Eternal Charade - Guitar Instrumental - 08/10/15 01:26 PM

I've been recovering from a mild stroke and my guitar playing ability is significantly diminished ... might return, might not. Also, we've been dealing with the death of our oldest son and several other issues. So, we've been away for quite some time.

I am playing nothing on this song ... all BIAB tracks. I felt the need to compose something and get a new song posted and this is what I came up with. You can applaud Brent Mason for the guitar work. I take credit only for the concept and arrangement. Hope you like it.

Di sends her best with love and hugs to all. She's in the middle of a major medical issue, also.

We've missed you guys a bunch! Here's the link:

Hi Al and Di,

Good to see and hear from you again, even if it's just now and then. You've been in our minds though, during your absence.
The music is beautiful.
We hope you'll both recover soon.

Hi guys. Sorry for all of your struggles. Keep playin' that guitar Al. People can accomplish incredible recoveries. In the meantime, Brent is a great substitute. He's my favorite "in the box" guitarist. Best to both of you. You guys are a joy on the forum. Keep in touch. Take care. Greg

Hope you feel better soon and find peace with all that's going on.

In the meanwhile, very lovely track - very expressive and sweet listening, and you do use Brent Mason's playing to great advantage!

Greg said it so nicely. Couldn't phrase it better.
Very enjoyable listen.

Everything sounds great to us. Sometimes in the hands of talent it is
made so obvious how tremendous RT's are. Pleasant listen indeed.

Best to both of you. Stick around...it could be good for your soul.

Y'all are in our thoughts.

Brent Mason. What a player.

I'm sorry to hear of your struggles and health issues. Sending prayers to both you and Di.

This sounds so good. Like the studio musicians sat down and cut the song. Excellent job:)

Hi Everyone ...

A big thanks to all who have come by and left those really nice words. I'm giving a group thank you ... hope that's. Typing is a bit of a challenge right now.

Appreciate everyone's kind thoughts and well-wishes. Getting better all the time!
