Royal Oak

Atmospheric slide and acoustic guitar track. Slow beginning with slide guitar joined by fast broken chords on acoustic guitar building tension with guitar sound affects. A melodic motif on acoustic guitar builds up, joined by slide for the ending. Tense, sombre and dramatic, anticipation builds throughout, like the lead-up to a duel in a Western movie. Perfect for a documentary or Film/TV sequence. You can almost hear the crunch of gravel underfoot and the glint of desert sun on spurs.

A Father’s Grip

Thoughtful acoustic guitar folk instrumental. Slow and pensive folky melodic acoustic guitar intro. A pause then a faster section, with finger-picking repetitive folk/blues guitar. A more meandering, explorative section follows into a more upbeat improv-style, rootsy country/folk section. Contemplative at first, then hopeful and positive, yet low-key. Bert Jansch with hints of boogie-woogie, a guitar journey to accompany reflective, traditional scenes on TV/Film/Adverts.

Sandy-Haired Girl

Jaunty country-folk acoustic guitar instrumental. Light-hearted acoustic guitar repeated phrases, melodic acoustic guitar, moments of tension and relief. Upbeat, gentle and pastoral, would suit a Film/TV scene in a rural setting, gentle Americana to suit an innocent ideal of rural life where the greatest threat is a fox among the chickens.

Blackheart Blues, A Sea Shanty

Thoughtful acoustic guitar instrumental. Quiet acoustic guitar intro, freeform strummed section, back to original motif, building in intensity and volume. Pensive, nostalgic at first, becomes more emotional and forceful, would suit a contemplative documentary scene, stirring from thoughtfulness into action.

Medley: The Drink, The Sound, The Sea Elephas

Acoustic guitar medley of styles. Bright acoustic guitar, bobbing along with growing intensity and heavier chords. After 3 mins, new section, more improvisatory with hints of tension, ending on waves of strummed guitar. Hopeful, nostalgic and sincere, sounding like the movement of water, still then stormy, would suit a journey, personal or physical, in Documentary or Film/TV.
