A beautiful old tune from the 1800’s, played flatpicking and fingerpicking styles on the 2015 50th Anniversary Edition Martin D-35, with overdubs. (YouTube or iCloud link provided). Thanks for tuning in!

One of my favorite songs. Sometimes I think about the words, some of which I don’t quite get.
Nicely played.
I clicked like and subscribe.

Thank you, Leslie. The tune is from an opera in the early 1800's.

The original source of “Home, Sweet Home” was an opera known called Clari, or The Maid of Milan. The lyrics were written by John Howard Payne and set to music composed by Sir Henry Bishop (1786-1855).

‘Mid pleasures and Palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble there’s no place like home!
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which seek through the world, is ne’er met with elsewhere.
Home! Home, sweet sweet Home!
There’s no place like Home! There’s no place like Home!

An Exile from Home, Splendour dazzles in vain!
Oh! Give me my lowly thatch’d Cottage again!
The Birds singing gaily that came at my call,
Give me them with the peace of mind dearer than all!
Home! Home, sweet sweet Home!
There’s no place like Home! There’s no place like Home!

To thee, I’ll return overburdened with care,
The heart’s dearest solace will smile on me there.
No more from that cottage again will I roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.
Home! Home, sweet sweet Home!
There’s no place like Home! There’s no place like Home!

Super playing as usual, Chuck, and an amazing chiming sound you get from that guitar.

Thank you, Paul. I only record with a mini iPad and if I’m at the right distance and angle (which I haven’t quite honed in on yet) I get a beautiful ring from that D35.

ed: unless youre referring to that first go-round where I've overdubbed a fingerpicking background capo'd high up the neck.
