Day & Night (Acoustic Version)

September 15, 2014

This song is a journey which takes you through the beautiful English landscape to a final resolution and revelation. A favourite from my repertoire, this is a song that I never get bored of performing.

The guitar part is a repeated right had pattern that my father taught me years ago (he called it the rifle pick). I have since realised that he made this up and I have been underusing my thumb/overusing my fingers. Not the end of the world where identity is important. In the mean time I have now learned and continue to develop the standard Travis picking technique.

This is a sweet atmospheric song. Keen to pick up a smaller bodied guitar the 00-18 was a perfect match. Mahogany back and sides, spruce top, rosewood board and bridge. Classic solid mahogany voice with crisp attack, great sustain, bright yet balanced.
