The title of this CD is inspired by my approach to the guitar and music. It echoes the kinds of comments I've gotten from other musicians about my playing. I've been told over the years on more than one occasion, "...you paint a picture...", or "...your solo tells a story...", and each time I hear that, I take heart that my musical goal may have been achieved. I contrast those comments with: "...nice lick!...", or "...you have amazing technique!...". For while most players are pleased to know their technique is admired, the more important aspect of one's playing is, do you SAY anything! Do you have a style that is significant and your own? This is what I aspire to. Each time I put together a CD, I think long and hard about making a unique statement, which tunes to include, in what order to present them, the instrumentation, etc... I have always done this, but I hope this CD in particular exemplifies that ideal, and satisfactorily displays the culmination of my recording, composing and playing experience.

I hope for you, the listener, it paints a picture, or tells a story...
