Walt's Music Page

Well, this is the first edition of Walt's music page, a page that has probably been a long time comming ... but I decide in the last several months that I should make this page. So what I'm going to do is try to record as much of the music I've made over the years as I can an put it here. I've already learned its harder than it seems to get things right, but that's OK, I'm going to do the best I can with a laptop, a couple of mics and a few instruments. Maybe I'll put a few pics in here too.

Unless otherwise noted the material I put here is original music written, arranged, performed, and produced by me. It is free to anyone who wants to take it an listen to it, but I'll reserve the copyright and ownership of it. As long as its used for listening enjoyment that's fine with me. All other uses are reserved.


The Music

The following are my songs - right now there are only a few, but there are more comming. Each one will have a little story that goes with it.

Come With Me

I wrote this some for my wife Becky who was my girlfriend at the time. The date was 1982, the place Atlanta, Ga. This was a time of learning in our lives as we attended college at Georgia Tech and tried out life on our own. This song still has a deeper meaning to me than any other.

Instruments: Acoustic and lead acoustic: Martin HD-28V, electric lead: Fender Stratocaster, Bass: Fender Precision, Drums: Reason Adapted sequencing software and ReDrum drum machine.
