Hi everyone! I have something I want to share with you.

Most of you know my musical journey has been a long one (over forty years and counting). I have now reached a point where I want to โ€œup my gameโ€ creatively.

At the moment I'm working on my next solo guitar album. I also have a new, big and seriously exciting project in the works. To make these and other projects happen, I need your support.

I've recently been introduced to a platform called Patreon. I like the sound of it - somewhat old-fashioned, harkening back to the days of the De Medici family in Florence during the Age of Enlightenment. Back then, artists and composers sought the support of wealthy patrons in order to continue their work.

I think there are some things to like and admire about that old way of supporting the arts.

Today, thanks to the internet and platforms like Patreon, anyone who wants to can become a patron of the arts.

If you'd like to become one of my patrons and support me in achieving my next creative steps, all the information is in the link below.

Thank you for your support!ย

Another tune from my concert in Aberystwyth, Wales last September, โ€œDelayed Trainโ€ started off life as a tune called โ€œTrainโ€ on my 1995 album Metal. The tune uses metal fingerpicks percussively to create an aggressive, metallic texture.

Over ten years later - after appreciating the delay-infused playing of U2โ€™s guitarist The Edge - I revisited โ€œTrainโ€, this time playing along with a digital delay effect to amplify and extend the rhythmic groove. I also added a new section in the middle and some other riffs and refinements.

I hope you enjoy it! Please share it! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿš‚

โ€œDelayed Trainโ€ is on my album In Here Out There, available via the music page at prestonreed.com
