Where's the punchline
Hey Willie - i always think of your more 'humourous' songs, so this came as a shock, but how nice to hear thi s'side' of you. Beautifully played, and a lovely live feel. I don't know if this wants vocals or not - it's great as it is. Great image, and a very specific title - did you write this because of the picture?

Really nice work.

Thanks guys,
I was working around some lyrics for it, and decided against it. I was also working on a second guitar with a counter melody, which I haven't ruled out yet. I wanted it fairly singular and simple. I had the idea of the soldier as I played it, I didn't want a sense of dramatic. I suppose this is about simple loss.

very nice
guitar playing, mr wagga.

sweet, simple and very cleanly played. I bet you could work on the eq on this to make the guitar sound a little more substantial....but a small nit.

really enjoyed this piece.

Very nice guitar
Nice melodic picking, almost entrancing in its rhythm. Music to hear in a garden? Nice work. Peace.

Beautifully played...
...and the juxtaposition btwn the music and the picture just hit me like a ton of bricks.

Simple sadness...

Ralph Stanley is playin at the bandshell
tonight and I'm here - but I'm listening to this really beautiful tune picked so gracefully. I'm not missing a thing. This is a wonderful song - and there is beauty and horror and life that flows through music and comforts in death as well. Oh Death... sings Ralph.

The guy in the picture
doesnt seem to be doing too well. By contrast, your picking suggests only something negative by the sparseness of the arrangement, the lack of any clear outbursts of emotion. Are you trying to picture the bleakness of it all?

Your picking is wonderfully clean and subtle. Much enjoyed.

A simple
statement of the inevitability of the cycle of life which, far to often is cut short sooner than we expect. Dignified and elegant. A gift. Loved it. Thank you.

Simply gorgeous...
... combined with the image you've chosen, says it all without words. Pastoral and tragic in equal measures. I love this.

war & peace
Great restraint in bringing this up in solo acoustic form. The vocal I'd hear wold be Richard Thompson's. One of the few I can think of who can convey strength and sadness, or war and peace, in a single breath. I need to go now... add you to my list of top artists...

I spend most of my time painting, stuff, often reproducing work by other artists, for whimsical clients, sometimes I paint original work, but not nearly enough. I'm very critical of my own paintings, so they're very often never started. I wish I ha... [see more]
