Felix and dad

Description
My son Felix (12) and me improvising. You hear Felix enter as the first guitar with a theme he made up. Then comes me as second guitar improvising.

The recording was made last autumn. I found it today more than a year later, (was probably too busy to take care of it by the time it was made).

And YES, in case you wonder, I am proud of Felix, almost badly so.

Felix is also a MacJammer, (mj-name: Mackie).

Slow, sweet progress
i'm seeing a summer's day, motion too slow and sweet for a car, easy and smooth, like a narrowboat on a country canal. A trip with friends, on a perfect day.

Lovely. Enjoyed it. Reminds me of warmer days in this very cold weather!

You both play very well.

Music and generations
... so great that you can share your really wonderful talent with your son, and he his with you.

A very cool way for you both to communicate with each other and with the rest of us.

Everything I like...
...in music and in life...

With headphones on, I can easily hear which guitar is which, and yet they are so nicely intertwined that they sound like one unfolding musical experience...

Mackie's guitar figure is nicely simple, and your playing complements it with thoughtful care... Reminds me a little bit of the way John Renbourn would decorate the chord figures of Bert Jansch back in the day, although the sensibility here is more folk, with less of jazz and blues...

It is plain that father and son are speaking the same musical language here. It is also excellent that the results are not "pretty good for a twelve year old", but just "really good...really beautiful"....

I hope that more of these will pop up over time...
Cori Ander said 2443 days ago (December 8th, 2010)
Thank you Ed!
I too hope that more of these will pop up over time.
All that is missing is the step to action. But the encouragement you and others give here inspires me...
Thanks a lot!

This is wonderful....
It makes me joyful, such bright and airy guitar playing. And to know it is you and your son is just great. This is a perfect way to start my day.... music from CurryLand with the CurryBand! Best to you and Felix.

A chip off the block!
Johannes, you are a lucky man to have developed this shared interest with your son! Felix, you are a lucky young man to have a dad who can pass these wonderful skills on to you.
Musically (as I wipe a developing tear from my eye), this is terrific - from a listener's perspective, if I hadn't known Felix' age, I would never have imagined his parts were being played by someone so young. His clarity of tone, accurate and reliable fingering and musical understanding all shine through here, and auger well for his musical future.
Johannes - your playing is, as always, a delight. I am so pleased for you to have posted this here.
My very best wishes to you both and the rest of the family this Christmas - all the best too for 2011.
Cheers from Oz,
Neil

I hear a family resemblance here
in the quality of playing. Very well done Felix, and your dad didn't even mess it up for you, you both did really well on this.

Very cool little song here you two.

Cori Ander said 2442 days ago (December 9th, 2010)
Yes
Certainly there is a family resemblance here. When I first heard the track after a year had passed since it was recorded, I thought it was me who did the introductory guitar.. then.. hm is that Felix doing the other? no it is the other way around...

So great to hear from you .. (long time no hear :)

But really .. it would be great to hear your song! Why not post it? I promise to give a good ear to it and I bet Felix will do too, (though he is at school right now when I write this comment so I can't ask him, but I will give him a note of your comment as soon as he is home).
