Bread in the Mail

Posted by Stev187 on Sunday, January 28, 2007

Recently, I read a post here about the "polished" nature of the mp3 postings here.  So I decided to let it all hang out and make a short recording of a tune I am working on.

I just recently tried the "Cumberland Gap" tuning, and this is the first tune I am working on (along with "Little Satchel").

The funny thing is that the tune was pretty well developed in my head from years of hearing it; I am certain that I am ripping whole phrases off from Cathy Fink and Dan Gellert.  I guess that says good things about my musical memory and bad things about my musical creativity!  I'm going to dig those tapes out and see later today.

You can also hear my natural practice environment--kids running around and chaos. 

I will NOT put this in the BHO jukebox!


 Oh, and the silly title comes from something I say at the end.  We gave some money to a foundation last year, and the thank you note was a dozen dinner rolls that arrived in a padded envelope in the US Mail.  Kind of odd, don't you think?

This is great audio clip. Keep it, it will become priceless. It reminds me of when my girls were little. Good picking.

Somebody sent you bread in the mail?  I loved the part where you just flat old told the li'l princess that the good snacks are locked up, hahah.

It gives a starter like me hope, to hear someone as good as you floppin' around on a difficult part.  Still sounds way better than me, but, like I said... strangely encouraging =P
