Here’s an instrumental song called, “D-Day.” The song has nothing to do with the Normandy Invasion of World War II. The title is all about key of the song – D.
Here’s the back story to the song: I have been playing around with this basic instrumental since the late 1980’s. Back then, I owned a fun digital delay pedal (Digitech PDS 2020) which had a feature, reminiscent of the old reel to reel players, called “sound on sound.” In non-technical terms, this feature would allow you to store and record short musical phrases. For example, I would play a two note bass line, then add a repeating chord and with little effort, I had backing music to accompany on my guitar. The song is a favorite with jam buddies because of its simplicity and flexibility.
On this version, I play all the instruments. I added a little introduction and had fun playing around with the arrangement. It’s the first recording I have been able to use my mountain dulcimer and my recently acquired conga drums.
Please feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions or comments.
