View Full Version : A new song - tribute to Gram Parsons

Well, at least it started out as a song Parsons could have written. In the end I think it's more of a cross between the Burritos and The Band.

At least it was an excuse to record some gear for the first time (bass, steel, organ, mandolin on the right channel).

I definitely got the Parsons and The Band vibe from that. If you'd have put a harmony vocal on the verse it would have felt a little like an acoustic Jayhawks track.

man, very nice song!! I really love the arrangement too, it has such a big, airy sound. Great job.

Thanks guys! I was going for a spacy, languid feel. I tried to fit more harmony vocals in (they're my favorite thing to do), but I just couldn't do it without crowding the arrangement.

Great tune, and I really like the mandolin playing.

This track is a lot of fun to listen to with headphones. A really cool tune!
