Description
A little instrumental piece with my acoustic guitar and my good friend Larry Jensen on bass. You can hear my foot tapping and other external noises. I cleaned it up and added a bit of verb. Thanks for listening.
The image is an etching I did some years back.

Thanks for listening
When I do my art I take breaks and play my guitar. This is when I usually come up with new ideas. So I have always had a hard time separating the two. Most of the other tunes I have posted have one along with it. Thanks so much for taking the time to listen and look.

Delightful
Lovely touch on the guitar and beautifully clean sound you are getting from it. You could be sitting in with Bert Jansch and John Renbourne on this. Lilting, flowing melody. Nice bass, too. Your art work is exceptional- do you exhibit it anywhere?

Hi Philip
Thanks for dropping in and listening. I use to exhibit but my visual art has been consumed with making children's animated tv shows these days so I don't do as much fine art as I use to. Thanks for your kind comments Philip. I put some licks down on your new tune this past weekend and hope to get back to it this Saturday.
Cheers

Happy to be taken up and shown your etchings, Stan, as long as the guitar comes along as chaperone :-) Nice tune, enhanced by the bass work. Enjoyed, Peter.

Thanks Peter
That's funny because my guitar is always my chaperon. When I do my visual art my guitar is right there beside me watching my every move!
Thanks for listening and looking!

Had me thinking of Page's classic Black Mountain Side. Beautiful playing by you both and an excellent sounding recording.

Hi Andrew
Thanks for the listen and the comment. I can see the Page in it ... or hear the Page in it. It's the hammer-ons and pull-offs that probably remind you of Black Mountain Side.
Cheers Andrew

Beautiful Stan...
Just heading off to bed and came back for another listen to send me off with some pleasant dreams. Wonderful recording and performance--you are one of those artists I can just close my eyes and both hear AND see at work. Thanks for sharing this and, incidentally, that etching is very nice!! Of course, I'm only realizing looking at it again that the person who left those shoes in the snow obviously climbed up a vine or something at that juncture! You take care now and keep up the fine work--Michael

Nice piece....
At lest your foot taps are in time, you keep that groove.....
Nothing worst then hearing foot taps, that are no were near the beat
and the guitar lines are behind the groove, you can tell they don't know
where the time is....
But you My Man are on it, that's just what it is right there......

Real good my Friend.....just wish I could play that kinda feel, I suck
at finger picking......hahaha.....LOL...

Peace....

This is wonderful, love the tone, the foot taps and the tune itself. For some reason the person I was put in mind of was Bruce Cockburn, much enjoyed Mark

Always enjoy your music and artwork Stan.

Nice song - the sound reminds me of a Leo Kottke / Mike Gordon thing. I enjoy the fingerstyle approach.

Stan, you're just a superb player my friend. I really admire the dynaic quality that you are able to achieve by softening the touch and by digging in when needed...nice contrasting points here. Larry did a fine job on bass as well. Nice post!

you make bass and acoustic guitar sound like a symphony. i really like the originality of this....it kind of goes to places you're expecting it to....but then darts off to the left and carries you somewhere new. perfect length. perfect track. the extraneous sounds add to the whole.
