That was very nice.
In 1998 I was working at Old Dominion University. My office was part of the student union. I left the office one day to go get lunch and heard the most amazing music coming from downstairs. I thought it was some recording, but found out it was a live performance. I assumed at first it was just some busker, but it turned out to be Richard Gilewitz who was playing a concert at ODU later that evening.

I asked him if he had ever heard of Slack Key to which he educated me that Slack Key uses open G tuning - exactly what he was playing. I just sat there spellbound.

Fair winds and following seas Cyril!
very beautiful, Thank you!
Bla's dad, Gabby, was/is a musical giant here in the mid Pacific.

Never heard this, or of this before. Wow. Amazing. Thank you for the info Bill & Rebecca! {#Biggrin}
I love slack key. This is outstanding.

I don't know who came up with slack key tunings, but they made the world a better place.
Wow! Nicely different, but most excellent!
