One of my favorite Paul Simon tunes – and sometimes, one of my favorite times to head to the basement, grab my acoustic, and forget about life for a while.
A glass of wine and my guitar, a song that’s been bothering me for a couple days or weeks. A setlist that needs tweaking, or maybe just an album I’ve been meaning to get to. These are the things I get to do on those nights when Tina goes to bed before me, and I make it a priority to get a few minutes – be it 15, 60, or the rare 120 (when I lose all track of time and pay for it in the morning)
Tonight – it’s the Beatles, Jason Isbell, John Prine, Jerry Garcia, and Derek Trucks who keep me company. I’ve got my jumbo Epiphone in my hand, and am looking around for my capo – it’s here somewhere.
