I woke up thinking maybe I could get a song out for the 14 14 14 14 deadline and had a fun little thing going on the telecaster that grew a second part. I got caught up trying to figure out what on earth the chords are on the banjo and ended up going out and enjoying the sunshine. Some lovely conversations with people up town and a surprise gift for a friend later, the lyrics started coming and the banjo picked up the mood and turned itself into a tiny steel band!
I jested early on in the challenge that I'm only listening to Blind Lemon Jefferson and Talking Heads, but I can see that my album is being guided by the benign spirits that tune to that very radio station!
What A Day!
This may be the happiest song I've ever written. Be warned!
