Dedicated to the memory of Phillip C. Nelson

On September 20th, 1999, my father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. The next morning, I improvised this track live and in real time, one take, mistakes and all. I didn't even tune the guitar or set recording levels. The playing is nothing to brag about, but the emotion is genuine.
The setup is a Fender Stratocaster through an old Guyatone overdrive, a Boss FV-50 volume pedal, a Boss DD-3 delay, a SansAmp, an Akai Headrush and a Korg SDD-1000 delay in the aux sends of a Spirit Folio board. The synth in the loop was played with my elbow.

  Great piece, Tim. With genuine artistic expresssion, where the emotion is real-time and sincere, there are no mistakes in my opinion. If there are, then it means the player is thinking too much about the piece and the notes rather than pouring his heart out through the fretboard.
