Deliberate Monkey is a collection of original songs and instrumentals, best defined as singer/songwriter or folk, and fingerstyle guitar. The songwriting is thoughtful without taking itself too seriously and the mostly acoustic music is sophisticated finger style guitar playing with an occasional touch of jazz (and a little banjo for fun). Eclectic, sincere and fun, this labor of love reflects Bob's joy of music and life. Also, check out Bob's previous CDs On the Other Hand (with brother Rick) and Second Hand Guitar. These are acoustic instrumental CDs of Bob's fine finger-style playing.
