Default Original DADGAD fingerstyle: "Open Doerr"

Hi folks!!
Well, this one is from the archives...don't believe I've ever posted on AGF.
Back in '14 master luthier Tom Doerr completed my build, his own design, a Legacy model, with Lucky Strike Redwood and Cocobolo back and sides. I love the guitar and the build experience was really a great personal journey.
The year following I decided to do a CD titled "Open Doerr" of original tunes with just this guitar as a bit of a tribute to the instrument. I think there were 12 tunes and this one is the last and title song on that project.
As usual, credit to my wife for landing on a catchy interesting title to bring it all together.....
My recording set-up was not quite as good back then...but hopefully you'll enjoy this one. And thanks for taking a listen!
Fred

Excellent composition and despite what you say about your recording gear I think you have achieved a beautiful sound here. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much, Neil! Also, I appreciate the "follow" on Soundcloud! I do update fairly regularly, so you'll see new stuff from time to time!
All the best,
Fred

Very lovely, Fred!

What a lovely composition accompanied by such a great sound! That Doerr Legacy is wonderfully articulate and it sounds great in DADGAD where you are playing it.

Redwood and Cocobolo! Wow, that sounds so good!

And once more your wife has come up with a terrific, fanciful title, Fred! I don't know how she does it! It's so appropriate!

Thanks for the evening treat!

- Glenn

PS: To be honest, I can't hear any degradation in sound compared to your newer recordings, but I imagine if you had an A:B comparison -- here is the old setup, here is the new -- I'd be able to hear the difference. Either way, this is an aural treat just as it is.

Thanks so much, Glenn! So glad you enjoyed this one! I had of course sent a CD through to Tom Doerr, and both he and his wife enjoyed the results. I fondly remember when Tom and I discussed tone wood, he let me know that LS Redwood and Cocobolo "would be magical"..........a great combo. It's a fun title and carry different meanings....open as in the guitar opening up, open as in "come on in"!. I do like the play on words there.
Thanks again, Glenn....enjoy your day!
Fred
