This is an improvised song, just me and my guitar. Sounds like it was recorded in the bathroom in our old house on East Miller Road, in Danby, just south of Ithaca, NY. I sometimes recorded in that bathroom because it had a lot of tile and so was really bright and reflective. I'd usually stick one mic close to the guitar and another in the shower. Appears on my all-improv album liquid planet. Recorded with two mics into a cassette tape deck.
The past year or so I've been in this groove (some might say a rut) where I play in open G a lot, and if not open G then open G minor. This song was made up almost 20 years ago now, and it's in open G minor: D-G-D-G-Bb-D low to high. Another tune to accompany me and my dog and my guitar in the woods! I often encourage other guitarists to try out alternate tunings, and have a page of my favorite alternate tunings. It can get you out of your ruts and into some grooves!
I'll let the improvised lyrics speak for themselves. I'm really feeling it right now on vacation for my fiftieth birthday in Bermuda with the love of my life, Barbara.
Thanks for listening!
