These are home multi-tracked recordings -- I play all the parts using combinations of four guitars and a bass: Gibson L-5, Fender Telecaster, Classical nylon from a luthier named Nakade, steel string acoustic from a luthier named Sauve, and a Fender Jazz Bass. Any of my original tunes are freely available for download with the Creative Commons license. If I didn't write the tune, I didn't make it available for download. I also enjoy photography. The link to my photos is at tomhealy.smugmug.com. I work at Duke University.
