In 1984, a friend of mine and I recorded this piece in my living room. Michael was an acoustic purist...he had never before played with anyone who played electric instruments...I, of course, was an acoustic impurist...invading every aspect of our music with electricity. This was the first such recording we did together...the tape later bacame known as "First Chance at Strange".

Michael is playing his acoustic Martin and I am on the Strat using an E Bow. I resurected this piece...but didn't alter the original in any way. It is, just as it was recorded that day, transferred from casette tape to digital and converted to MP3.

Michael and I continued to play music for several years, recording dozens of hours of improvisational music live before he returned to the mountains of Vermont.

Hardware: Martin D18, Custom Made Fender Strat with E Bow. Tascam 4 track.

FE...Michael and I played together for only about 3 years, but in that time we recorded numerous hours of improvisational music. Most of the time, just the way this one was recorded, with a microphone hanging from the ceiling in my living room. It was very cool that we were polar opposites when it came to music. I learned more about playing guitar from him than from anyone else in my life, and he learned from me...that plugging things in wasn't all that bad after all. Michael went on to form a 29 piece folk orchestra in the mountains of Vermont. I went...well...on.
