Default An original tune on a Simon Fay guitar!

Not a "new" piece, but not recorded on any of my CDs.

I haven't been playing a lot, but I thought I would try to get this down, to share on the ol' social-media during our shelter-in-place/social-distancing circumstances.

I think this turned out well...enjoy.

Thumbs up

Lovely playing, and neat song. It was cool seeing your technique as well. You look focused yet relaxed as you played, this one was clearly 'in your fingers'.

Thanks for sharing with us!

That was great, it put a smile on my face. Thanks.

I'm always amazed when watching someone play with years of classical experience. Its like watching a spider gracefully dancing on the fret board instead of my fat caterpillars flopping along,

Very well done Larry! I enjoyed that! Lovely composition and very well played! That's also a lovely sounding guitar!

If you hadn't told us, I don't think any of us could tell that you haven't been playing much lately!

The tone of Simon's guitars is a joy to the ears for tunes like this.
