A Touch of Spring


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:04:04
description:
That feeling when Spring makes a surprise visit towards the end of Winter...

This is the first song I've composed on this beautiful instrument. Her name is Lady June Janelle.

It's a Folkroots originally owned by June Keck and hand-painted by Janelle Johnson (janellejohnson.com). And somehow this little gem ended up on eBay and I bought it for $250!

The painting is signed by Janelle so I was able to contact her. Sadly, I learned from Janelle that June passed away several years ago from Alzheimers.

I am dedicating this song to June and Janelle. Thank you so much for a priceless wonder!

@terry-wilson, @mandy Thank you so much for your cheers. This is one of those songs that just seemed to flow - it took less than a day to finish then a bazillion takes to get the final track (audio).  The video was a demo for another FOTMD member asking about the recording.

Mandy, the Tshirt was a gift from my daughter but I would bet it would be on Amazon.

howdy

Touch of Spring.  Wow.  Absolutely beautiful song.  Watching both hands working together as one is just mesmerizing.   

I had t p do a double listen on this one, and then again tomorriw.  You know, some songs just hit me this way.  Kinda like the first time I heard , "River, Take Me Along."

Thank you.

Bravo, my friend!  Exquisitely composed and executed.  More, please.  happys

Hey Susan!  

I'm so glad you're here! I tried to wait to have you show me 1-3-5 but, alas I failed. I checked it out on the interwebz.  blinders 

Living under my rock, I never heard of 1-3-5 so this song would not exist w/o YOU! It's not quite there yet but it's only about a month old. Still getting it under my fingers...

See you in a couple of weeks!

(Are any other Old Growthers on here to your knowledge?)

John Tipton:

Great song and great playing!

Hi John! Thanks so much for your kindness!

I posted the audio and a couple of members were asking if I used a looper or overdubs to get the sound. So I sat down and did a quick recording to demonstrate. I muffed it a couple of times (including a critical harmonic- naturally lol) but again it was just to demonstrate the technique.

 

Thanks again John hi5

Great composition & VERY well performed !  I own a Folkroots also & I love the deep rich sound. 

Thank you, Marc, I really appreciate your comment.

The listing did not say the brand but I figured if nothing else, it would look great hanging in my studio. When I opened the old guitar case it came in, I was not disappointed. smile

 

Then I strummed it...grin

Jim Hedman:

Mellow box, mellow tune.  Enjoyed it!

 

I've been hawking e-bay again (durn DAD struck again it seems) and would have to say you did well.  Was it at auction or a buy it now item?

Thanks very much, Jim. I would have responded earlier but I am at the final day of the Menucha Dulcimer Festival in Corbett, OR. It’s a beautiful setting on 100 acres high above the Columbia River Gorge. The food was fantastic and the programs were outstanding!

To answer your question, this was actually an auction. I spotted her with no bids but there were 5 days left. I waited until the final few minutes of the auction and placed the default bid price of $250 and won it. I couldn’t believe my fortune!
