VOM1T October 2019

Okay. This is another recording of The Boxer, minus one verse because my mind wandered and I totally forgot to sing it. How many of us have done that before?

This is on the Goodall RCJC after a setup that put the strings too low and made it buzz. I put 13s on it after that to attempt to pull some string height into it but James makes his guitars like battle axes.

Some of you might recall that I'm a SF fan, and that one aspect of SF fandom is "filk," songs which  sometimes have an SF bent. Our regional Sf convention, Archon, has held a filk competition for the last few years. They post a theme and you have a week to write a song. This year's theme was "The Moon is not enough." I won again this year against a very talented young lady. Here's my original, "Time To Leave The Cradle."

Idunno - Well done and the Goodall sounded good, as I'd expect. I missed Garfunkel's harmonies though. 😉
garthman - I wasn't familiar with that one but I listened to it on YouTube and I like your "stripped down acoustic version" very well.
