Play the song


Bill Jamieson takes a great 'texas blues-gospel' style solo, on this wonderful and simple composition by Glen Halls. Interestingly, the entire song is 'in the key of D', with all chords chosen as D diatonic/modal harmonies, so that the song could easily be played by Indian Musicians on Indian instruments, tuned to the D Drone..

Sheet music is available for this song. Please Contact sound of light music for details.
