Get this song and listen to others from my album Keppin' It Real In Lo-Fi at http://waltpittsmusic.com/album/keepin-it-real-in-lo-fi - This instrumental is a tribute to my granddaughter, Grace, who was born in the summer of 2012. "Loopy" has two meanings here. One, I am loopy in love with my beautiful grandchild. And two, it's a reference to the Boss RC-30 Loop Station that I use on the track :)

FYI, this song was influenced by the bebop tune "Blues for Alice" by Charlie Parker. I played a Maton Guitar and used a muted palm picking fingerstyle playing technique.

This video shows that actual live take of the song that appears on my album, "Keepin' It Real in Lo-Fi." You can hear more songs and purchase them here http://waltpittsmusic.com/track/loopy-for-grace

Get this song and listen to others from my album Keppin' It Real In Lo-Fi at http://waltpittsmusic.com/album/keepin-it-real-in-lo-fi - "A Cabin by the Sun" is a very personal and special song for me. It's dedicated to the memory of my father-in-law, James H. Lotts (Oct 26, 1928 - Nov 17, 2010). My son, Benjamin Pitts, wrote the lyrics. "For Pa, with Lotts of Love."

I played a Maton Guitar and incorporated fingerstyle techniques, along with a Boss RC-30 "Loop Station" and a chromatic musical structure. Chet Atkins, Pat Metheny, John Coltrane and Art Pepper have been big influences on my playing style. Hopefully you can hear that on this track.

Not every musician's goals are alike, so day-to-day efforts vary from person to person. But in almost any DIY career, none of the five points below will work to your benefit. If you identify with any of them, consider trying to adapt to their opposite – or accept their detrimental effect on your progress.
Some musicians don't choose the DIY life; the DIY life chooses them.

Any useful technology that's successfully adopted by a culture won't be abandoned. Ever. (Except by top-down force).

The technology might be replaced by a better alternative, but society doesn't go backwards.

After books were accepted, few went back to scrolls.

After air conditioning is installed, it's never uninstalled.

Get this song and listen to others from my album Keppin' It Real In Lo-Fi at http://waltpittsmusic.com/album/keepi... - Here's a song that instrumentally sums up the confusion I sometimes feel about using Twitter :) I played a Maton Guitar and used a Boss RC-30 Loop Station to create the sounds on this live recording.

I used fingerstyle and slide guitar techniques, along with jazz and blues instrumental styles. Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel along with Pat Metheny and Joe Pass have been big influences on my playing style. Hope you enjoy the track.

Self-cleaning systems don't careen until they hit a crisis point, because they're designed from the start to be in sync, the process itself avoids the crisis.
My friend Lisa is fascinated by the self-cleaning oven. In principle, it takes care of itself, an ongoing cycle of productivity. One button gets it dirty, then another button cleans it right up. Even better, consider the camera that cleans...

Story
Tagline
Full-time guitarist, singer, mandolin player from Phoenix, Arizona. " Tasty tunes to set the mood at your restaurant or private party"
Introduction
I’m Walt Pitts, a Phoenix, Arizona-based guitarist, singer and mandolin player.

I've been truly blessed to be a full-time, independent musician since 1984. One of the things I pride myself on is being versatile and mobile. That means I can play my instruments acoustically or amplified, as well as stationary on a stage or strolling table to table through a room.

If you like an eclectic, jazzy, melodic mix of musical styles, then you’ll love what I have to offer. From Pat Metheny, Carlos Santana and Jimmy Buffet to The Beatles, Tommy Emmanuel and Chet Atkins ... I love a wide variety of music.

And please get in touch with me to find out how I can enhance the atmosphere at your restaurant, wedding or special event with live music.
