Here are a few of the original compositions that I've written. If you would like to play them, a link to the sheet music (notation & tabs) are available in the video description.

Nothing More to Say

Nothing More to Say is an original instrumental classical & fingerstyle guitar piece based on Job 42:1-6: "Then Job answered the Lord and said, 'I know that You can do all things, And that no purpose of Yours can be thwarted. ‘Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have declared that which I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.” ‘Hear, now, and I will speak; I will ask You, and You instruct me.’ “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear; But now my eye sees You; Therefore I retract, And I repent in dust and ashes.” (NASB) Score & Tabs: https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/21764247

Sounds Like Rain

"Sounds Like Rain" is an instrumental Classical Guitar piece that I wrote and thought that it sounded like rain. It was the first song I wrote after beginning classical guitar lessons. The songs is based on Matthew 5:43-48: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect." (Matthew 5:43-48) Score & Tabs: http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/20410492

Butterfly Dance

Butterfly Dance is an original composition. This is the one original that everyone seems to like. Please forgive one dead note. :) It was one of my first fingerstyle compositions and has that floating dancing feeling of a butterfly sailing through the air.

One of the first compositions for solo guitar. Cascades is based on John 4:13,14: "Jesus said to her, "Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." Sheet Music & Tabs: https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/21569091

Creative Simplicity

Creative Simplicity was the first fingerstyle song I ever wrote back in the 1990's. It was one of the few songs that I actually remembered after putting the guitar down for 11 years.  Here it is finally recorded after all those years. The score and tabs can be found here: http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/21297374
