The Carpenter’s Son (instrumental)

Since it’s Christmas. Nearly…

Basically variations on the tune I wrote as a setting for Housman’s ‘The Carpenter’s Son’. (Which you might consider more appropriate for an Easter post, but since this version doesn’t include the words, that’s not so much of an issue.) The first section is solo guitar, a slightly more decorated version of the accompaniment for the song, which aims for some of the tone of an oud or desert lute. The second section is a variation on the same tune, with guitar plus overdubbed mountain dulcimer and bouzouki, which may sound a strange combination but gives it a sort of medieval ambience.
