Using the theme of healing and quieting the soul as a thread running through the music, it makes for a real connection to the listener.
Here's a little secret: this album was initially released as 2nd Groove. It was not well received unfortunately. So a couple years later I cut four songs from the original album and repackaged it as Forty-Six:Ten. It's actually done better since making this change.
This album is a total breakaway from Fingerstyle guitar. Every few years I get the itch to compose multi-instrument songs. Still, this music maintains the mellow contemplative style people have come to associate me with.
There's not a lot of acoustic guitar here since at the time I was playing a semi-hollow electric. Drums, bass, guitar, piano, synth and flute fill out the instruments on this recording. There's even a Didgeridoo on Weeping Spirit.
