Make It All Alright – MP3

June 23rd, 2007

This one found me.

I was finishing my coffee, just pacing around the living room with my guitar, when I started strumming this progression. I mumbled nonesense until “baby take a look at me” and “someone save me” emerged.

The rest is here on tape (or, um, mp3). Those polyrhythms you hear in the bridge and final chorus, by the way, are me bangin’ on a wooden stool (on the right) and a plastic chair (on the left).

I’m not nuts about the vocal; I probably should drop it a half-step. But, well, too late… until I officially record it for the next record anyway.

I always knew I should’ve been a drummer.
