“Cold War” is the first piece I have written and recorded in DADGAD tuning. I first encountered that tuning when listening to Pierre Bensusan and some of Bert Jansch’s recordings from the 70’s. Took some time to get comfortable with it – but “Cold War” is a tune I’m really proud of!

It’s a piece in three parts: first there is a melancholic melody played on my old Lowden F22 and repeated once with a mellotron whistle part and finally with both whistle and cello. The second part is more optimistic and full of hope. Again its my old Lowden but with banjo and more mellotron and some real pennywhistle at the end. The whole thing ends with a short solo guitar piece during the credits.

I really hope you like it and please share it with everyone you know!
