This is deep gratitude. Some particularly lovely images, and wonderful rhythmic interplay between your voice and the guitar. Lovely.

thanks Susan! i had to cut my vocals and move them around to fit just right with Alex’s lovely guitar work.

thank you! it was a change for me to do something so sparse, but i really enjoyed working with Alex’s guitar and it just seemed to stand on its own.

Snaps!
Has the cool beatnik vibe that was gone before we were old enough to look for it.

What is so cool is that this is like a bookend of go1dfish’s own mix, the same kind of beat poetry recital style as one another’s work. And of course, remixing a person’s guitar and their presence in day to day life gives this an intimacy that is almost painful to listen to.

thanks Richard! i had to cut and stretch Alex in parts — and cut my own vocals too so our interplay wouldn’t step on each other. the lyrics are inspired by all that has been transpiring here in the past few months. Alex lives across the street from me and has been an amazing support and friend.

I don’t think I remember a musical piece with just a improve lead a a vocal. Just beautiful.

thanks Greg! i had never done anything like this, and it was a great experiment. i kept trying to add other elements — piano, backing vocals, synth — but it just felt wrong. Alex’s guitar playing needed to be by itself!

These are the times when I hate the fact that I can’t concetrate and listen to vocals as a voice and hear what they are saying. I will have to listen a few times more to really here what your saying instead of hearing sound.

It is however a beautiful combination: goldfish improv and your poetry.

Maybe it seems basic and clear.But It is at the very different level.
It contains artistic feeling that i loved very much this feeling.
Very artistic.,

Oh my. Your words… this imagery… that guitar… and your gripping voice- calm, soft, impossible to ignore… I love the simplicity of this. It’s magical. Impressive. You let your words, your poetry, go1dfish’s guitar, your voice room… to breathe… to grow. Yeah- magical.

This is beautiful, snowflake. The guitar piece and your poem are both emanating so much emotion and combine to create something very powerful.

Sycamore’d. That’s what I’ve been with this bluesy number. Let’s head on down to Bourbon Street where the music is a groovy kind of smooth like this.

This one really gets to me .. I lost two beautiful Sycamores to last year’s infernal Texas drought. And I only had three sycamores to start with ..
