Electric blues/ high energy /
I recorded a backing track with a drum machine and rhythm guitar onto a 4 track - then output through an amplifier and improvised electric guitar lead .
I wrote many lyrics but only ended up singing the first verse because i was enjoying the feeling of just 'letting it rip ' on the lead guitar ' .
I wrote this song because I have been writing a number of introspective/ reflective songs in FAWM 2020 especially the last few - so i thought i would engage another part of my personality with a high energy electric guitar blues to re- energise my creative spirit . Playing lead guitar has been a big part of my musical life and its something that i honed over a great many years - by practicing and playing in bands- so i thought i would remind myself of my roots .
This is song #25 for me and a fitting way to end FAWM 2020. I feel that i am going out/ finishing FAWM this year with a bang. I hope you enjoy my contribution .
'Highball ' (c) Mark Di Marzio
It was an unexpected disillusion
A surprising conclusion
An appalling solution
Shrouded in confusion
What an oddball
I need a highball
I need a drink ....
