Every year my wife takes a vacation with her sister. "Their" time.
A north Georgia cabin hiking getaway - that kind of thing.
And what they call "drinkin' and stinkin'"...
This year, while they were gone, I noticed "my wife's things" seemingly left behind...
(not really, of course... 'cause as far as I knew she was coming back...)
It gave me the idea for this song. THIS I LOVE TAMMY TATTOO
you know that old coat that you left behind
I dropped it at the thrift store down on 59
that mug you always liked, well i dropped that too
a hundred little pieces - nothing much that I could do
tending to a garden, that's just not my style
so all your back porch plants have been gone for quite a while
I gave away your cds and your yoga mat
after all what would i do with something like that
there's just one thing
that won't go away
staring back at me
every single day
tell me if you can what do i do
with this i love tammy tattoo
that cabernet you were saving for some special day
i drank straight from the bottle, then threw half of it away
whatever that was in your crochet bin
one night, i unraveled until i reached the end
I finally thought to change the message on my phone
the one where you just giggled and said "wait for the tone"
i deleted every picture that i could find
of you or you and me or anything that brought you to mind
The BIAB stuff...

It looks like a LOT of guitars... but they, of course, don't all play at once.
I find that to create the "rock sound" that I'm after, I need to use various guitar tracks
at different times in the song for what is happening in the song at that time...
So the guitars trade off - usually 2 at a time - sometimes 3...
Again... crank. it. up! (As LOUD as you can stand it!!!)
