The Thing You Fear The Most

Uploaded .

This song has been the biggest mess of the month. It was the second idea I had, the first that wasn’t dropped. I have fought with it more than any other song I’ve ever recorded. The drum parts have been recorded twice. They rhythm guitars have been recorded three times. The lead guitars have been recorded twice. The vocals and bass are still the originals. The three part vocal harmony has each part doubled so there are six tracks. The lyrics are about… nothing really.

Still, after all of that back and forth, re-recording, over and over again…

I think this is my favorite song of the month now. Maybe.

The guitars are all ES-335 and the amp is my old Fender, except for the harmony leads at the end. Those used GarageBand amp simulator.

and still it’s coming
coming to find you
you hear it running
running you down

its always back there
its right behind you
never escape it
it always comes true

Good luck to you
You’ll never get away
Safe trip to you
you have a debt to pay

creeping in corners
watching you’re every move
hiding in shadows
completely disapprove

you think you lost it
but it is always there
you try to see it
but it will disappear

you can never get away from the
thing you fear the most

I personally believe this to be your best February contribution. Good lyrics, nice rifts, vocals are slick and smooth, and talk about a choice, juicy lead break!
