Bass Solo: 1-20-17

Years ago I bought an acoustic-electric guitar bass on e-bay, bought a new set of strings for it, and never got around to playing it or changing the strings. Recently the thought of getting out the bass and installing the new strings just came to me, and this is the music that came out as soon as I had strung it. It wasn’t planned, at all. It does express a certain perception. I hope I’m wrong.

Don Quixote’s Dream

Don Quixote’s Dream” was written by Canadian Singer-Songwriter Tim Harrison (thanks, Tim!), and I’ve adapted it. French psychoanalyst Francosie Davoine has written “Fighting Melancholia: Don Quixote’s Teaching,” finding depths of meaning in the story for mental illness and recovery. It’s a great story, and a great song.

Remember Oh Thou Man

Richard Thompson played this song on his great “Thousand Years of Popular Music” album, by Thomas Ravencroft (1588-1635). To my ear it could be older, a Troubadour song or evolved from one, circa 12th century. This song has become the foundation of a presentation I do on psychology, spirituality, and music.

I Needed You

Most romantic relationships don’t become permanent, or even long-term, yet they become part of who we are, or who we become, in their giving and taking.  This song is part appreciation, part mourning.
