Description
I've been working on this for a while now, I found the very 1st guitar I ever had my sister
past away not long ago and it was in her closet...
I got it about 2 months before I went to Vietnam, thought it was dead and gone...

A Nylon String Yamaha, banged up chipped in places her kids had fun with it for a while...
But I cleaned it up put some new tuning keys, at the top and she's ready to rock...
Funny thing is I was going to buy one this winter, Christmas Gift to me now I don't have to...Thanks Sis...

This tune is for Mr. Mandela some one that I held in high regard, for his stand on Justice
though he had very little of it in his life, we all live better for his efforts...
But his work is not done yet, we still have some that have not learned anything sense they
left the Caves...Here's hoping they see the light soon, or they can pack a bag and go live
on the MOON....

I played all the instruments...

Hope you all enjoy it...

Peace....

Love that rhythm you have going that you can riff off of with the guitar. It has an interesting mix of grooves you've brought together so that overall it is quite unique in how the piece sounds. A little latin, a little ballad, a little hint of jazz guitar. A fine tribute to a great man, and a treat for us. Thanks for the dload.

Thanks....Philip
Been trying to reply to your comment for the past 4 days....
Finally....Glad you enjoyed the tune, I tried to give it an Afro Jazz
kinda feel, once came to the conclusion it was for Mandela...

Thanks again for stopping in....

Homage To Mandela..
What an absolutely beautiful track ... that old guitar has a nice sound but that also could be the way you are playing it. Excellent piece for an excellent man.
Cheers

Thanks...Stan
I fell in love with it all over again, after thinking it was dead and gone...
I'm really not a finger picker, so that's why I used a simple approach and
tried to create my own style of play...Glad you enjoyed it...

And Thanks again for stopping in.....Stan..

Soothing tribute
Very nice playing on your 'vintage' guitar. Great beats behind it as well. Doesn't overshadow the playing.

Homage
Luv that unplugged feel
I'm groovin' and the percussion arrangement
The chord progression is hot, as well as unpredictable
The guitars are talking to each other, my grandpa said during a lesson "I talk you answer!"
The history of the guitar is great, and is now priceless
The message:
A great man indeed! After his release from prison more of his message and his stand against injustice became known.

Steve...You always
Hit the nail on the head, your Gramp's was like mine he gave me all the info I
needed to move through this world the way I wanted it to be for me...
I miss him more then the air I breath and that guitar, is a memory that connects
me to him, because he was still around then...

And I'm so glad you like the tune, he meant a lot to me as well...
