Gunnar Salyer - Worcester for Wear

Here’s our boy with another original Worcester for Wear. I love this. Kinda Leo Kottke-ish.

Well thanks! I posted this one previously when I wrote it, but I posted it again on this guitar which I got to play while in Nashville. It’s an Olson, owned by Michael Card, one of my musical heroes.

Very, very nice! And I can hum it in my head all day long!

I was stunned to see it is possible to make music without wearing finger picks.:grin:

@Dragonslayer, that was a fun tune! It’s a catchy melody, and skips along at at great tempo. I love hearing melody lines down low for a change. Thanks for sharing @MissMaggie !

Thanks all!! I composed it on the idea of mimicking a looper pedal, and kind of adding layers as I go along. Youtube search Tim Hawkins guitar meltdown for the specific video that inspired me.

Thanks! Facial expressiveness is actually something I value very much, and I always try to make it look like I’m enjoying myself (or maybe being alternately stung by bees and electrocuted…) rather than being too stoic
