So I was trying to keep myself from writing anymore until I finished recording the album, but I couldn't help myself. It's another fingerpicking instrumental using the alternate tuning DADF#AD. Called it Stray Mutt because the song likes to wander. Hope you enjoy.
Here's a link of me playing this on youtube:

You are very creative on your guitar. I'm glad you let it out. Thank you, I'm going to go tune mine now. Maybe I'll find a mutt of my own.

From the first note, always transported to a most enjoyable sensorial location.
Dig the break and harmonics section, as well as the ensuing rhythmic build-up.
Cheers August~

I have difficulty playing with the conventional tuning, so I'm full of admiration when you change the tuning and come up with something as lovely as this..... it does have an eastern flovour to it I have to say, which makes it very attractive, regards `M

It's been a while since I've been in listening mode but it's a lazy Sunday here, a cool Spring morning, the coffee is on and your finger picking is a brilliant companion. Impressive expression, it felt very fluid, not by the numbers at all and a pretty charming tune overall. Yer a good lil' picker, aintcha...

Good improvisation & skillful guitarworks.
Yes, that's always the case. We always get something new when we get to the keyboards or guitars. So he "inventory" will always be replenished. Cheers.

I got totally lost in this. I'm a huge fan of Kelly-Joe Phelps and the like (in awe, really), and this put me in mind of that. I got a wandering melancholy straight off, and was hooked.

Woah really cool fingerpicking. And nice use of an alternate tuning (I think)! Harmonies sound nice too.

in my mind is running a old home movie projector reel. two young girls are playing in colourful autumn leaves. their hair gleams in the setting sun & they sport the kind of unbridled smiles that only children have. it makes me long for an autumn afternoon. playing in the leaves.

This would be right at home in a movie set in Seattle or Portland. I get a real sense of openness and warmth from this tune.
