Is it Me (2021 Version)

Uploaded .

I think a full year of writing and recording and re-recording might have burned me out a bit but I still have stuff I want to do and finishing the last few songs from teh fourth round of Quarantine Tunes is on the agenda (so is remixing volume two, I think).

Here’s one that was finished in January and has been sitting around waiting for me to mix it for three months. Hooray. I think this one was written in my June 2014 album in a month attempt. I always liked it but it doesn’t really seem like anything I would ever want to do with a band. The lyrics are meaningless and the guitar playing is sloppy. I think I might have been running out of steam on the project while I was working on this song. Oh well.

The guitars are all Gibson ES-335 through both a Vox AC15 and a Fender Bassbreaker 15. The rhythm tracks used a Klon KTR and a Mooer Elec Lady. The leads used the KTR and a Wren and Cuff Tri Pi ’70 with an MXR Uni-Vibe.

Verse 1
Sometimes I feel disconnected
Sometimes I feel detached
Somedays I feel like a fraud
Somedays I feel like a liar.

Verse 2
Somedays I feel like a faker
Somedays I feel like I’m lost

Is it me or is it you
I don’t know what to do

Verse 3
Sometimes I feel disconnected
Sometimes I feel detached
