I appear to have lightened the mood a little with this one... If this song wore a hat it would be tipped at a jaunty angle... This one came together relatively quickly - The chorus was based on two bass riffs I had rattling around my head. I like…

I wanted to go down a different path with this one and try a new vibe altogether; no guitars at all and the bass guitar (my new Fender Mustang) only appears at the end of the song

The original title was 'Mediocre Fajita' (long story)... It started out with the initial bass riff but I ran out of creativity and left it. Then over the course of Christmas 2020 I got COVID so most of the time I had neither the willingness or…
