Happily a Soloist 

Hi there, this is Mike and I am Grey Ballet

Quite simply an old guy that plays a number of instruments, isn't too tech- illiterate and a prolific composer. Primarily guitar.

I am also celebrating more than 50 years of playing guitar. 

I've written songs from fingerstyle instrumentals to effects-laden electric tones . You can also bask in some beautiful instrumental soundscapes and atmospheres. If you're looking for some slick production, NOT HERE. Only a good dose of  “pure spontaneous invention”. Old school. Keeping it real. 

On learning,  I have content to share some of the techniques, concepts and ideas behind my work. Things like harmonics and chord structures. My past 40+ years as a guitar instructor, will certainly be of benefit to you. These are freebies for those who are interested in learning some of the techniques. Right now, everything is raw and a work in progress. But then again, that is the whole idea behind Grey Ballet. 

Enjoy
