Piano Exercise (Theme 104):
Two versions of this verse about a thrush at the Spring above the Ranch, circa 2007.
THRUSH SONG lyrics
This one is for chasing butterflies. I thought this must have been what I looked like at age four or five, trying to catch butterflies with my hands.
This is the first instrumental composition I ever wrote, in 1962, with the help of Bruce Markkula, who studied guitar with Johnny Smith.
This one is the first composition I ever wrote on GarageBand, in about 2008. I refer to it as “My Adagio,” since it has no other name.
