I’ve written a comprehensive music theory book for guitar players. It’s called “Vaideology: Basic Music Theory for Guitar Players” and it contains all the basic, and some very advanced, music theory that can stand as a powerful foundation for a lifetime of understanding the language of music. You can purchase it at

Piano Reductions Vol II

Piano Reductions Vol II continues the tradition of inspired solo piano performances of songs from my catalog. This Volume is performed by the truly amazing virtuoso Miho Arai. She has delicately, and at times tremendously aggressively delivered these performances with focus and passion. Enjoy.

Handpainted Guitars…

When I started doodling with art, I decided to paint a few Jem bodies and the colorful guitar I used in the “Dark Mater” video was one of them. 

I’ve painted 4 guitar bodies so far. Two were Ibanez Strat style guitars I did some years ago for the “Experience Hendrix” tour. 

One of them, “Girly”, is used quite a bit on tour these days. It’s tuned down a whole step so I use it on songs like “Gravity Storm”, and “John the Revelator”.  

The other one is “Cherry Blossoms” and was raffled off on the Story of Light tour for charity. Someone won it for a dollar, but we raised about $15k for the “Make A Noise Foundation”.


Also shown below is the guitar used in the Dark Matter video, and another Jem called  “Be With the Note”.
