As the Deer by Martin J. Nystrom is one of my favorite praise and worship songs. I’ve recorded it before, but this time around it seemed to take several months for a half decent take. Anyway, here it is.
Yet another study from the Christopher Parkening Guitar Method, Vol. 1. This one is call “All Through the Night” and can be found on page 76. Between being sick and having a hard time with one of the chords in the middle section, I decided that I was tired of playing and it uploaded one of the better takes. So, as always please for give a couple of mistakes.

Here is something a little different this time. Onward Way was meant to have words and drums and be a mainstream style song. However, over time and a little modification from it’s original form, it stayed a “strummed” instrumental. I finally sat down and recorded it.
Needless to say that I’m behind with my posts again. Here is another study from the Christopher Parkening Classical Guitar Method Vol. 1. My wife and puppy thought that it would be a great time to play fetch in the hallway….hence the jingles and thuds.

“Sounds Like Rain” is the first song I wrote after beginning classical guitar lessons and it’s taken a couple of years to get one decent take of it. So please forgive a few buzzes. It has become a sort of love song to my wife, Catherine, since this was the first song I played for her while we were courting. It’s based on Matthew 5:45. God’s love is so strong that He even sends His rain on the unjust as well as the just.
A re-recording of Greensleeves, also known as ‘What Child is This?’ It is found on page 65 in Christopher Parkening’s Guitar Method, Vol. 1. A Christmas offering posted to YouTube for Christmas 2012.
