MP3 Doug Adamz - Guitar Solos

Beautiful instrumental pieces for solo, steel string, finger-style guitar.

13 MP3 Songs
FOLK: Fingerstyle, CLASSICAL: Contemporary

GUITAR SOLOS is an hour of solo, instrumental, acoustic guitar music. Its thirteen pieces were composed by Doug Adamz. Listeners have described the overall feeling of GUITAR SOLOS as tranquil and calming. Adamz’ finger style guitar compositions have a simple elegance and rich emotional depth. He’s written for the Joffrey Balley, The Kronos Quartet, and for his own group Light Rain (see CDBaby’s ‘Light Rain’ listings), but this is the first collection of his works for solo guitar.

Doug wrote this about GUITAR SOLOS:

Working on this album really felt like a homecoming to me. Throughout the years of playing many kinds of music (folk-singer, blues singer, country fiddler, belly-dance music composer, songwriter) I’d always come home to relax by playing the guitar for my friends and myself. I’m so happy to have finally recorded an hours worth of these musings.

Listeners have written

Well-written tunes well-played by a lover of the instrument.
Bill Amatneek

I consider Guitar Solos to be simply inspired as the essence of tranquility.
Linda Johnstone

I brought it to work and each person who has entered my office while it was playing has made note of the calm beauty that your music radiates. These are teenage girls and they love it!! Not an easy task to perform.
Sara Wasserman

It is so indescribably sweet and lovely. I was walking around in this state of "Life is so sweet and good!"

Airship, Dreamship
Ship of Sound,

That fateful day
when the heroes rode by the farm
they came with thundering drums,
and cymbals,
hurdy gurdy,
and tambourine.
Their airborn steeds were music itself,
and in their arms they carried
not swords or clubs or guns.
their Excalibur sported strings
and could hum a chord
that would shake the world.

Airship, Dreamship,
Ship of Sound.

The women were mythical angels,
clear voiced,
who sang hosanna to the highest,
keening clearly,
who were wiser than kings
or presidents,
who, for one mad moment,
muzzled the maws of war dogs
with a scrap of poetry
and a strummed guitar.

Airship, Dreamship,
Ship of Sound.

Like legions of pied piper children ,
wide eyed, we followed,
through dazzling skyways,
deadly dark valleys,
junk man’s alleys,
dragging feet through sucking mud,
heads spinning galaxies,
ferris wheel cliff hangers,
perilous rambles,
miraculous rescues,
melted into utter exhaustion,
hollow of hope,
ground down,
lost and found,
‘til you find it there
in your arms again;
the voluptuous wooden box
held to heart,
the plucked strings blur,
light twinkles
in shadowy corners,
harmony is heard
in the heartbeat of a stone
and the order of the universe
is palpable again,
ushered by wordless prayer
from the guitar.

Airship, Dreamship,
Ship of Sound.
