Feels Like Something's Coming (2020 Version)

I didn’t even think of this until I started mixing tonight that this song has the exact same structural gimmick as the last song I posted. Ooops. I guess that’s the risk you take when you are totally unoriginal and working on a sort of compilation type thingie.

I wrote this in 2016 during the RPM Challenge. It was a telecommuting day at work and I wrote the whole thing on my iPad, including lyrics and vocals, during the hour and a half I normally would have been stuck in traffic. Given Covid-19, telecommuting is the norm and traffic is a distant memory (though it constantly looms on the post-vaccination horizon).

The arrangement this time is exactly the same as the original, I just redid every track. The arpeggio rhythm guitars are a Gibson ES-335 Pro into a Ryra the Klone into both a Fender Bassbreaker 15 and a Vox AC15. The noisy rhythm added a Chicago Stompworks Blooze Maker after the Ryra. The lead is a Gibson SG Standard into a Klon KTR and a Malaise Forever Black Lives matter into the same two amps. The acoustic is a Takamine 12-string whose model number I can’t remember, though it is a lawsuit era model.

Feels like somethings coming
Feels like something new
Feels like a new day dawning
Feels like something good
