an ode to a memory not long ago

By george bowles on March 25, 2018 1:53 am

what are the limits of perception and memory? another found guitar at my mother's house, this one a full body acoustic guitar. had a rather brittle, crisp tone to it. played in the upstairs living room that my mother used to frequent.

has a feeling of unrest, for being a light song. those open chords and the melody you're carving outta 'em feel real unique and tense

I can feel the emotional weight of the room and of the guitar.  I'm glad you are channeling your experiences into your work.  Beautiful, haunting.

Very lovely.

I like the empty-house feeling that unfolds through this improvisation.  There's a sparse isolation to it, but a living thread through it as well.  Beautiful work, sir!

i think part of this is that my stepfather isn't very open minded about music and i was trying to play this before he noticed or something.
