustically at the music shop. It grew with a life of its own from there.

I haven't written/performed a solo instrumental in ages. Most of my music involves collaborating with others, so it felt good, almost self-indulgent, to make this one happen.

Thanks for listening.

Great tunage. My son just walked by and remarked "who's that?" "its really cool". I agree. I think you should be more self indulgent more often. I really love it when the rythym guitar digs in and drums start pounding away. I did jones for a wee bit more bass :-)

You're making me guitar sick...
for my 1978 Les Paul Custom... I scrimped, worked, saved and finally managed to buy that guitar. It had two blemishes on the neck from the rack plastic/rubber interacting with the finish.

But other than that it was cherry. It cost me $700 back then and it played like no other guitar I've ever owned. The action was perfect and the sustain was amazing. I loved that guitar.

In 1982 my ex-wife and I were broke, starving and she was working a restaurant job. She convinced me to sell it since I wasn't playing much. I agreed. The WORST mistake I ever made. She sold it to some dude for $300 and snorted the bucks up in coke... I never saw a cent of the money and she left me a month later.

It was later that I found out the real value of these guitars... I figured 50% drop leaving the shop. I never considered the possibility it would increase in price. I told a music store owner about it and he shook his head and said, dude... I would have bought it from you for $1500 if it was in even good condition...

The money wasn't the object... it was the loss of the best guitar I've ever owned.

Enjoy yours! They just get better with time. I want another custom but $2500 scares me off these days!

I've never been in a band. I've never gigged. Up until very recently, I've never played live before anyone besides immediate family. And yet, a few years ago, I bought a Mac and started writing and recording. And the bands I've never been in, and... [see more]
