Over the summer, I saw Andy McKee perform at the Newton theater here in northern New Jersey. This is a man who has been doing fingerstyle acoustic guitar for some time and is amazingly talented. The song of his that turned me on to this style of music even existed is one of his most popular songs and has garnered millions of views on YouTube. It’s called Rylynn. Much of what I’ve been writing since then has been significantly influenced by him and his music. This is the first time I’m trying a repeating pattern with a melody over top of it.
