Can't Get Her Offa My Mind (by Kit Garoutte & Scott Casey)

This song is one I wrote with my old songwriting partner and great pal Scott Casey some time ago. It has been in the "vault" and I recently broke it out and rediscovered the magic by doing a little different version for my solo thing.



 

Beautiful Girl (by Kit Garoutte)

See that Beautiful Girl from across a room, or on a beach, on a crowded sidewalk, or on a beautiful mountain pass? It could be a golden opportunity... now what to do about it.



Old Habits (Die Hard) (by Kit Garoutte)

My life, and this song, is all about keeping the faith that it is worth all the sacrifices and dedication it takes to keep going and striving to live the dream. It's also about the very human pros and cons of habit. This cut is from my "Every Kind Of Life" album.



Tears In Heaven

This is an impromptu recording I did after playing it for the family and friends at the wake of a young boy. I tried to reproduce what I had done at the church as faithfully as possible as a tribute to the boy and in the hope of providing some love and comfort to all who were suffering as a result of his tragic passing.

Rainbow's Cadillac (by Bruce Hornsby)

This song, according to Bruce, is either about a barnstorming basketball player or preacher. I worked it out in open D tuning to allow me to do cool things with it playing solo. This performance was on the Terrace at Maryhill Winery.


Mr. Briefcase (by Lee Ritenour)

This was originally recorded by Lee as  a vocal tune with Eric Tagg singing vocals that I worked out an instrumental fingerstyle arrangement for and it's been a favorite in my repertoire for some time now. This video clip is from a show at the famous Jimmy Mak's in Portland while it was still going strong.


Mercy, Mercy, Mercy (by Joe Zawinul)

This is by far my most popular video clip on YouTube. It's a groove!
