A Song Sketch Resurrected!
Greetings from California to all of you on this unusually serene, late September morning. I wanted to say hello and share another long lost and (admittedly) overlooked song idea that never made it past the cutting room floor. I’m not even sure I ever shared this with my pals in our band, but I do occasionally get the sense that some of my guitar ideas are a touch too rudimentary to capture Michael’s imagination. I say that while smiling and with my tongue softy pressed into my cheek. When I record song ideas like this I am under the assumption that if they enjoy the meat of the idea, they will bake a much more interesting loaf of bread to present the final sandwich with. That being said, if this were a sandwich, it would be a molded and fascinating display of decay, for this demo is over ten years old and I did not refrigerate it.
My apologies for the hard to discern vocals, I remember being enamored of the way the bathroom in my old studio sounded so I recorded these vocals in there, hence the far away sounding quality of my voice. But so be it; I feel like it has a vibe and it made me smile this morning upon its unearthing. I could wax philosophical about the content of the lyric and its allusions to God, and the strange double entendre I employ in the chorus, but I think I’ll leave that to you, dear listener. This song sketch is entitled, ‘The Minor Aches’, and I hope you hear it in your favorite headphones and that you watch decaying leaves falling slowly to the floor as you do.
Sending you lots of Love,
