HEARTBREAK HURRICANE: This song is from the THORNTON PRICE SELF TITLED CD. It was written by Frank Thornton Copeland (a great singer/songwriter) and myself. Musicians include, Jimmy Mouton on drums and Richard Carpenter on bass. Frank sang all vocals and I played all guitar parts.
COUNTRY BUFFET: This particular song was written as a final exam for a country guitar class. It's a thread of licks strung together to create one solo in the styles of many great country guitar players such as Brent Mason, Brent Mason and Brent Mason.
NOTHIN' BUT THE TAILIGHTS: A great Clint Black song performed by DARKHORSE. I really loved playing with everybody in this band as well. Mike Shamus is singing lead vocals on this one. I thought the telecaster tone was exceptional on this one.
DIXIE BREAKDOWN: A great old bluegrass song as performed by BANKS AND SHANE. I got the idea for the second half of my mandolin solo from the AC/DC song Thunderstruck! Don't tell anyone.
THERE'S YOUR TROUBLE: Another cut as recorded by DARKHORSE. Dee Dee Cooley is singing lead on this piece.
LOSING MY RELIGION: Performed by myself on mandolin and back up vocals and Louie Paretta singing lead and playing guitar. I love Louie's voice! He is truly a great singer/sonwriter.
SYMMETRY: This is another next to impossible song to play written by Alan Barnes. I'm playing nylon string guitar and Derek McCoy is playing steel string acoustic (ala Django) Alan is playing bass as well as programming keys and percussion. Tom Knight is playing drums. Symmetry will be on Alan's upcoming CD "Sketches". It's great!
SWEET HOME ALABAMA: This song was a lot of fun to perform with BANKS AND SHANE. I sing this one (ARGGG!) and get an extended solo at the end! This was recorded "LIVE" in Peoria Illinois.
