Default "Sweet Something": Original Fingerstyle

Hi folks!
Well, this little tune kind of "crept" up on me recently when I was in a reflective mood....more common these days for many of us, I'd guess!
Played on the Flammang GC 12 fret in DGDGBE tuning, Sweet Something is short, but I hope brings a message through. Hope you enjoy!
Best,
Fred

Very sweet and quite ‘something’ Fred. Enjoyed it a lot, lovely tone you and your guitar get - and very expressive.

Hi Fred! Loved this aptly titled beautiful little piece! Yes, reflective moods are a daily occurrence for many of us now. Your expressions here are definitely appreciated by me! It seems that you're enjoying that Flammang - it sure records beautifully!

Best to you and yours,

Larry
