music is life, music is breath, music is us


Derek Kortepeter-“Shoreline”

I was feeling down for a multitude of reasons today, and I just had to play guitar (and actually write something on it). I sat down with a sketch in my mind of what I wanted the sound to be, and just let my imagination rule. This is one take, all chords (a first for my compositions posted on Youtube). I had this picture in my head that just spoke to me, giving me the inspiration to write something that evokes the ocean (I am a SoCal boy after all), and that is what came out in my playing. Everything came together in a way that instantly made my mind serene, and honestly, happier.
