This tune sort of came about by accident. I put a drum loop behind Hold On as a joke. When Jon heard it, he started playing the opening riff for this tune. I instantly knew it had to be our next recording.
Jon didn’t have a bridge, so he turned to me for that. I’m proud of the saddest sounding E-major ever as the final chord.
After we had all the pieces together, this tune was pretty simple to record. 2 acoustic guitars, a bass, and a sloppy mono drum-loop.
The concept behind this recording was to be loose, and that it was good to not play rigidly… To keep it a little dirty on purpose. Really, it was the opposite of Hold On.
And if I may pat myself on the back a little… I love the bass in this tune, primarily because I got to rip-off some of Rob DeLeo’s (of STP) motown fills. Sadly, my Epiphone wasn’t going to cut it for this tune. I needed a bass with actual character, so I borrowed a friend’s Schecter Model T (thanks Bryan!).
