The first piece is called ' Dervish Whirling'. It is a solo acoustic guitar piece in DAGDAD tuning. Here is the art and music. In our next post I will break down some musical passages from this and give you the guitar tab for them along with some related guitar licks.

Art and Music
I recently watched a documentary called 'Tim's Vermeer' that starred a fascinating guy by the name of Tim Jenison. The documentary itself was pretty cool and I'd recommend it. However, what was more interesting than the documentary itself was its main character. Tim Jenison at least as he is portrayed in the documentary came across as a modern day Renaissance man. Need to study Vermeer - learn Dutch. Need a set - build it by hand after learning how to woodwork. Want a lens, grind it yourself, need some 17th century quality paint- learn to mix it. This guy was a tireless learner and experimenter. So because I've been so lazy updating this blog I decided to draw some inspiration from Tim and combine some art and music. I've created some digital art and decided to make music to go along with it.
