Dig That Hole

Uploaded .

National Solo Album Month continues with another ho-hum rock song with an overly drawn out ending. I almost like the chorus. Actually, I almost like the whole song. It’s just kinda… there. The ending was supposed to be a one bar phrase repeated for 32 bars but as I was putting down the rhythm guitar I just couldn’t go through with it. A little tweak to the guitar (octaves instead of root/5ths), a little three part harmony, and a little guitar noise with a rotary speaker effect (added in the mix as I don’t own a rotary speaker simulator and haven’t been able to talk myself into spending the money yet) and it’s broken up a bit. Not terrible. Not great. Just there.

All of the guitar parts are a Gibson SG into a Ryra The Klone pedal, a Chicago Stompworks Blooze Maker pedal, and both a Vox AC15 and a Fender Bassbreaker 15.

Verse 1 + 3
How did we end up like this
please tell me
Now is a good time to look
see if we can fix it

Verse 2
Know how to get to the truth
dig deeper
Go to the end of the line
see if you can make it

you’ve dug a serious hole for yourself
there is no way to get out
they’ll all be coming for you just you wait
and you know what it’s about

We’re coming for you now
