This album is stitched together from a number of solo guitar performances over the past year:

Solo set opening for Mongoose at Wardenclyffe, September 2012
How To Play Guitar performance, July 2012
Ad piece for the How To Play Guitar show, June 2012
Haute Magie SXSW day show, March 2013.

It's mostly improvised, but there are interpolations of two pre-written pieces: "Come On Everybody Let's Rock Part Two" by Matt Burnett, Steve Mankenberg, and myself; and "Woodstock" by Joni Mitchell.


released May 14, 2013

Written, performed, produced by Christopher Petkus except as noted.

Thanks also to Mongoose, RIGID, Silas and Amanda of Haute Magie, everyone who played at or came to the shows, Katie Rose Pipkin and Olivia Pepper at Wardenclyffe, and Rebecca for letting me use her loop pedal at Wardenclyffe.
