Occam's Razor

This bluesy instrumental is played in DADGAD tuning (from the bass), a tuning almost universally reserved for Celtic music. It's not particularly hard... I bet you could find all or most of it by playfully exploring DADGAD tuning. After all, it's called playing music, not working music! Come see me or write if you get stuck. ~ Geoff, January 2010

Occam's Razor (sometimes Ockham's) is a philosophical principle attributed to 14th-century English logician, theologian, and Franciscan friar, William of Ockham, postulating that when anything goes wrong in any complex system, one must look for the simplest explanation and "shave off" complex explanations. In other words, when your car breaks down, a twenty-seven-cent part is probably to blame. This has absolutely nothing to do with my instrumental.
