The Still of Morning

Free (for personal use only) high-quality download on SoundCloud.

I wrote this song for the heroes of morning. Whether you’re an early morning runner, crossfitter, writer, or just going to work — our genesis starts, uninterrupted, in the early morning stillness while the coffee still brews.

I used to be a runner, and even though it was tough to get out of bed, I embraced the early morning preparation. I was only training to be better than yesterday.

These days, with a two-year-old, my mornings are a little different, but I’m still striving to be better than yesterday.

The Still of Morning is very easy to play with the exception of one chord at 1:26 of the video. Overall, it is very suitable for beginner guitar players.

The guitar tab is two pages long and played straight through without repeats. The Still of Morning is played in standard tuning. Enjoy, the guitar tab is available below:
