Today's song is an acoustic tune with a banjo solo. While it has the same basic instrumentation as yesterday's happy little ditty, this song is the single ugliest monstrosity I've ever put to tape. In other words, it's a totally self-indulgent guilty pleasure. Enjoy. ;)
There's nothing but my voice and a single acoustic guitar for most of the song, believe it or not. The solo instrument is a banjo, also believe it or not.
I was pretty haphazard with recording this one. The guitar that you hear is mostly just coming out of its pickup, running through Guitar Rig for some distortion. There's also a little bit of mic on it to capture the highs. The vocal goes through Guitar Rig, as does the solo banjo, which is recorded with its built-in pickup.
