Watch the I Believe online guitar lesson by Stephen Bennett from Fingerstyle Finesse

This tune was written for a young girl named Faith, who lives in California. It originally appeared on my Everything Under The Sun cd, released in 2004. Like Song For Tsenacommacah, it was originally recorded on a baritone guitar. As a result, if you listen to it there, the sound will be a major third lower than I'm playing now on a standard guitar. The fingering, however, is the same.
Why did I pick this tune? There are a couple of reasons. One is the compositional aspect of it. This tune came into being as I was sitting with guitar in hand reflecting on my friend Faith. Her very name has to do with believing something, right? So I was sitting there thinking about that and the words I Believe came out through the guitar. What do I mean by that? There are no lyrics to this tune, but I would wager that you can clearly hear the words of the title throughout the piece.
