Mood For a Day - Steve
A Day is a classical song which was written by Steve Howe
while he was with Yes. It appears on both the Fragile
(Studio) and Yes Songs (Live) albums. This song
is always dedicated to the memory of my friend Chris Franklin,
who was attending Peabody Conservatory of Music in the
late 70's when he gave me a few tips and showed me how
to play it. Chris was a great friend and a great
musician, guitar player, and songwriter. He toured
the world playing guitar with the Bertie Higgins Band
who had the hit song "Key Largo". One of the
highlights of his life was when he played at Madison Square
Garden, NYC. Chris left this world way too soon (in 2005
at age 45). This version is my take on the
song, slightly different than Mr. Howe's. I hope
you enjoy it. TURN IT UP! Better yet, put
on your headphones. Please don't play this through
lap top or notebook speakers!
This is an audio file I recorded
a few years ago. I had an idea and wanted to hear how this song would
sound recorded directly into the audio mode of my Casio digital camera
played on a Yamaha acoustic guitar. What you hear is the result.
No effects, no second takes. Is it perfect? Heck no, but it
will give you an idea of my playing ability and technique. Please
give it a listen with head phones, or powered external speakers.
To me it sounds terrible playing through laptop built in speakers.
