CHERRY SUNSET    MUSIC CD
$20.00
 
 A long difficult three years in the making of this CD. Each of the tracks are inspired and filled with Ray's style of guitar playing. An eerie and tragic subject with moments of elation are put to music that complements the subject matter. While it does contain the theme of the Cherry Coal Mine Disaster in which 259 miners lost their lives, it also is a fine example of the guitar lines and melodies coming forth from this dedicated guitarist.  If there ever is to be a movie made about the Cherry Mine Disaster, these would be great soundtracks. Interesting solo guitar work with some overdubs of vocals and electric guitar!
(Picture on cover is a model of the mine site built by Ray himself for the Cherry Public Library!)

RAY'S FIRST ACOUSTIC RECORDING
freeflightcdcover.jpg
18 yrs old in 1982 Ray is raw and free!

Ok, I'll tell you upfront that this CD was recorded on a two-track, reel to reel, quarter inch, tape machine.  It was done in stereo and I have digitally enhanced it.
      In 1982 when I was 18 some friends said let's record you and so they did.  A total of 15 songs, full length and on 6 and 12 string guitars. At the time Leo Kottke was a heavy influence. So if you want my very earliest stuff here it is. I was 18 yrs old at the time.
 
Freeflight is yours for $13.00 which includes shipping!

THE CHORD CONSTRUCTOR

The Patented Chord Constructor Sliderule
chordconstructor75dpi.jpg
Learn how to build chords and see them work before your eyes

Limited supply-only a few left!

This is a Patented invention #4,748,890
The idea for this device came about when i was trying to show
a student the relationship between various chords such as major
and minor. I showed him how to get those chords simply by moving a
note up or down. I envisioned this device and thought it would
be a great way to show students how chords work.
  I only have a handful of the original prototypes left.
