This is my instrumental version of the classic piece “Dust in the Wind”. I think this was one of the first pieces I attempted to play on the guitar. I remember struggling through the fingerpicking part at a local music store and a nice gentleman saying “good job kid”. Composer Kerry Livgren, a founding member of the American progrock band Kansas, is one of my favorite musicians. On this track I play a variety of string instruments including “Travis picked” steel-string acoustic guitar in standard tuning (left channel) and in Nashville tuning (right channel). The “vocal and backing vocal” melodies are played on my Fender Ultra Telecaster. I performed the solo section with my James Goodall steel-string acoustic guitar (viola part) and my Weber Yellowstone mandolin (violin part).
