Finding Your Way No Matter What

Finding Your Way No Matter WhatI recently came so close to my plan of fleeing to Costa Rica and faking my own death. I was in Nicaragua for three months which borders on Costa Rica. Just didn’t quite make it over there. I totally would have faked my own death if I had made it to Costa Rica…If only…

So, I guess I’ll still keep my identity for now. Alive and under the legal name, “Nigel Cook”. Whatever that is…

I did manage to record a little tune though while in Guatemala…This is essentially a live recording. Well, two live tracks. Almost no editing. The melody was improvised.

If you listen carefully, you might be able to hear the fire crackling in the background…or at one point, you can hear my friend clearing the phlegm out of his throat. Yum!

Recorded on a cheap classical guitar purchased in Guatemala. Somehow, I managed to get a decent recording out of this guitar but I should have just thrown it in the fireplace. Crackle, crackle…

At the end of the song, after I laugh a bit, and you’ll hear a sound from something I threw on the table. Can you identify what object made that sound? Let me know. If you guess correctly, I’ll buy you a mango margarita. You’ll have to come to Puerto Vallarta to collect your prize though.

Nacho del Sol

I'm Nigel. A wandering minstrel at heart. Playing for other wandering souls. Love full sun. Been known to indulge in sonic experiments. If I ever fake my own death, I will flee to Costa Rica and re-name myself Nacho del Sol. I will travel only by donkey and befriend all the locals.
