Here's a song with a major story behind it. :-D

When I was growing up, a lot of musical influences came from the music my parents listened to. We're talking bands like The Moody Blues, U2, The Outfield, ..and on and on. But another major influence in myself becoming a composer was my father. Dad played piano, but mostly he'd pull out his acoustic after coming home from work and sit out on the couch and play. As a kid I used to just lay out on the carpet while listening to his playing, and one song in particular always caught my interest. It was a song he wrote called "Coming Home", and it was a spiritual tune about longing to be with our Father in heaven.

Fast forward about maybe 15 years later when I'm in Audio Engineering school trying desperately to find a guitar player/singer for my recording project. For some reason Dad's song kept playing in my head, so I convinced him to drive up to my school and let me record him playing his nylon guitar and voice to his song he wrote back when I was 6 or 7 years old. It was a great day, and after I had mixed it down completely in the studio, I took the master back to my dorm.

I always knew that if I could get a chance, I'd want to redo the music as an instrumental. I knew I wanted there to be a piano and violin accompaniment to Dad's guitar playing, so I sampled his nylon pickings and created...well...this. This is my tribute to my father's original simple acoustic guitar solo.

The beginning includes my dad's voice counting down into his mic before he began playing. I also mixed in the original recording at the end of him singing just to pay tribute to his original song further. The record "pop" you hear before his voice kicks in is on purpose. It's supposed to sound like an old recording kicking in on a record player as his voice appears to sing from a distance as it fades away.

Enjoy :-D
