DOWNLOAD-ONLY. In this Homespun download-only lesson, the father-and-son duo play some of their favorite songs and show the simple but elegant guitar arrangements that underlie their unique brand of Americana music. They discuss their influences and approaches to songwriting and provide insights into their music for aspiring pickers and singer/songwriters. The Gilmores play arrangements of two of Jimmie Dales best-loved songs "Another Colorado" and "Blue Shadows" (co-written with Hal Ketchum), as well as "Reunion" by Jo Carol Pierce. Butch Hancock, Jimmie Dales good friend and mentor, wrote "Just a Wave Not The Water" and "My Minds Got a Mind of Its Own." They also demo Colin Gilmores up-tempo rocker, "The Way We Are," which was recorded by The Flatlanders. This lesson is perfect for intermediate guitarists and aspiring songwriters looking for great new material, along with simple embellishments that will spruce up your own songs. 75 min.
