In preparing The Ancestor CD, I had one piece that was intended to go on the album, but didn’t make the cut. It needs some fixing up, and hopefully I’ll have it ready for publication later. So it’s been sitting on my computer rotting for a couple months. Then I realized that just because it’s not ready to sell doesn’t mean I can’t share it on my blog! So here’s the piece that didn’t make the cut for my new CD.
Lunch Bucket is my daughter’s nickname, and I have a tradition of writing a lullaby for each of my kids. After writing one for Lunch Bucket, I realized that the melody fits with the chord progression to Pachelbel’s Canon in D. So I made a little medley that is basically a variation on Canon in D, though it’s really Canon in C when I play it.
Oh, and I should tell you up front – this is NOT a solo. It takes at least three people. If I ever play this one in an up-close concert, I might even have everyone who can play Canon in C come up and jam along!
