As a kid, those last few hours half asleep before getting up and opening presents was always an excited sleepy state. This instrumental is that final dreamy feeling before it’s finally time to wake the parents up and get the party started. Merry Christmas!!
I’ve done 166 songs before this one and haven’t done an acoustic instrumental yet. And as my urbane set up concludes, today is the day. This song has been evolving in warm ups at acoustic gigs for a while, so it was bound to end up on one of my song a days. I decided to do all the orchestration with just the acoustic guitar. Although the keyboard strings were tempting me (as they always do).
I named it “Asheville Evening” in tribute to the rainy haze outside my studio door. Thanks for listening!
