Our second late-breaking Xmas mix is a comfortable, relaxing, & warm fireside bit of bluegrass from Ryan Davis Music (aka Garpocalypse), arranging dot hack Infection Part 1:

"Hey, judges, this is my track from last year's OverClocked Christmas album based off of dotHack's root town theme. Decided to tackle a bluegrass-inspired track after listening to some wintery bluegrass tunes by dobro god Jerry Douglas."

Larry Oji writes:

"Nice and cozy stuff from Ryan. The lead string sample was too exposed for the first verse but once the other instruments were introduced at :53, the fuller textures sounded lovely and mitigated any realism issues. A great example of going melodically straightforward but personalizing the sound nicely. I loved both the instrumentation tradeoffs and chorusing choices here. Indeed, curl up by the fire and relax! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! :-)"

Can't say it better than that, so I won't - happy holidays to all, and to all a good night!

Short (so short!) but sweet. Wish it carried the tune a bit longer. Can't help but think from the title that sound sparingly used ambient fireplace noises might've warmed it up some, too.
