Other than the guitar solo and a few of the background singing parts, this is all re-recorded. My voice really isn’t made for this kind of song, but anyway. It now has a hammond tonewheel organ for George Edema’s sake.
Two new songs came out of the oven this week. “Cars in the Road” is one that I have worked on for about a month; this is the second re-recording of the entire thing. It’s really hard to write a slow song that doesn’t plod along; still not perfect. “Hurt a Lot” is a song that came to me almost fully written as I walked in the door after work last week. It’s faster and shorter; both virtues in pop music. Neither song has electric guitars, just acoustic + bass + drums + voice.
