2021 50/90 song number 14 of 50.

A 12-bar blues I noodled together on my iPad late one night when I thought I was going to get shut out for the day. It was the very definition of a throw away and yet somehow I kinda like it. I really like the chorus and the quiet little bridgey thing is good. The verse is the weak link. The bass forced the IV chord in the bridge and the chorus to be minor (A minor 7 to be exact) but it sounded wrong in the verse. I made it a major (A dominate 7 to be exact) and it sounded better. I just feel like it threw off the whole vibe, music theoretically speaking.

The guitars, lead and rhythm, are a Les Paul Standard 50’s into a Ryra the Klone into a Fender Bassbreaker 15. The lead stuck a Wren and Cuff Super Russian after the Ryra.

Verse 1
alarm the door and lock the way out
In prison its like a life sentence for real

Bridge 1
Yes I know this is the right thing
My destiny, This is my future

I believe it I believe it could be the reason it could be the reason
I belive
yes I believe

Verse 2
Put me in jail and throw the key out
no future I’ll be here forever for real

Bridge outro
I can’t accept the truth
I believe
its the way it is
