Mary's Boy Child (Harry Belafonte style)
« on: December 20, 2019, 09:36:35 PM »
Long ago, when I was a solo guitar player and singer, I began performing this song. A few years ago, I recorded it using an onboard style, using just the guitar segment, and tried to emulate the song I played so many years ago. I think I came pretty darned close.

Hi Gary,
I think you did an excellent job of emulating a guitar player's version of this song.
Well done! Loved the "deep" voice - very "Harry Belafonte" like/
Do you remember the onboard style you used ?
Thanks,

Mark

GARY, a beautiful performance of this Classic Christmas song!  :)  I also play the Classical nylon string & steel string acoustic guitars & your "keyboard guitar" playing is excellent!
