Each time I show up for the open mic at the Folk Music Center in Claremont, I try to push the envelope a bit, play something a little more challenging, a little more complex. The idea is to keep my mind busy enough with the detail that it forgets to be scared. (Well, it kind of works. )
This time, the end of December 2014, I chose a piece I had just written called The Hart. I wanted to play something that sounded Celtic. I wanted to use the guitar to imitate the drone of bag pipes and the sound of clay pipes and such.
Well, here it is. Hopefully you will find it entertaining.
