Here is this week's song, Laying in the Weeds:

https://52tracksblog.com/2016/05/26/track-21-laying-in-the-weeds/

BIAB RTs: bass guitar, electric guitars. I played a couple of acoustic guitars.

LAYING IN THE WEEDS

I tried to find a reason
I learned a fiddler’s tune
I played out all the horsehair
By the harvest moon
I could be laying in the weeds
I could be laying in the weeds

Imagine all the questions
Suspended in the air
Waiting for the moment
When you’ve time care
I might be laying in the weeds
I might be laying in the weeds

You think that have you science
Sitting by your side
You think you got protection
But all you got is pride
I might be laying in the weeds
I might be laying in the weeds

I sense what you’ve forgotten
Is making you believe
The world has got you thinking
It has something up its sleeve
I might be laying in the weeds
I might be laying in the weeds

You hear the leaves a-rustling
In the sundown wind
You start to get the feeling
Your exits have been thinned
I might be laying in the weeds
I might be laying in the weeds

Thanks for listening.

Fred

Cool tune Fred!! It kind of grows on you as it goes (no pun intended). I really like the way the guitar and drums fit together, and you got a great mix on the drums. Very nice! Take care. Greg

Yes, the Neil Young feel is there or at least the "good" Neil Young feel is there smile

The mix and particularly the drums and vocals sound great.

Enjoyed it.

Ah, the "good" Neil Young. He hasn't released a strong album of songs since Prairie Wind.

Glad you liked the arrangement.
