Wildwood Flower

Get Flash to see this player.

Although I have enjoyed recording with Garageband and it's many effects and options, my favorite kind of music will always be playing live with other human beings. I used to gig with my friend Greg as a duo called High and Lonesome. Then Greg got remarried and well . . . you know how that sometimes goes. We do still get together once a week just to drink a little wine or beer and play some of our old tunes and usually have a lot of fun. Greg has resisted any of these jam sessions being recorded but I finally convinced him and this is a totally live song with all the warts exposed. We are sitting three feet from my Mac and recording through the built-in mic. Wildwood Flower is a very famous traditional folk song and does have lyrics but we just do it as an instrumental. We start off fairly slow and then challenge each other to see how fast we can play it. It's not great music but it sure is a lot of fun!!

Classic folk tune, and classic bronco. No high powered
executives messed with this one, I can tell. Mandolinquent
could only come in on the backside and offer his
compliments and flowery praise.

Good stuff, Tom and Greg.
