Down Down Down
I set out to make this lyric a sea shanty, but it didn’t work. So it became more of a bluesy Negro Spiritual type song (if it’s not a social faux pas to name that genre that way these days).
This will not be the final cut of the song. I was mainly trying out recording a new guitar I bought for my recent trip to perform at the Harwich (UK) Sea Shanty Festival. This puppy is brand new, and it’s a travel model, but it’s a sweet-soundling little finger style guitar. Flat-pick… meh. I look forward to it really opening up. Korean made “Crafter” brand, around $400.
