"What a weird title..." - your thoughts.
And you're correct. But what you don't know... while I was recording this session, spicy ground beef, with chipotle peppers, tomatoes, oregano, etc etc was simmering in the background and booooy did it smell absolutely divine!
A brief overview of this track...
This is a 3in10 challenge where I just set the recorder to go and play. Something, anything, whatever comes to mind. Doesn't matter what. I after go through a mark down segments that could be songs on their own. The Manhattan Sessions (http://fawm.org/songs/67947/) was my take on this on piano. This time, I stayed at 10 mins, and found 4 unique song segments (and 1 section of tuning... more on this below).
0:00 - 2:43 : Song 1 (In Which my Fingers Slowly Bleed)
Coming off of Morning Meadow (http://fawm.org/songs/70015/) yesterday, I awoke with greatly reduced blisters, but still real tender fingertips on my right hand. However, I would not let this deter me and started this off in a gentle finger picking fashion.
2:43 - 5:25 : Song 2 (Shit Gets Real, Dawg)
My fingers raw. Pick in hand. Shit gets real. Dawg. Kristen claims that I was channeling my inner Who and playing my own Underture (re: Tommy). I can neither confirm nor deny this statement, but what I do know is that this shit is real, dawg.
5:25 - 5:52 : Tuning (In which we lose what is dear to us)
RIP DADGAD. Don't mind me. I was just switching up tunings real quick from DADGAD to standard tuning.
5:52 - 7:56 : Song 3 (And We Mourn)
This mournful piece reminds us of a better time. One in which we played with DADGAD tuning. But alas, DADGAD is no more and we embrace the soulful sounds of standard tuning.
7:56 - 10:28 : Song 4 (Life Goes On. With Ever More Song)
Our mourning complete, we move on to happier estates. True story, I actually tried to transition to a blues progression here and failed. Make that what you will.
