I wish that someone, somewhere along the line had challenged me to expand on some of the ideas in my lyric writing. Just repeating lines that might mean something to me doesn't really convey anything. It can be a bit of a bore. This is the first song I wrote and performed solo acoustic at my first open mic outing after coming out of hiding from behind a wall of cacophonic white hot vacuum tube vibrations.
I wrote a solo into this one especially for Arnie. “It's going to start Acoustic then there'll be a key change for some shredding”. I can remember every note of this solo, like all the great solos. Go Arnie!

Arnie Van Bussel on gtr, bass and bvs. He also recorded this one for free one arvo while I was living at his place. We had an ace drummer too who hadn't heard of the idea of playing with the hats half open.
