Gettin’ Low

Brian wrote this guitar lick years ago.  And it’s awesome.  Totally awesome. How could you say this isn’t awesome?

We recorded the main riff and it sat rotting in a backwoods directory on my computer for a few years.  At some point in early 2012 I rediscovered it and played it for Brian over the phone.  He decided that he’d try to sit down and write some lyrics for it to see if we could give the song a heartbeat.

He banged out all the lyrics in a single sitting.  That next weekend we recorded the vocals.  After we fooled around with the song form a little bit, we decided we needed a bright, bluesy guitar solo, a very “in the pocket” clean drumbeat, some simple non-showy bass playing, and a subtle organ part for the chorus.

When deciding who to pick for a bluesy guitar solo, we both thought of Mr. Jeff Scull, who came over and did a fantastic job after we fed him a lot of rum…  A lot of rum.

The whole idea behind this tune was to respect the groove and respect the space.
