November 07, 2022  -  User Showcase Song - The Long Way Home

The Long Way Home on SoundCloud

At first I used a resonator, which gave it a good leisurely feel, but totally dumped it when Dave Bell sent me his guitar track. There is no solo in the song and it has a bit of a country flavor, so I hesitated to ask Dave to add fills –not because he wouldn't be great at it, but he knows I'm always afraid of wearing out my welcome. Whoa. Never again will I hesitate. He not only captured the easy stroll, but added so much MORE flavor, and even sounded a bit of country himself. [Nice hat, too.] So Dave Bell of Blue Attitude plays guitar, and I added bass and vocal. Your comments are not only welcomed, but treasured and very helpful.

The first verse is Guy Meets Girl, the second is Guy Gets Girl, and the third is Guy Is Already Married To Girl. You can change the genders anyway you like, of course. The leisurely feel represents... well, foreplay really, and the changing of keys represents impatience. The slowdown at the end expresses the desire to make it last.
