Wow, what a beautiful piece. I am a huge fan of Will McNichol and he was to play at the 2020 rendition of B.I.G. and Tom Sands and Daisy were going to be there too. It was heart wrenching when we had to cancel. I asked him to bring Innotet along too, but he did not think they would fit in his carry on!

Very special song and the guitar and cello are perfect together. Congrats!

What a lovely thing to be able to share. I think Will is a fabulous player and composer.

Smile Commissions...

Not only have you commissioned a spectacular instrument, but a lovely piece of music as well! Nice double play!

This is just PEACHY! Way to go.

Congratulations and a big BRAVO to all involved in the entire operation

Thank you all for the kind words. It certainly brings a fitting end to this first build experience.

I remember Tom being over the moon about B.I.G. last year, and I am certain you guys will make it happen in another installment. The guitar he created for this occasion ("Alejandra" I believe) is one of my favorite to date.

Thanks +++ for uploading that: I enjoyed it a lot: I thought you played a lot like Will until I realised it was him playing!

I commissioned a piece of music myself a couple of years ago from a favourite player of mine, and it's very special indeed to be able to help create something unique to you. It was extraordinarily exciting to hear the piece performed for the first time by the musician, knowing that you are responsible for it.

Someone also pointed out to me that by doing so you are supporting the musicians who have sufficient talent to compose well, and are adding to the body of work. That's quite different to commissioning yet another guitar.

Cheers,
Steve
