Here are a few of the original classical and fingerstyle guitar compositions that I’ve written. If you would like to play them, a link to the sheet music (notation & tabs) follows the video description.
Nothing More to Say | Guitar Composition
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
Butterfly Dance | Guitar Compositions
Butterfly Dance is an original composition. This is the one original that everyone seems to like. It was one of my first fingerstyle compositions and has that floating dancing feeling of a butterfly sailing through the air. The piece is based on Genesis 1:20-25:
“Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the face of the expanse of the heavens.” And God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
Then God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth.” And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so. God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing of the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.” | Purchase score & tabs in the shop.
Sounds Like Rain | Guitar Compositions
“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 piece 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.” | Purchase score & tabs in the shop.
Creative Simplicity | Guitar Compositions
Creative Simplicity was the first fingerstyle song I ever wrote. Here it is finally recorded after all those years. A beginner/early intermediate arpeggio study for classical and fingerstyle guitar. This piece is based on Psalm 139:14 which reads, “I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.” | Purchase score & tabs in the shop.
