Good point. I just flipped the switch so that this sub-forum is publicly view-able.

Thanks Marc. I don't know if she will look but at least she can.

That is very sad news. Guy always impressed with his musicianship and his friendly posts.

Thanks Dick for letting us know.

WOW! I'm just floored to read this! I just can't believe what I'm seeing here! I haven't been on forum in months and was reviewing all the old members jams and could only find Guy's most recent thing on that old Korg unit. Sad news indeed. He was always and will still be one of my favorite members. He was always so kind to me and one of my biggest inspirations to keep playing and recording. I studied quite a few of his compositions.
sad sad sad sad. :( :( :( :( :(
Here's one of our collabs from was back for old times sake. I played my ES135 and also the Fender Jazz. He is the heart of this song. 2 guitrs, drum programming, sound effects, composition are all him. I just added one guitar and one bass track to it. I'll never forget him! He was truly a musical genuis.

I opened up my 4Shared account from WAY back and found an old study I did of one of Guy's tunes. I worked HARD on this piece. As soon as I saw the old song I was like "Yes, GuyD"! He was a strong influence on me. I wish I'd had kept in touch better.
Both the jam track AND the final track w/lead added glued together here. I tried to upload it to SoundClick but it failed miserably like 5x on my desktop and twice on my lappy. Guess it'll hafta reside in it's tomb on 4Shared!
Long Live Guy's memory. I for one, will never forget him!

Now I'm off to try and find his original ver. If I can't find it here it might be on my desktop or external drive.
I found it! The original post from Guy was still in cyberspace! But the link to his version was a dead end! Sad! He was stoked for surfers! That is cool.
Also residing in the original post is a link to a vid I did at the height of the study playing along to Guy's original song! He had THE most unique style.

I always still think about GuyD/guitarfan! :( :shock: He inspired me so much. I remember when he sent me this jam and I played along to it for like a week. Finally hit REC adding my acoustic guitar, electric bass, and a tabla vsti to his amazing guitar playing and brilliant song writing. We ended up w/this mellowest of mellow acoustic jams.
His palette was a large one to draw from.

I know. I think of Guy all the time. It's amazing how the music connects us all. I've never met Guy once in my life but I miss him much.

This is good, Marc. I have one that Guy and I did together. I have to write some lyrics to it and record them. I just don't want to half-ass it though and I'm not really up for a full production. It's a rocker and I just don't feel like I can generate that much energy right now.
