Description
This tune is based on an earlier version were I just fingerpick. In this tune I add a tuba, a synth sound, lead acoustical guitar. The instrumental was based around my fingerpicking. This an original fingerpicking tune I composed.

Myrtle is my aunt from my father's side, she past away. But I owe her an awful lot. My wife and I took care of her for years before she past away. We live in a beautiful house in one of the wealthiest communities in the world. Because we took care of her, it lead to us obtaining the house we now live in.

II really believe it was a miracle how it all came to pass. She was drop dead gorgeous, and my grandfather from my mother's side I guess always had a crush on her. He new her for decades before they had a clue they would marry!
So after my grandmother past away, Herman my grandfather married her.
He moved out of his house many miles away to live with her, were we now live. They are both gone now.

It is a miracle how it all came to pass.
I feel like I could call this a real act of
God. I honestly don't mean this to be
anything other than that.

*Thanks Myrtle ! ! !

This tune has kind of has a feel I thought of her time period think, or at least I tried to make it sound dated. With a happier type feeling because she always seemed so happy. She really did.

Beautiful! You nail the earlier era...

feel with this song. It definitely is worthy of her
beauty. Your selflessness in caring for her is
also worthy or recognition. As it is written in the
Gospels, you have [also] stored up treasure for
yourselves in heaven. Thanks for sharing the
story behind this one.

She really was something special, I really do owe and awful lot to her, whether
she realizes it or not.

Tiler's Rag
Something about the tuba reminds me of Charles Ives,
who sometimes composed early 20th Century orchestral
pieces that sounded like out-of-tune school bands. One
piece actually depicts two marching bands marching into
each other.

Anyway, this has that turn of the century ragtime feel,
Very happy piece. A wonderful tribute to your aunt.

Balance
Your guitar work is excellent as always, but the balance
with the other instruments is less. What turned out to be a
tuba initially sounded as distortion on the guitar to me. I'd
push the guitars back a little.

I think my biggest challenge is learning how to record better.

Interesting juxtaposition
Can't say I ever heard guitar and tuba together. A
happy interplay. Watch your levels. You have some
serious "clipping" going on here.
