Yes, I've been gone awhile. Not a whole hell of a lot to say, it seems. I'm finally back at work again after a lengthier layoff than anyone anticipated, so "free time" is rather scant.
Today, getting ready for a memorial service in a few days, I started practicing. I'm doing an old folk hymn, accompanying myself on guitar, as a prelude. I'll be playing guitar in public for the first time in years, and I am planning on using my "Crossroads Guitar," aka the Steel Beast. It looks like this, only mine has been "well loved" and is a bit tarnished. I need to get some pictures of me with mine.
Parting Friends is the result of that. At the memorial service, it will be just me and my guitar, but on the recording I have done three vocal lines and two guitar parts. Overall, I'm really pleased with how it came out.
If you decide to have a listen, I hope you enjoy it.
Now I'm exhausted and heading for slumberland!
