Another project I've been working on for quite some time...I think I finished recording all of these tracks last year but I've just now gotten around to mixing them down and getting it out! Enjoy!
Been a while...I've been working on this project over the past couple months and I'm excited to shine some light on it. Flisk! Solo groove music, all improvised, no loops.

MoGuitar recently played at DC's Tavern in Hooksett, NH and a couple people came out to review us, check it out here:

I've been uploading some short, interesting drum beats that I happen upon whilst practicing and grouping them all under the heading ''Beat of the Moment''....here's the latest one, a linear groove:
