“Peace, Brothers, Peace” ~ C: Nigel Gatherer

One of the roots to this is to be found here:

Nigel said I could mess around with it and it could be a joint effort, as he composed it without an instrument, on the fly, and he wasn’t completely happy with the A-part, which I was a little unsure about to start. As I have had it take me just a few different ways, but not far, it remains Nigel’s composition, and I thought it best to see how he first gave it before I add my take on it. No doubt Nigel may have a different take on it himself, a week later living live fully and acquiring new experiences. So many things can affect the music, as music can affect so many things. I enjoyed playing this and hope that anyone else that gives it a go will too.

The second ending just happened, and I like it, but I am partial to such things… ;-)
