    The only song I've written to accommodate lyrics, so there's less progressive orchestration. I wrote this for my wife and was going to perform it at the wedding, but plans changed. To force my playing to grow into an uncomfortable area, I got rid of all my guitars and bought an old Ibanez S540LTD. Turns out I missed the Strat too much and that love overcame the joy of that fast and noodley guitar.

    It was recorded through an old 900 and joobilee; one per side, as opposed to the quad tracking I usually do. I like the space. DImarzio Gravity Storms throughout. Underrated humbuckers for organic rock and split tones. Ibanez Edge trem is just lovely and lended itself to some fun.

    Cheers!

    Hi
    My wife says it is a perfect gift to make a song about love or heartbreak, something nostalgic. Sounds great!

    It’s all smoke and mirrors in the little studio! I write and record at the same time, so lots of retakes since I have no idea where it’s going lol.
