My Hero

I wrote “My Hero” in 1982 for my older brother Richard M. Geddes. Over the years I’ve recorded this song several times, however, this time was most meaningful given his recent passing on April 10, 2022. As this song reflects, he was an important figure in my life, very intelligent and a great role model. I could go on and on….. I miss him. His birthday is June 10th….This one goes out to you big brother….
“My Hero” has some nice finger picking guitar parts that I recorded playing my Martin D35 at Studio Guitar in Richmond Virginia where I teach.


  1. Michael, that is terrific. As you say, some great guitar work and so obviously a moving and heartfelt song. Listening to it at the end of a day that I have spent walking with my younger brother – Richard – by the end there was a softening of the eye.

  2. This is brilliant, really loved it. Is it downloadable from any website, etc (would be happy to pay)? I’d love to play this in my car.
