5 Note Samba 2:05

A Bigger Issue 2:17

Lakeshore 2:01

Warm and gently relaxing acoustic guitar melody. Fields of tall, yellow, black-eyed sunflowers sway gently in the warm breeze that is rippling the surface of a nearby lake. 115bpm

Ray Russell
Late Again 1:41

Bustling acoustic guitars drive along with a sense of purpose. Rushing pell-mell, heater-skelter. “I’m late, I’m late for a very important date, no time today hello, goodbye….” 135bpm

Ray Russell
Acoustic Blues 2:11

Lazy ol’ mean acoustic guitar blues groove. Kicking back after a week’s hard graft down in the Mississippi delta. I might have just been dealt a bad hand but life goes on. 75bpm

Yee-Haw 1:14

Tongue in cheek country and western acoustic guitar work out. Leaning over a five bar gate chewing the fat with a neighbour, watching the chickens scratching up the yard. 110bpm

Ray Russell
On The Go 1:38

Fast moving acoustic guitar tune with an old English folk feel. The mist in the valleys of the rolling green hills slowly lifts as the the sun’s rays pull the long shadows back towards them. 180bpm

Empty Roads 1:54

Lazy violin textures bend and slide to provide a sense of detachment and isolation across a never-ending landscape. A shimmering heat haze melts the endless highway stretching out ahead. 74bpm
