Here is a little tune I wrote about the little town of Motherwell, Scotland where my Grandparents grew up.  Recorded on my JCL 40th Anniversary Edition.  Recorded in GarageBand, but it doesn't sound too bad.

My Grandmother was also born & raised in Motherwell coming to Canada in the very early 1900's

Thanks Andrew.  I have discovered the JCL loves DADGAD and other altered turnings, so I have been messing around a little bit lately.  My grandparents came through Ellis Island in 1920 with $21 to his name.  I got the records from Ellis Island a few years ago.  They settled in Chicago where a few others from the "clan" were already established.  Grandpa built houses for 5 years or so but hated Chicago because it was so bloody cold like Scotland.  So he headed out to California in 1926, and that's why I'm here.

Hi, just listened to it and played it for the missus.  We both really enjoyed it.  I love the sound of the guitar and how you brought it out with your recording setup.  I believe that  your JCL anniversary guitar and my L-07 are fairly similar in dimensions and woods, etc. so I'm especially interested in how their voices compare.

Thanks for posting the tune.

Thanks L07.  I just recorded straight into my IPad, no mic or anything added to the sound. Next time I visit my son in Carmel I will try to record it with his mic.  The recording doesn't sound as nice as the guitar live, but it's pretty good for an IPad.  The JCL is a fabulous guitar.  I have played quite a few luthier built guitars costing thousands more that didn't sound any better to my ears.

Very nice tune and beautiful sounding guitar, although I believe its more the player than the instrument it's self.
