Hey folks,
I just added a couple of new tunes to the web that I wrote with BIAB. Here's the link:
The names are: Willie's Gone Home & Take A Ride.

Feel free to leave a comment on the soundcloud.

I only had time to listen to one, so I went with "Take A Ride". A cool mix between Santana and Dick Dale. I like it.
My music can be heard at:

Thanks everybody. I am glad you liked them. Dick Dale & Santana. Who said they could not get along together? That was a good catch! I like to spin oddities like that to make the song interesting. If I can find the right style in BIAB I would like to tie in a Bill Kirchen sound with something wacky like Steve Vai.
This idea is not inspired by me. It came from when I saw Les Paul play a duet with Jeff Beck on a TV program one night decades ago.

Thanks again!
