Default An original tune for Father's Day

This piece is called "Pop Tune" - Happy Father's Day to all the Dads



The title of this piece is a play on words. I learned how to play from my pop and the first songs I learned and would jam to were ones he wrote.

the first band I was in was his! He and I duetting on his original songs (an old video of one of them can be found if you browse my YouTube catalog).

As I started playing with the main theme, this composition came out fluidly, over the course of an afternoon. I was surprised how natural it was and how quickly it came together. As I was composing it I could not stop thinking: "This is a song my pop would write!".

I can't help but have his influence in my playing. I am forever grateful for the gift of music he gave me.

So this is my "Pop Tune".

Tuning - EBEGAD

Thanks for the compliment! The chords for the tuning do require some interesting finger-work
