"F Major Mania" - A hark back to the 60's

I was playing my brother's old amp in Park Orchards.  We call it "The Dr Who Amp", because it looks like it was made by the BBC special effects team, out of tin foil, or something.

It sounds really crusty, like some old Beatles amp.  so I was just playing around, and then everyone went out, and I was about to leave.  And I thought, "I'm gonna record a quick song!

I ran downstairs with my H4 Zoom set to Multitrack Mode, recorded a drum beat to the click track, then ran upstairs, and wanged out some guitar over it with the Dr Who Amp.

Then I went home and threw some bass on there.  Done!  It's real scrappy!  But another fun journey into the sounds of the late 60's.

The structure of the song is a bit weird.  I kinda like the Verse part the least, and it appears the most.  Would chop and change it around a bit before making it into an actual song for a band format!  I like the intro riff a lot, which re-appears at the end.

This is me from years ago.  Seemed appropriate.

I wanna be in a psych prog rock band. 
Fax me if interested.
