OK. So I haven't posted a song in six or seven years but I miss MJ so I thought I'd put something up just to reestablish my existence. This is a tune I'm trying to get my fingers around that some friends and I just started playing. It's just two takes - one for melody and one for some very approximate chords.

Please excuse the pinhole mic, no headphones, multiple fluffed notes, ringing frets, one take, unmixed mess that it is, but it's a lot of fun to play.

no excuses
sorry, I just cannot accept any excuses for this kind of music and performance… it is light-hearted, sweet, nicely played, and wonderful to listen to. I know you hear the flaws, but luckily I get to be the audience, and simply revel in the music… thanks, and good t' 'ave ye back!

Authentic, audience oriented music, William. Some fine sounding mandolin. The pin hole mic gives the recording an immediacy that is dynamic and quite impressive. Welcome back to MJ. Thanks, Peter.
