Ode to the Season

Free mp3 download.

At last I finished the final and 5th song for my Holiday/Christmas EP, Ode to Season. I didn’t have a plan in late September, just the thought that I’d like to release a seasonal EP in late November. While I’ve missed that mark, It should be available in December. I’m pretty good at audio mastering my tracks, but this will best be left to a professional.

I didn’t have a plan for the songs either. I just hoped that they would flow to me over the course of a couple of months, and they did. I wrote three, and created arrangements for two traditional English carols:

In Grace

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

Coventry Carol

The Holly in the Windy Hedge

and lastly, Ode to the Season.

Gear Used

For Ode to the Season, I usd my Cordoba C7 Cedar. It has a big warm sound, and is the perfect compliment to my GK Studio. You can find a current list of my gear here.

Ode to the Season is best for intermediate guitar players and up. The guitar tab is only two pages long and beautifully written. You’ll essentially play the long passage within the repeat brackets twice, then add the end melody.

Enjoy, it’s only slightly challenging. The guitar tab is available below:

 Ode to the Season is played one whole step down. Your tuning is as follows from low to high: D G C F A D
