"Purple Blue Shade" Guitar Improv from Utter Noncents

It's been awhile since I posted any music here. In an effort to reignite a creative spark I've decided to create a series of short guitar improvisations as part of a larger work. This is the first piece called "Purple Blue Shade" Guitars are mine. Drums are courtesy of Sonoma Wireworks Riffworks Instant Drummer and Video footage is in the public domain.

Tentatively the work is called "so low - the utter noncents maxsheen".
-- state the obvious
-- notto zap funtastic
-- sun chai butterstick
-- coma bullion -- done
-- bitter sweet sweat
-- purple blue shade -- done
-- untitled to the masses

"Purple Blue Shade" was inspired by working on a chord progression to fit a whole tone scale series of guitar licks for my "Lick of the Day" guitar blog. In the end the progression did not suit the guitar licks but I liked it and recorded some improvised playing over it and "Purple Blue Shade" was the result.
