My Sister's Guitar is my first tape. It's got six songs: five older ones, and one brand-new one. If you like pop or folk or anti-folk, you might like it. But don't take my word for it. You can hear almost all the songs in RealAudio format below.
It feels good to finally have it released. Already, it has helped me get gigs.

My Sister's Guitar was mainly recorded using my home computer.
- Sure 058 Microphone
- Sanyo Microphone
- Altech Lansing ACS48 speakers
- Gravis Ultrasond PnP
- SparQ Drive (for offline song storage)
- homebrew Pentium 100/Celeron 450 (overclocked)
Instruments played by me:
- Flute: Armstrong
- Sister's guitar: Anjo
- New guitar: Ovation CS148
- Ukulele: Ventura
- Piano: Heintzman & Co. 1929 O (It's a good piano, but its claims that it's a "grand piano in upright form" are marketing-speak.)
- Keyboard: Concertmate 500 (aka Casio SK-1)
- Pennywhistle: Generation
Piano was tricky, because in order to record it, I had to move my computer upstairs.
Instruments played by others:
- Viola played by my mother, Kay Heuer
- Fake French Horn by Tony Hightower
Mike Audet mastered the songs. He adjusted the frequencies, compressed the volume levels, and made DAT and CD-R master copies.
