Country Thinking

I was in Ruffy.  I thought I'd like to record a country song.  

I wanted to try some slide guitar, and also to use my little smokey amp.

I recorded an egg shaker, and a broom, inspired by having seen Neil Young use this technique on an MTV Unplugged performance.  :)

I also added guitar played with a cello bow to give it more country vibe!

Here is an older sketch of the song recorded on a Zoom H4 multitrack thing, while I was in NZ in my hire car, I think!  It's got more of a wistful, perhaps sorrowful vibe.  I guess "melancholy" would probably feel more apt, actually.
