While My Guitar Gently Weeps

This gentleman covered the entire Beatles catalog a couple of years ago. ¬†You can find him here. I am going to be away next week. Some posts may appear, but I will be even more slow than normal responding to comments. (And that’s slow!)  

Friday Music: The American Dollar

The American Dollar has great tracks for writing and for just listening. Spacious, meditative, and colorful, music. Another discovery made via Spotify, which continues to impress with its recommendations.
