Be There Soon

Uploaded .

A song about greater Boston traffic. Just when you think you have it figured out… urgh.

I always sit in 4/4 time. I often need to just break out of it and do something different. This time it’s 6/8, but I feel lots of 7/8 and 5/4 are on the horizon.

The rhythm guitar here is the Les Paul and the lead is the Strat.

I fully intended to fade out over the last 16 bars, but when I heard it end suddenly, the way it does, it made me giggle. It stays.

I’m coming home to you
I’ll be there soon

It get harder every day
has to be a better way

It gets slower every time
think I’m gonna lose my mind

slow to stop slow to stop
its always the same
standing still never move
its such a pain

never pass can’t progress
can’t make my way
can’t move on can’t get home
its always the same
