Default Heart of Grace - solo

Not sure how to classify this one. I kept adding stuff to it, moving parts around, adding scales, rearranging, and then adding more verses. It would have gone on forever like that, so I figured I'd better call it quits and try to record it before it all escaped me..........

70 degrees and very beautiful this time of year in VA and NC. The cherries, forsythia, azaleas, dogwoods, etc. are all in bloom.

Hope it's a good weekend for everyone.

Very heartfelt performance, Bill! You achieve a very full sound in this recording...I love the sound of your guitar. On another note....(pun intended)...is that a flag causing the moving shadow outside the window? At first I thought it looked like the shadow of people gathering outside to listen to you!

Bob,

Oh yes, there must have been over a hundred people outside. For the sake of modesty, I cut out the thundering applause and the signature signing in the video

Thanks Bob and Kerbie!

--Bill


(And, yes, it was just the flag)

And we thought it was your fan club.

If you let your neighbors in on your playing, you'll have them lining up, Bill. Keep up the great work.

Beautiful tune, Bill. Nicely arranged and performed. I enjoyed the background as well.

That's really pretty Bill. I love how your pieces always have such interesting diverse melodies. You blend them very well. I've gotten to where I know when I see your posts that the production will be spot on and this one did not disappoint. Well done!
