Music Monday- Lullaby for an Anxious Child by Dominic Miller

I first heard this beautiful song, "Lullaby for an Anxious Child" on the "b-side" of a Sting single.  Sting ended up re-recording and putting it on a CD, I think it's the "Winter's Night" CD, but that recording isn't nearly as good as the original. 

So, I was looking for it on YouTube and ran across THIS version~ It's the non-lyrical version, and it's beautiful.  Who needs words when you're a baby anyway?!  Gorgeous, soothing melody.

Dominic Miller is the guitarist who's has been playing with Sting ever since he went solo.  He played the gorgeous and memorable parts in some of Stings' greatest songs like "Shape of My Heart" and "Fragile".  He co-wrote this one with Sting. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful classical guitar songs ever.

And it's perfect for this rainy, gray weather we have today.

Happy Music Monday-  Don't be anxious!  :)
Oh, and if you're a guitar player, here's a PDF link for the guitar tablature for the song.
