Just a sketch of those wistful Sunday afternoon blues for a chilly day in NYC, let me know what you think!
Let me know what you think of this little number. I was going for a old soul vibe, the kind of feeling that’s meant for the late evening, early morning hours where the night gets the best of you.
Yes I know, shameless self promotion is back in full force. "Sin" by yours truly was a happy accident. I had tuned my guitar to Open E so I could play slide (it is a resonator after all) but I couldn’t find any object in my room that would cooperate for the desired effect. When I stumbled upon this song’s opening chord, I immediately felt that there was an emotion behind it that deserved words. It’s still a demo, and the voice may come as quite a shock at first, but I’m really proud of the overall composition.
I’m not one to usually promote my own songwriting, but I was comfortable enough with this song to share it with everybody I knew, which is a first for me in many respects. Songwriting is a real interesting art, sometimes it comes spur of the moment, like the melody, and sometimes it’s truly informed by past experiences, which gave meaning to these words.
In essence, no relationship is perfect, and often the true feelings you have for someone get lost in the shuffle of everything else going on in your life, and this is sort of a tribute to that, two people realizing they loved who they lost, even though they understand it can never be again.
