1st take, just like 30 yrs ago, this time with new mistakes, don't copy them, make your own. All that counts really are the 2 main themes, with the descending coda(?) everything else was improvised then and now, (I think I stole a little from early Leo Kottke in the middle). It might be the most famous "throw away" piece of guitar music with the most ridiculous name. "They" wanted one more instrumental from me for the "Acoustic Guitar Scene" LP in 1973(?) so I played this little simple thing that I'd been playing around with, but never considered worth-while to develop into a "real" piece.
Because I had left Germany to drive overland to India very soon after, I didn't know until a stranger told me a year later in Katmandu, that it was playing on German TV. I myself never ever saw it, once walking into a room as the Balloon picture faded out. I did though receive royalties through the GEMA, until they discontinued playing it. Without that exposure I doubt people would remember my name. A thank you to the nameless TV guy who chose it, and a lesson in irony.
