“Wish You were Here” Acoustic Style….


I have to say that when I’m in a mood, and I get in moods. Just ask anyone, there is nothing that works better for me than listening to some beautiful guitar music. Turn up the volume ans let it envelop me. Using the breaks with the amazing riffs help work the cobwebs of life out of my head every time.

On Saturdays I will typically listen to the guitar God him self EPIC CLAPTON in particular. We have had a regular Saturday date for most of my adult life.  He plays while I work, and I turn it up the audio LOUD.

But today it’s David Gilmore and his acoustic folksy version of “Wish You Were Herekind of mood. It’s his acoustic version of his Pink Floyd’s tune by the same title. It is the medicine I need right now. No offense Clapton. There is something about the clustering of these of chords, and the way that Gilmore plays off of them into his improv riffs that rips into the soul.  Some days its just best to sit down and let yourself be taken away by the music, the playing. Let it do its thing.

Did I say that I am a big fan of guitar music? Anything with strings actually. Love violin music too. But I have definite tastes and that tend to run acoustic. But I love some good electric riffs to as I said…. Eric Clapton is Epic Clapton and what is not to love about him? But there are times when something else was needed. Music tends to be like that, Very emotional based are music choices made I believe.

I am blessed that I have a great collection of music. I have been collecting it for 45 yrs. I also am very lucky that I have a great Music Maestro in my life who is constantly teaching me new things. i  am not sure he will agree with my choice for today but that is what teaching involves. New music. And continually building my collection. thank you
