What's the Point?

Uploaded .

Songs with long, drawn out endings that don’t quite relate to the rest of the song is kinda of a theme this month. This one fits that bill. It’s nothing special. I’m not sure if I like it or not. It’s going on the NaSoAlMo album, but if I were doing more than my usual minimum 10 songs I would probably drop it from the final album. As it is, I kinda like the cleanish guitar solo at the end. There are two tracks, one for each mic’d up amplifier. I put a quarter note delay on one track and a dotted quarter note delay on the other and it ends up sounding like a multi-headed tape deck… sort of.

All of the guitar tracks are a Gibson SG Standard into a Ryra The Klone and a Chicago Stompworks Blooze Maker pedal and then two amplifiers, a Vox AC15 and a Fender Bassbreaker 15. For the solo at the end, I turned off the Blooze Maker. Everything else was the same.

whats the point of it
every little bit
whats the meaning behind it all
take the temperature
close the aperture
just so we are sure it won’t fall

close the door
leave it all behind
you can say
watch it all unwind

No escaping
no complaining
no way
