CDs. When he began exploring alternate tunings on the guitar along with
using altered capos, he found the sound he had been looking for. With
the added expertise of producer, Will Ackerman, engineer Corin Nelsen
and many other talented musical artists, his newest recording, "Gardens
of Hope", became a reality.
