Nana para Eric

The album Lullabies for Astronauts includes a new version of this piece and its score.

Eric is Alberto’s child. Alberto is the young man behind ’Ukulele Spain. Both of them deserve a personalized lullaby, have a good night!

The melody uses lots of repeated notes to draw the harmony in the main theme –and a casual bending. In the second section a couple of not-so-difficult glissandi and pull-offs appear. For some reason I considered –and I still do– a good idea to finish the piece with a dominant chord.
