about

I wrote "Nature Song" as a dedication to the wife of my good friend and mentor, Dick Hindman. Dick's wife Sheena Wang is an acupuncturist who did some work on me several years ago.

The first phrase of the melody came to me after one of the treatments where I felt particularly good.

I didn't quite know what to do after that first phrase. So, I took a page from Dick's book, literally. He wrote a tune for her called "Sheena's Song" where the first phrase repeats but is transposed to a key an interval of a minor third above the original.

Although the forms of each of our tunes is different the use of this compositional device is a nod of gratitude to my long time friend who has always encouraged my efforts at songwriting and composing.
