It’s a Start

*It’s a Start*
Or for those of you with dyslexia, “It’s a Strat.” Also features a Martin on rhythm. The Strat was also used for a semi-rhythm track, doubled. And a Ric 4003 on bass. Drums by BeatBuddy. First song of 2018. Nice to be back at it! I hadn’t touched the Ric in about 8 months, so give me some slack if the bass isn’t as tight as it should be.
