A song idea that literally came to me at 4:00 AM after dreaming about writing down some chords to a new song. I woke up and grabbed my acoustic guitar, but the chords made no sense. But then I came up with this idea – recorded a few days later using my Strat and a Digitech Trio+ pedal.
I’m not sure how to categorize this one. Neither happy nor sad. Maybe “moody” is a better description. This track features a Martin DC Aura acoustic on rhythm, a Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster on lead and a Rickenbacker 4003 on bass.
This song was the result of some new chords I discovered while experimenting with an alternate tuning. Lots of nice ringing open strings. It’s different, but I like it It features a 2012 Martin DC Aura on rhythm, 2000 Gibson Gary Moore signature Les Paul on lead and a 2012 Rickenbacker 4003 on bass.
