Goodbye 2021

Can you tell I just got a volume pedal and needed an excuse to use it?

The most exciting music theory part of this tune is the phrase structure. I'd been wanting to write a song with three-bar phrases for a while, and this is the song that resulted. Originally, the plan was just to have three bars of ambiance at the beginning of the tune so that the actual start would be surprising. However, as I wrote the tune, I decided to make the main riff three bars long as well.

In hindsight, I'm not happy with the mix on this track. I think I cut too much low end out, and if I ever revisit this track I bet I'll overcompensate and drown it in bass. Dear future me: please don't do that.

All in all, my favorite part of this tune is the verse riff and melody.

The guitars used in this track:
  1. Rhythm guitars were my Fender Telecaster Deluxe and Epiphone Les Paul Standard, both on the bridge pickup.
  2. Lead guitar was played my Fender Telecaster Deluxe.
  3. Squier Affinity Jazz Bass, as always.
