Here's One I Made Earlier
I don't usually post home made tunes, in fact I've only tried it once before. But, given last minute glimmers of gold and green leaves can still be glimpsed before all fades to grey, and this autumn inspired acoustic tune popped into play on my Creative Zen last week, it seems appropriate to give it an airing.
Should you choose to lend an ear, a couple of things to point out on the playing: It's a very rough sketch of an idea, recorded about four years ago using one guitar.
The guitar is tuned to DADGAD. A tuning popularised by Davey Graham
It's a first or second take recording, so prepare for clunkiness in places
Typically I tend to play too fast, so it's a shade speedier than it needs to be
For a full bodied recording, the following would need to be added ; Second guitar (12 string see above), acoustic bass, some sort of soft shuffle rhythm and a lead acoustic for the skippity riff.
