Description
I admire a lot of guitarist/singers like Bert Jansch and Martin Simpson in England, Tom Rush and Paul Simon in the US. This is an attempt at putting down a fingerstyle riff that carries the song. The song is in E, with first guitar played with a a capo on the second fret and the bass string tuned down a tone; the second guitar is standard tuning with a capo on the 7th fret. The solo is played with a capo on the fourth fret. Add bass and that's it!

Hope you enjoy it!

Lyrics
Green Eyes
Words and Music by Philip Gardner

Went down to the river to throw in a line
To be somewhere tranquil and ease my mind
But out of the water a monster did rise
It stared at me wildly with the deepest green eyes

“You know that she’s with him,” it whispered to me
“Look through these eyes and I’m sure you will see.”

But here at the river I don’t have to look
Here it’s not me who is caught on the hook
Down at the river, I can’t hear the lies
I let the water wash over, those deep green eyes.

Mr Gardner Cool This IS
Uniique Vox My Man. Wow I am really blown by your raspy and full voice, Lyrical Gem and of course Guitar of Gods so delicately plucked. This my friend is an impressive and most beautiful performance with Production Magic applied. Your voice has the ability to go many places my friend many indeed. Guitar work excellent and focused. Most natural for you!

I appreciate the comments - thank you! I think in a way this was going back to what I do best and it is natural for me - although the raspy voiced monster has had a flanger effect added! Thanks for your support and interest!

lovely song
really wonderful guitarwork. I hardly ever use a capo but when I hear this it starts to itch :-)
And I really dig the warm mix, especially the vocals
Lovely vibe

I appreciate the comments on the guitar work, KC! I do find that using a capo gives a variety in tone for a second guitar and I use one a lot when multi-tracking or working with another guitarist. Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment and for the compliment of a download!

Love the woody tone of the drop D and the chimey tone of the right channel guitar. Your vocal is warm, relaxed and right in tune. Lovely composition & lyric. This is just superb, Phillip. Kudos!

Philip18 said 2112 days ago (February 9th, 2012)
Guitar tones
Thanks, John! That woody tone is in part, I think, using silk and steel strings. I wondered about that tone, and considered changing the strings to get it brighter, but decided I liked it as it was. Perhaps surprisingly the ring in the higher notes is typical of those strings, too. So many choices in guitars and strings.... Thanks for listening and leaving a comment - much appreciated!

Fine post
Some very nice work here, Philip. The placement of the guitars allows each contribution to add wonderfully to the mix. The riff is Martin Simpson like and it carries the song well. Your smooth vocals wash over the accompaniment and enhance the mood. Fine post. Talk soon, Peter

As the lyrics go from another song with the same title, "cool and limpid"! You've written yet another fine song and your work on it is a pleasure and delight to listen to Philip--I really loved this one! In the forums, Andrew was looking for songwriter/story tellers. I think he should get in touch with you because you are one of the best around the place in that regard, with lyrics seemingly simple yet so full of meaning. Glad I could get in to listen to this and thanks for allowing the download! Beautiful work--and greatly appreciated! Michael

The main guitar theme is excellent. I love the layering of the guitar parts. The contrasting vocal processing you use in different sections adds interest and variety to the sparse arrangement. The guitar tones you're capturing with that Blue Yeti are wonderful. I would never use the pickup again.

The "luxurious guitar tones" description certainly brought a smile to my face! Re the bass, I can say that in fact it took me a while - I tried to play some very simple bass and it didn't seem to add anything, but when i played more notes they seemed to clash with the guitars. so it took a while to find the happy medium that I thought added something. Thanks, Stephen, for listening and taking the time to comment!

I have an acoustic bass guitar and a decade ago, a good friend and I would play music in the galleries of the contemporary art museum where he worked. You and he have similar voices and guitar sounds and you make me hunger for more acoustic guitar.

Acoustic
Acoustic bass and guitar in an art museum - is there a better gig than that?! There are lots of guitar sounds I like, but I do keep coming back to where it all started, which is sort of where this song is... Thanks for listening and taking the time to comment - and for the compliment of a download!

Short and powerful
This is very pretty, and well constructed... every note seems exactly as it should be. Your voice is very expressive, and the words are fantastic... some of the best lyrics I've read in a while. Excellent work all around.

I like it - but have a question
Great Song - I really like it and so I used it within a small videoclip on YouTube. Now I get: "Your video may include music that is owned by a third party. - "Philip Gardner-Green Eyes", sound recording administered by: CD Baby".
How come? I thought it is published under Creative Commons License.

Using the song
I put it on MacJams and am happy for people such as yourself to use it. It is also part of a CD collection on CD Baby, where those who know nothing of MacJams can buy it.
