The Best of Jake White Guitar Instrumentals
All songs are solo guitar pieces(without over-dubbing), except track eight. Track 12 is played with violinist Amy Benson. Track four is played with bass player Jason White. Track 10 is played on “The Machine”– A double-neck guitar/fretless bass, which I designed and built in my high school wood shop class, nearly 10 years ago.
This CD is a compilation of instrumental guitar pieces. Some of these instrumentals were written nearly 10 years ago; others were written and recorded this year (2002). Several of the songs on the CD were taken from my first CD project (“All strings attached,” 1996) Rather than re-record the songs, I felt that they should remain that way they were first recorded– Although they have their rough edges.”Frustration” is the only song from my first CD that has been re-recorded for this CD. Two of the songs from my first CD appear on this album with different names (Tracks six and eight on this CD). After receiving many requests for this recording, I am thrilled to present this “all instrumental” album. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for listening.
