FTA #4 “Mindy”, winter shows added

Hope to see some folks at the upcoming shows, starting with this Friday 12/31 ringing in the New Year.  Check out the upcoming shows page for details…

The fourth “From the Archive” is a solo Mindy from July, 2009.  It would be about five months later that I’d use Mindy as the opening song of my Great Unknown album, but that night I was just trying out a new arrangement of the tune to get a feel for it.  I used to play it in a somber dropped D minor but felt like the lyrics and music were disconnected so I wanted to take another crack at the music.  Inspired by Martin Sexton’s bouncy right hand approach, I slapped a capo on the second fret but left the low E open to keep a steady low-end with my thumb against the busier finger-slappin’ throughout.  It clicked, and it has become one of my favorite tunes to perform.

Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
