Guitar is played by Fanne (Johnv). He's been visiting New Zealand and this was his last night in NZ which he spent at my house. We had a short play and this was the last tune. Completely improvised on the spot inspiration. Others welcome to join in. Note: NO SET TEMPO!

Wade Ha! My wife had gone to bed (Music widow) and made it clear she didn't want to be disturbed, so this was the last tune and I was playing as quietly as possible. Normally I'd be a bit more "up front", but this sounds OK! +1

Acousticeg I for one don't like to be told to play quietly. lol It would seen to defeat the purpose. But I have found that the end result can make for some very dynamic music that rolls and flows as this does. +1
wow a great jam by you both Wade...;););)+1

Wade Very kind of you to have a listen and comment. A few more months and we'll all meet again! Till then... +1
What sound depth and what a wonderful duet! A joy to hear to again to the expressiveness of your great phrasing enhanced by that splendid acoustic accompaniment.+1

Wade You're always so kind in your comments. I've got to be honest and say that the guitar isn't an acoustic, but sounds that way with no boxes to modify the sound. Very interesting guitar a "silent" with no "body". It comes apart for traveling, doesn't weigh much or take up much room. Very clever, but needs amplification. +1
So chill, along with your impeccable playing skills. Welcome back :)+1

Wonderful track of you two ;o)
I followed John`s trip to New Zealand as far as possible on facebook. Nice that you both met and made music together; o)

Wade Thanks. I don't do facebook, so have no idea what he may have said. Hopefully he had a good time although the weather here was awful. Worst April we have ever had. Wet and windy. It's usually our driest and calmest month of the year. +1

Wade I used to go there often! Lovely town and very nice people. Back in the early 1970s I was trading with the Seri Indians who were moved from Isla Del Tibruon to the mainland. They were harvesting large shellfish and selling the muscle as scallops (which they were not) and throwing everything else away. The shells often contained lovely black pearls, which I got them to look for and purchased them. They lived in a village about 40 miles north of Bahia de Kino. Three years ago I was on the Baha peninsula at Bahia de Los Angeles. You never know...I may come your way in the future! +1

jussef63 Awesomeeeee, indeed I know a lot of Seri culture and I know bahía de kino, beautiful place, I only been living 6 years here though It is not my native state but here I am hahah, Let´s hpe we can meet soon +1
May 03 2018 11:17:07
Wade I sure hope the Seri from Tibruon have "settled" and mellowed out a bit. they were moved from the island at gun point by the government. They lived in squalor not caring. Where they were on the coast was not seen as their home. More like a prison camp. Hopefully things have changed. +0
