August 07, 2018  -  User Showcase Song - Hamama

It's been a busy summer doing other things, but I have worked on a couple of songs recently, and this is one of them.

This song came about when a playful little pattern picking lick I found on the guitar (which doesn't appear anywhere in the song, but it did inspire the melody) met a lovely woman from Pakistan last weekend with a personality to match it. She was a force of nature, coming out of her shell. It was fun to watch. Sweet. Pretty. Opinionated. And trying things she'd never tried.

I didn't intend this to be a bluegrass tune. But considering the lick was somewhat bluegrassy to begin with, and the fact that I needed a very playful instrument like a mandolin weaving its way around the song to illustrate her lively personality ... well ... there was nothing for it. Add a fiddle and call it done. I think the conga drums make it a little different, though.
