So, I tend to do these solo studies when I have an impro gig coming up, because I really hate doing the same old shit all the time and these studies are an attempt to find something new to experiment with during the gig. This is going to be a set of two-minute impros on the 12-string neck, mostly unprepared, no effects, etc.
Before I started playing with other people again, back in 2007 or something, I was doing a lot of solo multitrack recordings, basically kind of playing with an idea for 2 or 3 minutes, then recording another take without hearing the first one, and then a third without hearing the first two, etc. Then I would nudge some things around in Sound Forge to synchronize events that were interestingly nearby each other. Anyway yes here are three of those kinds of things, probably recorded in 2006.
