Playing music is all about pushing yourself, expanding your horizons, seeing just how far you can stretch your abilities and aspirations...before falling flat on your face.
I pushed myself pretty far on this one, in both performance and production. For one thing, I turned into a rhythm maniac...overdubbing six percussion parts to complement Ron Baumgartner's distinctive drum track. I also spent an entire afternoon figuring out and recording a fairly unusual four-part background harmony, coming out of the guitar lead. The end result was a song that's notably different, musically, from anything I'd ever attempted before.
I'm pretty happy with the results. Then, again, the possibility always exists that I did fall flat on my face. What do I know? In the end, it's not up to me to determine whether or not I succeeded in these efforts. That's for you, the listener, to decide.
