Songs: Movin' On (AGF CD Vol 1)


About the Music: "I'm just starting to write my own tunes, and this is uptempo one and fun to play. A lot of fingerstyle tunes tend to be slower so I thought this might provide some interesting contrast. I wanted to write something uptempo, with a bluesy feel, but which wasnt restricted to a 12 bar format. I came up with the intro first and worked from there. Inspired in part by Howard Emerson's wonderful playing and writing. It has a propulsive Bassline, and I have been trying to step my playing and writing up a notch, hence the title."

Instruments Used: "The guitar used was an Alan Arnold, Phoenix Jz (UK Luthier), number 58, October 2006, no cutaway.

Top: European Spruce
B/S: Ziricote
Neck and Binding : Curly Ash
Headplate, purfling, Rosette : Ziricote"

Tuning: Played in Open C tuning - CGCGCE
