    What a cool forum!!! NEW guy here! Fusion content within!

    Hey forum!! Just joining and saying hello!!!

    I've been a guitarist and composer for over 30 years with my primary focus on jazz and fusion. Rather than go on about all that, tell ME about yourselves and let's get this party started!

    If you're interested in listening to my playing and writing here's a few links to that end:

    My Guitar-Centric Clips

    I've been writing a lot of cinematic music lately, which is featured in the next link:

    My Orchestral Compositions and Film/Production Cues

    There are some live videos of my playing here, as well as some media demo stuff:

    Thanks and a have a great day!!

    Yeah! You go ahead and listen and comment on Scott, Dean.
    That way I won't have to, so I can preserve my self-image of being the electric guitarist at magle.dk.
    I recommend referencing "Return to Forever" and mid-to-late fifties Eric Dolphy.
    I didn't think his guitar tone was atmospheric enough, but you can tell him that.
    Bug him about being not left-handed. It's not his fault, but he sounds righty all the way.
    That's bad if you're trying to be a multi-instrumentalist and play like lefties.
    I'm not typing pick on him, but you can be imposing with your comments.

    Please, teddy, please, as Jimi Hendrix began the liner notes of his first album,
    please, be forewarned. Any contact or association with my new guitar will only bring controversy down on you.
    Even if we got to be total friends online, and even if you and your wife wanted to visit me in my country,
    that would only add more tragedy to your life, your wife breaking your heart even if she doesn't break mine.
    Finding out that everyone only loses their ordinary sanity around me, seeing fame and riches before their eyes,
    has only added their moments of discombobulation and life-shattering impulses to my daily existence.

    And hearing something, especially an acoustic phenomena, that you've never experienced before,
    can make you disappointed with all the already existing music that doesn't have these qualities.
    So you might end up sitting home all alone without even being able to completely enjoy your own music any more.
    I don't want to do that to you. There's too many people over here I want to get in, uh, touch, with.

    It's always a treat when I can visit Magle.dk.

    I was just listening to and watching garynthompson's "Give it Time",
    and as a child of the sixties I'm now questioning the use of the term "fusion".
    Fusion describes a new melding of elements. These elements don't have to be imposing.
    But what was fusion for "Return to Forever", "The Mahavishnu Orchestra", and Miles Davis' "Bitches Brew",
    really can't be heard as fusion in the new millennium.

    I think fusion in the new millennium has to have a global fusion of different cultural musical elements.
    Despite the amount of high tech electronics for amplifying instruments in the studio and onstage,
    seeing an electric keyboard with a small symphony orchestra, as in Corno Dolce's new thread in "Classical Music",
    represents a new fusion for modern listeners.

    I'm trying to listen to your tracks now but I'm on a slow connection in Indonesia and it's my experience the chances are VERY remote I'll be successful to hear them. Yeah, love Return to Forever. Too bad that style died in the 80s at least in America. Still so many players but few listeners except maybe in Japan South America and the U.K. I'll work on typing this in Japanese and Spanish later
