Relax to some original guitar music from my friend and bandmate, Ryan Hoots!
This is the first song I'm releasing from my new instrumental album.

Happy Appreciate a Dragon Day! I'm not ashamed to say, I've got 26 of 'em to appreciate.

So, apparently, this is my new place to update, as I'm signing off of Facebook very soon. Add me to your circles to keep in touch!

Meh, I could stand to update my Google+ more often.
