Album Notes
Cecil’s Bench My neighbourhood has been the Beach area of Toronto for the past 20 years. People who’ve lost loved ones sometimes dedicate city benches to them, and so it was with Cecil’s Bench, where I wrote many a tune on it and other benches watching the crowds go by.

My Marie My buddy Nelson Milley and I played this off the top of our heads pretty much as you hear it into a reel-to-reel recorder (remember those?). How musicians gel which each other is a mystery, but it’s very cool when it happens because it’s rare.

Beethoven’s Hair A demo I knocked off around 1999, I rediscovered going through tape transfers for this album. I wanted to try my hand at scoring so I did five string parts and assorted extras to fill it out. The LSO will have to wait.

Lindy A tuning I was in while learning a Don Ross song resulted in this melody, amongst others. Why it’s called Lindy is anyone’s guess.

Ring That Bell I must have composed twenty or thirty songs in DADGAD tuning. This was one of the first, from 1994.

Winter Ride I got up early one morning near Christmas time after a snowstorm and wrote my obligatory Yuletide tune.

Hayden Cadence I named this after friend’s first son, a fairly recent effort from 2007. Drop-D tuning all the way.

Morning Prize Another instant song with Nelson. I played the chord changes and he made up lyrics. Morning prize is a great phrase, and the main reason
I finished it for this album.

Simon Says Dance What started out as a finger exercise became a vaguely Celtic workout on my classical guitar.

Lonely Parade A blues fragment lead to this tune which expanded geometrically to include the tale of a serial dater who’s always looking but never finding what she wants. Sometimes you gotta make a stand.

Absent Friends (for lmv) Being an air force brat means you say goodbye to many people growing up, so after a while it’s rendered in your bones that nothing lasts – not good, not bad, just the way things are. Still, once in a while you feel like this.

A Springbreak Written in the spring of course, in DADEAD tuning. This one was tough to play because I felt the way I had played it before I actually recorded it turned out to be too slow. A better player could have done it a lot sooner than I did.
