30:   N.B.. re: Dropbox…

N.B…. If you don’t normally use ‘Dropbox‘, just take out a (totally free) subscription via either the desktop site or the App… which will give you free access to the the ‘Document‘ and/or ‘MP4′ music files that I keep in my Dropbox libraries. 

I’m also working on finding a way of being able to place the actual music files on the ‘HomeSpun’ page, so that you just need to click on the ▶️ to play the tune. I’ll crack it if it’s crackable!😄

Re DropBox…. Don’t worry…  I pay the dues… not you!.. Ok?😄👍

Scroll down to 29 for my Deer Hunter offering. 



29: Another Film Theme. 

I have always liked the theme from,       “The Deer Hunter”.

And… when I was looking for a ‘base tune’ for a project to do a piece for relaxation, it occurred to me that the theme from The Deer Hunter would be ideal.

So.. I created a version of my own, which I hoped could imaginatively replicate the feeling of being ‘washed over by warm flowing water’.

Whether I succeeded, can only really be judged by the effects on each individual listener.

Ok.. it obviously worked for me, but I hope that I am not so vain or presumptive, as to assume it would ‘click’ that way for everyone, so I’d really appreciate your comments, to get some idea of how successful I’ve been with this one. (if you’d prefer to ‘private message’ me…. send reactions to

I hope that you enjoy it, anyway. 

I used:- Bass, Jazz, and 12-string guitars for this one… helped in the process by a couple of guitar effects pedals. I tried to ‘semi-dissolve’ the melody into the warm flowing backing, so that it just emerges recognisably ‘now and then’.

Here you are, then.. Relax just here :-

(As always… the best effect is gained by listening through good sized speakers or a decent headset… tap/click the underlined link)👇




28: Still Open All Hours!

Hi everyone.

This is just a brief addition to “HomeSpun”, to explain the lack of recent additions to either this or to my “Free Food For Thought” site….

Healthwise, I’m unfortunately going through a rough patch at the moment. But… I’m hoping that I’ll be making regular additions to both sites again, very soon.

Maybe my temporary slow progress will  give you a chance to ‘catch-up’ on either or both of my sites. 😊

In the meantime, the sites are, “Still Open All Hours”, and here’s a small HomeSpun offering (done using just a bass guitar and effects pedal) to prove it!

😄. I created this version when it was the theme music to “Open All Hours” with Ronnie Barker, prior to the current(still as good, in my view) Still Open All Hours” with David Jason…. still as droll,  as nostalgically relaxing, and.. as funny as the original series’. 😆👍. 

I hope you enjoy this version(please let me know if the link doesn’t work for you)….

just click on ▶️ In the mini-player👇 (best reproduction of original instruments is via headset or hi-fi speakers)



27:  Might I refer you to…?

Hi… this is me just taking the opportunity(liberty?!) of reminding you of my other website, in the hope that you will enjoy its diversity as much as you do with my offerings on this “HomeSpun” musical site…. I hope you are enjoying it… well… you’re here, aren’t you!?😆👍

My other set of offerings(now almost 100 of them) is even more diverse than my musical ones, and I hope, along with being enjoyable, provide some ‘food for thought’ at the very least. As you would hopefully expect from me; humour features regularly😆. 

The site can be accessed directly via this link:-   ..or via the reminders on Facebook etc. 

….and is entitled, “Free Food For Thought”

See you there?… I hope so.
