Zoning out somewhere is me, listening to Mark Hamilton.
Nutshell by Alice in Chains is a piece covered by Mr. Hamilton with high expectations for those who appreciate the sound. This piece delivers imagery and inspiration to the everyday listener. Acoustics from a guitar, bass and a light tambourine create imagery of a prairie or a long desert road. This southern feel comes from the bass and tambourine tap on the two-and-four of the beat you hear.
Segments with the electric guitar as wide and vibrant as the vocals, create a pocket in the piece that lets interpretation ensue from the listener. The piece is not longer than 5 minutes and in that time, you can get a good meditation in, you can read to your child, you can reminisce how far you've come along a journey. This song provides me with an outlet for a distinct set of feelings and can only help me imagine what it can do for you.
