Description
As of 1:30 p.m. this afternoon, I have a new nephew named Luke. Haven't sat down at the piano to noodle around in quite awhile, so after getting off the phone with my sister, I decided to see if I could come up with a little "welcome to the world" lullaby. What you hear is what I played, lol, with very very little fixing up, so be kind. A simple little tune, but it feels good to have played something. Anyway, this is for baby Luke - 9lbs 4oz and 3 weeks early.

Baby
To sweet, I hope he hears it everyday. Nice pacing...I would be challenged to be so restrained. You have such nice touch.

Thanks for the download :) and congrats on the new family member.

Sweet comments - thank you much. I'm glad you liked it. I actually was a little too restrained and had to bump up the tempo after I recorded it because it sounded more like a funeral than a birth. Anyway, thanks.

Luke's Lullaby
I couldn't imagine a greater inspiration. Lovely, baby & song.
9.4 pounds I'm sure mom is glad Luke came when he did (as opposed to 10 or 11 pounds in 3 weeks :-)

you are too sweet. I seem to always be posting just before your bedtime. fortunately i post more "quiet" music than upbeat stuff, or I'd be in trouble for causing insomnia.

sweet sweet gift
What a lovely song Shay. You are so blessed with your talents as a musician and now as a new aunt :) I wish you and your family the very best in the years ahead. This is really beautiful and a perfect gift. Just think ahead when he is old enough to realize how much he is loved that someone would write something so wonderful to celebrate him! Great job and thanks for sharing it with us!

Joy of Man's Desiring...
This started almost recognizably, and then turned into smiles and Shades of Shay all over, the very best tunes are simple hummable bits of joy. A gift of beauty. Luke and family will be happy with this!

So, when is your bundle of joy due (your CD-Baby, I mean?) :-)
ttfn,

Sometimes...
The simplest is the best. This is utterly beautiful Shay. I wrote a lullaby for my Niece 12 years ago. I didn't think she liked it one way or the other until when she was about 8 and I asked, this is what she said, "uncle I don't want to fall asleep when I hear it, I just want to hear it". So this may get the same reaction from your nephew (I kinda hope so) I almost cried when my niece told me that. Beautiful Shay Beautiful.

Congratulations Shay!! Coolest auntie EVER!!

Peace

This is really good....
Hookedin60seconds Music site had a contest on lullaby not long ago
if I were a betting Man and I'm not...
I'm sure this could have won the contest but I think it's done now, don't
really know what the prizes were never did any digging into it....
I must say he's a handsome little guy, he'll grow up to be a heart breaker, well maybe not but I'm sure you'll show him how to play the keys......

Very nice...
...as one perfect little snippet given to another... Neat how you let it get just a bit warmer as it plays...

It's simple but it has that nice declamatory thing I tend to enjoy, where I can almost hear words at the edge of my hearing... There's a song in there waiting to be sung...

Very sweet, gentle and good....
