Calico Pie has arrived
I have listened to it over and over. The material is quirky, the chords are unique, the melodies are delightful (if I do say so myself).
It may be just me, but as I attempt to maneuver in and around this California traffic, I find that this music just puts me in a good space. I smile. The songs make me want to dance while at the same time they are lullabies which relax me into a dreamland. It’s hard to explain. My heart feels light. I feel like there’s good hope for the future. I hope these songs can do the same for you.
Most of the songs have Jazz/Folk/Renaisance chord changes. (it was really hard finding a guitar player who could play them–Tom Duarte! My hero!) One of the songs, however has just one chord: The Cummerbund.
If you want to play along, the whole piece is over a Gsus4. (capo up three and fret the strings o-2-2-2-o-o) The time changes are 4/4 – 3/4 – 5/4 – 4/4 – 7/4. You can do it!!!!!
