November 8, 2014 was a Saturday.
Waking up with a tune in my head on a morning when I could actually take the time to sit with my guitar and get notes down on paper was a gift.
Three days and dozens of stolen moments later, the bulk of “Before Breakfast” was done.
“Before Breakfast” dominated my repertoire for many months. However, it wasn’t until I added an intro/outro lick sometime last Summer that my compositon finally felt complete.
A couple of other pieces – fingerpicked arrangements of “Ain’t Misbehavin'” and “All My Loving” – eventually bumped “Before Breakfast” from my playlist. But this past Sunday – March 6, 2016 – I decided it was time to capture my “latest” original acoustic guitar instrumental in zeros and ones.
So, I did… and here it is!
“Before Breakfast” – composed and performed by Eric Sinclair.
This piece reminds me a lot of Pete Seeger’s “Goofing Off Suite” – a song that he often played while on buses, trains, waiting for someone to arrive, etc . . . Another great guitar piece Eric!
