Welcome to Avedore, the symbolic muse and web showcase for the instrumental guitar music of Skip Trantow.

Man has long adored birds (‘Aves’) and their freedom of flight. But remember, in Music there is also flight!  When playing the guitar there is the freedom to soar, swoop, glide, flutter and land. 

With an abundance of well-crafted instruments available and the tone sculpting capabilities of a wide variety of electronics we are truly living in a renaissance age of sonic technology that propels musical flight.  In a nutshell, Avedore aspires to put fingers, strings and technology together to get lift-off.
