Trey Gunn "Scores" - now available


Touch guitar freak and music coach Trey Gunn (King Crimson, TU, KTU, Quodia, Three Below) draws from his performing and recording catalog for this pioneering book. Notated down to the fine details, this collection will open doors for any tapping musician, or for those curious about how this music is constructed.

Thirteen compositions from Trey's catalog, plus a bonus transcriptions of his parts from the King Crimson piece "The ConstruKction of Light." Beautifully spiral bound in a 12"x9" text.

Indiegogo> Trey Gunn score book

I have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to get funds together to produce a score book of my compositions. Full scores with tabs in both 4ths and 5ths versions of the tuning. Including a very special version of King Crimson's "The ConstruKction of Light."


This has been in the back of my mind for many, many years; and now, it is finally coming to birth."

Three Below

A new preforming group that I am honored to be a part of has just begun announcing shows for our fall tour.

Three Below
Michael Manring, Trey Gunn, Alonso Arreola  

Three Below is a collective evolution in sound, style and substance surrounding the electric bass. Anyone familiar with the name Trey Gunn knows his innovation in touch instrument technology. Throughout his twenty-year collaborations with guitar legend Robert Fripp and King Crimson, Gunn has become an uncompromising, relentless risk taker pushing the touch instruments to new heights. Michael Manring, a student of the late bass legend Jaco Pastorius and creator of the Hyperbass – with its unique altered tuning system – is another unparalleled pioneer of the electric bass. Rounding out this masterful trio is Mexican bass virtuoso Alonso Arreola, whose advanced percussive sensibilities solidify this perfect musical trifecta.

Our first USA show will be at Seattle's finest club, The Triple Door, on October 7, 2014. SEATTLE TICKETS 

Second show added: Portland, OR -- Alberta Rose Theater -- October 8, 2014 PORTLAND TICKETS

The Creative Life & Identity -- a conversation with Sonya Lea

My friend Sonya Lea and I regularly get together to tear apart our creative lives and compare notes. She recently recorded a conversation/interview with me about identity and I ended up delving into the particulars of my musical life. Much deeper than I thought. Which is what happens with Sonya. This is part of the work she is pursuing for her book about identity shifts.

Ear Training / Dave Douglas

From a letter I sent out to my coaching clients 2.15.2014

This post references a recommendation I made about a composer's workshop in NYC led by trumpeter Dave Douglas.

- - -

Great freed back from Alec who made it to the second day of Dave Douglas' workshop in NYC. I had a hunch that Dave's vibe would resonate with some of us here. Dave's sense, and practice, of putting intention into a single, simple line goes well beyond his genre and beyond most musicians I know.

I have probably mentioned this before, but I will again.
