In the Bleak Midwinter

Here is a video of me playing a song that I arranged awhile back for the A Christmas to Cure Cancer 4 album that was released in 2008.  I have always loved this song growing up and when asked to do a song for the album this sounded like a great one to arrange!

If you head to, you can hear the original recording in its entirety.

I was able to do all of the recording myself using Adobe Audition, a Yamaha MW10 USB audio board and a Shure SM81 microphone.  It also allowed me to break out my cello and lay down a few tracks which is always fun!

If you like the song you can purchase the album at and remember all of the money from the sale of the album goes to support cancer research!

NOTE: If you are wondering what guitar I am playing in the video it is actually my late Dad’s guitar.  It is an Aspen (now defunct) AD28-SH and was manufactured in Japan in the 1970s.  It has an incredible sound with a great bass response that I feel rivals higher end Martins and has quickly become my favorite guitar to play over my Ibanez AW300CE!

    Andrew, I just came on this video of you playing Dad’s guitar (I was checking out The Unison website off my website’s link)!! I must admit, you make it sing in a way Dad nor I ever could!! So good to hear it played again!! I can remember when I bought it for him, when we were dating and still teenagers, so he and I could play basic chords in leading singing in our “God Love’s You” programs!! Bless you and Love you, Mom!!
