Here's a "Slow Tune" I wrote back in 2015 (this take re-recorded 2021).  Some members will have heard it before, but it should new to others.  I do seem to recall promising to do this for the party thread AGES ago - so better late than never - It's called "Billy's Return"

Normally played in G, but, I have (for various reasons) detuned my MZJ to by a whole tone to F, C, G, D - but FINGERED as if it were G - so you hear it in F (just in case you tried to play along exactly facepalm

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

I’m glad BillyG did an entry on this thread—I completely missed this party back in Jun/Jul.  Like I was abducted by aliens or something,  lol. ali.jpg

I just watched the previous entries.  @stringy  @ABitRusty  @ELCBK  @JohnG  @Katie M  Really great job, all smile

@SharonC -

Thank You! 

@BillyG -

I don't know what you did while you were gone, but I need some of it! 

JUST BEAUTIFUL! 

I LOVE the changes you made & love it lower, also. 

Have quite a few things to get off my plate, but think I would love to learn this! 

Great you reanimated this Party! 

 

MORE, MORE!

Thank you @SharonC @elcbk and @ABitRusty 

Yup, got some time on my hands now, although still busy.  However, working from home allows me to schedule my personal time much better.  Cool.

That's a lovely tune, Billy. 

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach

@BillyG - Not only beautifully composed, but well played, too. I found it very soul-filled.
