I loved this guitar when you posted it the other day. Nice to hear what you meant it for.

Love the tinkly piano too. :)

Heh, I was too anxious to wait for after Nov to upload this. Anyway I doubt anyone would have guessed how this all started. It started as an attempt to create a original ‘Christmas’ song (didn’t quite work out). Then as an attempt at singing SackJo’s words (let’s not go there). Finally when the song creation didn’t seem to go anywhere, I just played the guitar to SackJo’s words, thinking about how there really was a lot to be grateful for.

Ivan — I was incredibly moved by your arrangement. It felt like your guitars warmly embraced the words and the tone of my voice. Thank you so much for this remix. It’s a beautiful example of how we can inspired and connect with each other through music. I am truly grateful.

Wow. This is gorgeous, Ivan. Goosebump inducing gorgeous. Touching. And triumphant!

I was aiming for the goosebump effect! The pells, of course, was a big part of that. Thank you for listening and commenting, Kara S.
