Goodbye Brick in the Wall

A segue of Pink Floyd’s “Goodbye Blue Sky” and “Another Brick in the Wall Part II” from their masterpiece album “The Wall”. This started out as a basic arrangement of “Goodbye Blue Sky” that I put together for flute and acoustic guitar and eventually morphed into a more complex segue with “Another Brick in the wall” utilizing octave effects and humming on the flute for the vocal lines and overdriving the flute during the note-for-note cover of David Gilmore’s electric guitar solo at the finale.

Carry On Wayward Son

This thematic Tour de force By Kansas has a bit of everything – intricate guitar parts, soaring flute melodies, tricky unison playing, and sections that demonstrate the use of effects on both instruments.

Black Hole Sun, a tribute to Chris Cornell

A very powerful song arranged as a ballad rather than the heavy version that was played on the radio. This version utilizes a lot of space to set up a dialog between the flute and guitar. The addition of flanger on the flute and rotating speaker effect on the guitar lend to the feeling of loneliness this song evokes.

Jethro Tull’s Living in the Past

You can’t have a flute in the band and not play some Jethro Tull. It just wouldn’t be right. Here’s one of several in our repertoire – our arrangement of “Living in the Past” for electrified flute and acoustic guitar. I use my POG2 for the opening bass line. The rest is just straight guitar. Dawn uses flanger and echo on the flute for the opening theme. The rest is just a lot of breath and attitude to get that Ian Anderson tone.
