Composed by: Christina Tourin
I am especially excited to share this new composition with you! During my travels this summer, I received so much inspiration for new songs! This is called Imaginings, sub-titled Dollink which is an affectionate English term for ‘Darling’. It was inspired after listening to a fun song called the “Graceful Ghost” performed by the group Whiplash.
I envisioned prancing on stage with a top hat and cane and playing my Blevins Touring 33. (Had fun visualizing the result – see image to the right! !). I got to thinking about the history of ‘Top Hats and Canes’ and found it was a ‘screwball musical comedy’ from 1935, music written by Irving Berlin that featured Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers!. What transpired in my head was this new song with a swing feel to it, Imaginings. I have posted it here as a harp solo. However, when I went to record it, my engineer, the dynamic guitarist Peter Sprague and I couldn’t help but have lots of fun in the studio that day.
Therefore, although there is not a guitar transcription for this, for who could ever pull off playing like Peter!, I share the second clip of our duo. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.
