Description
I haven't had too much time for trips to the studio lately, nor for the Macjams either. So I've felt a little like I was on the outside looking in with the MJRF.

While perusing my mac for 2006 songs I found that I had recorded this riff on electric with the GB guitar emulator. It sounded like crap but I liked the idea. I revisited it last fall and did it acoustically and meant to fine tune it but I can't find the master files! Anyway, in an effort to beat the deadline here it is...

Sir Pete!
I love this man! Excellent strings my friend... Like you were born with them!!!

Excellent excellent!!! Thanks for finding this great little piece!!! It is music like this that makes me wonder how many MJers have some little treasure packed away that they didn't like the first time around... Wow!

Too Kind
Thanks for the warm words here Mark, you make me blush!

I guess I always liked this one but I felt it deserved a further treatment. I like where the lead line took me but it was improvised and some of the phrasing and execution is a little less than it could be. I was actually intending to do something I've never done and learn the lead line to re-record it and get the best of my playing out of it.

Maybe I still will some day. In the meantime, I'm glad that the Reunion festival coaxed me to drag it out into the light of day.

Thanks again for diggin' it just the way it is!

What are you doing playing electric?
You've got a great lyrical feel on acoustic.... This takes me back to two track overdubs on my ancient Tascam long ago... I really like this, Pete....

Decisions, decisions
Sometimes the acoustic urge just strikes. I find this chord progression particularly pleasing to play and decided to lay it down again properly, on acoustic. My intention was to play an electric lead over top of it but as soon as I hit playback my fingers started fiddling on the guitar I was holding and wouldn't let me put it down.

I guess it's good to go with the flow!

Thanks for dropping by for a listen Ed!

Wonderful
Great to have you listening in again Kenta. I've been away for a while, with work consuming too much time but it's good to know old friends are here to welcome me back whenever I have a chance to stop in.

Good morning!
It is a pleasure to know I helped a fellow Canuck get a nice start to her day. And even nicer to know one of my little ditties made it onto your iPod!

Thanks for listening and downloading.

Clever as usual
Nice play on the age of the strings. I found myself hanging on to my brothers old guitar after he left home. I guess he never had the urge to change the strings, in fact he had an affinity for old strings. Maybe he was on to something with this guitar.

Alas, the strings started falling apart and I had to replace them shortly after this piece was recorded. The guitar hasn't been the same since.

Thanks for the listen and thoughtful words Bill!

Cool way to put it
And I think I know what your talking about. There are a couple of spots to put me in mind of just what you speak of. Sometimes one can get lucky!

Thanks!

Don't be a stranger!
Thanks for posting this, Pete. I really enjoyed it. This really works as an acoustic piece and I'm glad you decided to go with that idea.

Me too!
Like I mentioned earlier, you'd have had to fight me to get the acoustic out of my hands once I started noodling around with the lead.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Gorgeous Tone
How pretty, Pete! I agree with Ed, I want to hear you doing more acoustic stuff, you really are playing with a wonderful lyricism and some magic fingers on this one. The guitar sounds beautiful, beautiful. I'm glad you got it recorded before the strings gave out. I like this A LOT!

6-String Swan Song
Funny how those strings still had some life in their old bones before they gave up the ghost. It was with great reluctance that I changed them but when winding comes undone you know it's time.

The sad thing is the new strings have a horrible rattle. I wonder if the old strings were what was keeping the guitar together!

Thanks for the warm sentiments.

I picked a bad time
To get a new electric guitar! If I can tear myself away from that I'll keep in mind the general sentiment that I should do more acoustic.

Thanks for the kind words!

Rhythm & Lead
That covers two of my favourite parts of the guitar playing spectrum!

Thanks for the kind words from a guy who could teach me a thing or two in those very areas.

Brilliant
What a great little tune - reminded me a little of Steve Howe's acoustic work. It's really crying out for a bit of reflective vocals a la Nick Drake. You have a real improvisational talent. Great.
