Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar Instrumental
Summer was released in May 2019 – it’s an instrumental acoustic guitar track with tuning CGDGCE. It’s another of the first songs I composed after my 25 year absence from playing, and was a joy to write and play. It evokes memories of outdoor gatherings in the summer in my backyard with fires, wine and conversations. I love the chord progression around the 3:00 minute mark!
The photo for the cover art I took at the Everett Road Covered Bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, near Szalay’s Farm. My father would bring me and my siblings here in the summer and we would look for fossils in the stream bed. In my family it became known as “The Old Covered Bridge”.
