ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is the first single in a collection of songs/compositions I wrote in 2015 known as the Nomad of the North collection. Why is it called a collection? Because many of the songs are in a tuning that is a bit odd. C# minor tuning. This sing isn't in the tuning but many of the 12 songs in the collection are. Originally this song was called "The Etude From Hell." But the song wasn't good enough as it was so I came upon a very strong melody that made it shine to me, and everyone I played the demo for as well! Many folks ask me: "where were you from 2006-2018?" I tell them I took a break from indie music to play Spanish classical guitar. Not just some but a wicked lot of Spanish classical guitar! How did I return to indie? In 2015 I developed symptoms of a very rare and classical guitar ending movement disorder known as Focal Hand Dystonia. Within a month or so I couldn't play a single classical tune, the right hand was useless. But, by the grace of God I could still pick! Rather than fall into a pit of despair I wondered,"should I write again." This song was the 2nd song that was a result of that wonder. Today I am proud to be doing this, grateful to be doing this. Plus, it is well known that my rock/blues playing is well far superior to my classical playing! So if life throws you a curve like Dystonia, I am here to tell you-you can survive!
