after many years on the axe I've finally done 2 CDs showing my style.. RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 15 original songs and collabs featuring syntopia, redeyeC, margot du bois, TLT50, big daddy cee and brian mattson.. and RAPSTER GUITARS IT.. 2 with 12 original songs and collabs.. order here direct:

COMMENTS: (thank you most kindly) :-)

"there`s no one I know can do what you do with a piece of music"

"G`Day Brother.... All the best to you! You are definitely a musical mastermind.....with an ingenius sense of melody & crazy mad skills on the guitar!"

"Incredible guitar playing, solos are out of this world! Blows my mind...great production and excellent song. You have taken things to a whole new level...."

------------------------------------------

an inspirational thought mr. jackson: "be an originator NOT an imitator"

FLASHIN is one of my faves.. sounds like metal but the lines are JAZZ..

you'll find smooth jazz and clean guitar and vocals farther down the list..

smooth, RnB and gospel jazz lovers please check out my award winning song "by candle light.." (far down the list)

I've got a new jazz blues ballad for you..



when I wrote out these quirky jazz chords I'd found sounded cool together, I counted the measures and it was 10.. that brought immediate memories of miles'/bill evans' famous "blue in green" which was a 10 measure bluesy jazz ballad.. my changes are totally different but the bluesy feeling is the same.. so I thought of zappa and knew it had to again be me.. outside the box.. that's where i love to be..

INTERVIEW with nicky quick (rapster)
