2021 50/90 Song Number 42

A couple of days ago I posted a song called Goodnight Hold Tight and on the notes I mentioned that there was another song coming that was (completely by accident) structurally identical. This is that song.

Can you see what I was getting at? The rhythm guitar tracks (not including all of the sauce I buried them under) and the lengths of the phrases and the random sections that had extra measures or the bridges with the three bar phrase repeated a few times? Any of that sound familiar? I don’t think song comes off too similar but it’s bones are pretty much identical… and I swear that it was not on purpose.

This mix is a bit of a pig. Recording the vocals was downright brutal. I couldn’t get the simple rhythms anywhere close to right. I had similar problems when I did the leads and I just threw a second drummer on their temporarily to give me a feel of what the hell was happening with the timing. It helped. I kinda wish I did the same thing while recording the vocals. I am also somewhat displeased with my lead playing as one solo ends on a note that is bent out of tune and another ends on a note that fails to anticipate a key change in the next section. Oh well.

All of the guitars are my Gibson Les Paul Standard. The rhythm used an MXR Phase 90 into a Klon KTR into a Vox AC15. The oceans of delay were added in the mix. The lead used a Dunlop Crybaby Wah into a Ryra The Klone into a Wren and Cuff Super Russian into a Fender Bassbreaker 15.
