Notes: I had a fun time with this one. I recorded the guitar part while I was noodling out in my back yard over the weekend -- nothing fancy, just the Notes app and my iPhone's microphone. There are some scratchy low-fi artifacts, and you can hear the road and the crickets, but I like this one that way. Today, I brought it up to my workstation and added vocals. It has a bluesier vibe than I'm used to working with, so it gave me a nice opportunity to try some harmonies I wouldn't usually go for. There was a bit of menace to the chord changes, so I sang to the great enemy that has bedeviled us us this summer, which is of course the rain. Here's hoping for sunnier days ahead.
Batten it before it all comes down
Lock it up tight
Nothing in or out
Keep the Devil at bay
