after a long hiatus, caused by needing a bridge repair, i played the ol’ 1975 martin d-35 and she sounds better than ever. 40 years old! i can’t believe i’ve taken car of her for over half her life. i’m sort-of joking about them not making guitars like they used to. i’d happily take seth avett’s custom d-35 🙂
it’ll take me awhile to get my fingers back in playing condition but i think i’m going to try to do some recording over the winter.
btw, something i learned that’s obviously in hindsight, is that if it looks like the bridge is coming unglued, immediately remove the strings or you’ll quickly go from a $100 repair to glue the bridge to a $300 repair to fix the broken bridge brace and then glue the bridge. d’oh!
with treehouse deck now mostly secure i realized that inviting local musicians to record “the treehouse sessions” is a thing i can do now!
think twilight, late evening with lights twinkling and a mood similar to this stray birds video.
The Stray Birds – Loretta from Beehive Productions on Vimeo.
i played for a bit up the trees and it’s excellent. i think this is a thing that has to happen and already have a few locals roped in!.
not so much a proper song, per se, yet. think of it as a sketch of an idea. sounds more tinny through soundcloud than it does on raw track. try headphones.
not sure why i don’t share more of my futzing with the git box. here’s a quick little ( rough ) ditty. ( also, testing soundcloud ).
literally improv’d on the spot, so don’t take it too seriously. but maybe interest on a continuing “sunday songs” series?
