Odd meter southwestern piece featuring slide guitar. Cinematic soundscape that creates images of the southwest desert. 7/4 time leaves you a bit unsettled. Mississippi Delta passion, heartbreak, crime or chase in progress, dark humor. Spaghetti Western vibe, lonely cowboy or stubborn boyfriend. Instrumental, Folk, Contemporary Folk
Very fast slapstick comedy music. Minor key but very funny. Would work well in an old sped up silent comedy film. Chase scene. Charlie Chaplin would have used this if he could have. Instrumental, Folk, Folk Dramatic
Southwestern spaghetti western style groove. Fun, cinematic, warm and touching. Soulful Gypsy melody begins at 2.41 min. Great for western mysteries, cowboys, duels, High Noon tension, cattle drives, mending fences, romantic comedy. Sweet melody, nostalgic, soulful, with plenty of good times ahead. Instrumental, Folk, Contemporary Folk
Uplifting piece featuring fingerpicked guitar and harmonica. Light and positive theme with chords that have a familiar but fresh sound. Would work in a romantic comedy or advertisement. Images of innocense, youth, first love, spring breeze. Instrumental, Folk, Finger-Picked Guitar
A majestic sounding chord progression played on an solo acoustic guitar. Could work well in a montage scene. Enjoying a happy life as time goes by. Perfectly contented and happy, maybe even a little wry grin emerges. Life is filled with ironies, might as well kick back and enjoy each day. Instrumental, Folk, Folk Dramatic
