First written in November of 2018, I thought this piece of music was lost. I came upon in while doing a site redesign this year and I am overjoyed. This piece is inspired by one of my guitar heros, Andy McKee. It is written in a standard tuning and using a Shubb Capo C7 depressing 3 strings on the 5th fret.
Late in Februrary of 2018 I wrote this guitar piece to cope with the overwhelming emotions stirred from my Dad’s failing health. Coming to grips with the mortality of a loved one is a lot to process. A year and a half has gone by since his passing and I felt a tugging to engage with this song again, playing it every chance I get. It seems right to re-record it as a rememberence on his birthday....
It’s always been something I’ve wanted to accomplish but have always found a reason to put it off. Too busy, not good enough, not complete. Whatever the reason, it was always holding me back. Perhaps I was just too afraid to put it out there. Some of these songs have been around for years. Lullaby is going on nearly 10 years already. I couldn’t wait any longer. And once you make that kind of decision, it’s hard to stop the momentum....

Each morning I would sit on the deck with Lottie, our dog. She’s passed but I still think about her every day. This song is part of the Summer Sessions series of recordings.
This is a fun and light piece. It’s a faster tempo than most songs I write on acoustic. It was named by my oldest daughter that could sing the words “tweety bird” to it. This song is part of the Summer Sessions series of recordings.
