On Another Moon

This didn’t go as planned… I wrote this song for my wife Nicola while I was away in the UK working in March 2020… I excitedly played it to her from 3,500 miles away over the ether and…. I think she was expecting a ballad rather than a rather proggy track with multi-tracked vocals… The thought was there?!

The bass used on this is my Frankenbass Bitsa - a gift from a great friend - It’s got a Squier Precision body, Northwest Guitars neck and some Japanese pick ups of unknown origin. I re-strung it with some flat wounds and it sounds EPIC!

I’m proud of this one both lyrically and musically - even it it isn’t the tear-jerker Nicola was hoping for!

@andrew - this is pretty much the original but with some radical mixing. The drums sounded like Spector's Wall of Sound' on the original and the balance was all wrong - The piano on the middle 8 now has the dreamy, ethereal feel I wanted too. I would need to write an entirely new song to give her what she expected!!

Digging the bass.

Cool track. But does she like it like this? What did you play to her originally? I suspect that creating a second version, closer to what she was expecting would be the safe thing to do.... LOL
