This tune was written for the giant TOKAY gecko that lived in my room in Bali, while i lived there to study gamelan music. Originally composed it as a song for my bagpipe-fronted rock band BLARVUSTER, this unique arrangement for solo classical guitar is performed by guitarist Brian Dooley, whose own history of bagpipe and rock bands suits him perfectly for this exquisite rendition.
