The Harp Has But Six Strings

Some people create doodles on paper - letting their hand pass along the page freely, letting the shapes and colors easily emerge. I doodle on my guitar. My best doodles are done when I'm deep in thought about something else, and I let my fingers glide along without any planning or conscious thought.

My doodles help me relax. Sometimes, they express things which are beyond my abilities with words. I've never recorded a doodle before now, but here, for my patient and indulgent readers is a short sample.

(This doodle is played with my guitar tuned down a half-step, so it is played in C, but voiced in B.)

Thanks. I assure you that I'm at least as self-concious as you. If you've got music inside of you, post it.
