A groovy little bluegrass-inspired solo acoustic guitar number.

Hey, f_o_f, nice! I was wondering when we might be hearing from you again round these parts! Great to hear you on acoustic. Love that little tag chord at the end.

Funny title, too. Any Italian bakeries left in Boerum Hill, BTW?

Arrigato, f@m. I've been writing alot, actually, for my band and my next record - I'll post those once they've been properly recorded. In the meantime, I've rediscovered a bunch of stuff that I had been meaning to post all along, so stay tuned!

I liked it a lot, too, and I too was glad to see another song from you posted. And you know, about those new ones you are doing, it's none of my business, I know, but it would be cool to also get to hear some of your home recorded stuff. The production of your record was fantastic, but this has a charm of its own. Don't be shy to post early versions (and, I gotta admit, your 'early versions' are better recorded than my better ones!)

How did things go with the last record? You got to tour a bit as well, didn't you?

Thanks for all the kind words, micayetoca! I wasn't able to tour for my last record, unfortunately. I "released" it (ie, made it available, here and elsewhere) around late December '06. I gave myself through June to do everything I could to promote it - this included getting it on various radio stations (terrestrial and online), in podcasts, reviewed, etc. You can see a list of my progress at my website, www.alecberlin.com. It was an amazing experience - I learned SO much about radio promotion, online radio, and other parts of the music world that were completely foreign to me.

I also gigged infrequently but regularly in Manhattan. More impressively (to me, anyway), I managed to keep the same bunch of extremely talented and busy musicians in my band the entire time - in fact, we have a gig tomorrow, Mon 11/5, at ye olde Bitter End, so any NYC Mefites should come by at around 9:30 if they are interested.

Thanks a million for your interest about the new material, let me think on it...

Damn that's sweet! I can't wait to hear your upcoming stuff.
