together we are stronger than apart

This is a quick and rough recording of one of my tunes - part of a song swap with my friend Andy.

It was recorded using my iRiver MP3 player and edited (trimmed - no overdubs as you'll hear) using Cool Edit Pro.

The guitar is my Guild M20, and the tuning DGDDAE.

The plan is to put some melodica and maybe a bit of mandolin on top, then think about some lyrics.

Listen: together we are stronger than apart
