Description
Hey there,

Here's a little ditty that I've been playing with for a while. I haven't written anything complete in a long time and all I have are half-baked ideas for new songs, 30-40 second pieces. So, after reading bud's post, I used my phone's stopwatch and started timing myself playing each of those "half-baked ideas." This one ended up fitting the bill!

This is my first hybrid-picking tune. Since I really like the melody (and since I can't develop it any further), I frequently use it as an exercise. Everything is one take. The solo, the beat, the strings, the bass, and the shakers were unexpected (I was thinkin' of a solo piece), but after trying 'em out, I loved the sound!

I hope those 30 seconds put a smile on your face (like the pic)! :)

Thank you bud for this wonderful challenge, at least I got to make use of one of my exercises! :P

Kind regards,
- Yeman

Love the chord modulations
and of course your playing is just superb--I think you could play dental floss and it would sound great. And yes, it left a smile on my face! Thanks again Yeman!

This is cool. Though it feels like it belongs to a larger piece, it still fits here into this jigsaw. You play beautifully, it is always great to hear what you compose, keep them flowing.

Fabulous Yeman

I like the light percussion, just enough to support your great guitar playing. Nice pic too- I thought I came to the wrong page, as I've used that pic myself on "Do you dare?" hehe what are the chances... pretty high! lol
