If Only I Could Follow

A tune composed late in 2009, i’ve released it as well as other two tracks and some photos from a friend of mine as a micro-ep recently for free! Enjoy!

This is using a tuning I borrowed from The Smashing Pumpkins, which goes E-A-D-G#-B-E. Not sure what that particular tuning is called, but it creates an interesting shift in your chord shapes.

Reminds me more of a ear romp with satriani or eric whatshisname cliffs of dover. pretty epic when it gets going. I hear a simpler indie sound in the beginning, but hear it melt away after the bridge. but once again i also appreciate the drum programmin

Thanks you all for the listen, Im glad you enjoyed it! Getting some great feedback and its very exciting! @kirklynch: It isnt much of a change out of standard, as I said, but i found this little shift on the G -> G# really does add a nice accent. I'll post some other songs where I use this tuning so you can all see some other adjustments this tuning makes!
