Songs: The Hours After Dusk (AGF CD 1)

About the Music: "I wrote this song in 1995 when the oldest of my four children was 12 and the youngest was 8.  Yup…they’re that close together in age. You can imagine how hectic things could be around this house at that time (and for the next 10 years!)   The song is about how peaceful and precious the night can be after all the bustle that goes on during the daylight hours.  The “old rhymes”:  “Sweet and Low” and “Breathe and blow”  are from an Alfred Tennyson poem. I could have submitted something a little more groovin’, but I’m hoping that listeners really enjoy the gentleness of this song and how the acoustic guitar arrangement is an integral part of it. "

Recording Information: "Recorded August 2002 at home with a Yamaha AW2816 digital recorder. 1983 Martin D-35 mic’d with an AKG3000B. Vocals:  AKG4000B. The piano sound comes from a Roland XV3080 synthesizer patch."

Instruments Used:  1983 Martin D-35 and Roland XV3080 Synthesizer

Tuning: "The tune is written in Em but played with the capo on 1 (ultimately F minor)."
