When you live in a tourist area, the seasons aren't just marked by the weather - there's also a change in the feel of the place, with a decrease in crowds, there's an increase in the awareness of community. This is just a reflection of the change, as the villages nearby close down for the winter. To me, this feels like an "early jiguma" song - simple, but hopefully an interesting listen. I'm playing everything here except drums and percussion, covered by Darcy and Quincy respectively.

  1. I get what you mean by “early Jiguma…”

    I really like the chorus on this… both the melody and the beautiful vocal delivery.

    The ambient guitar licks are especially tasty to these old ears.

  2. Looks like I forgot to upload the chart.
