Track 27: “I Wrote a Song for You”

We’re back from the short sabbatical we never told you about. Sorry, and hi again. We’re relaunching with a song that’s basically about writing a song. It comes from our sessions with Bart Schoudel and Ron Haney of the Churchills. The arpeggios that serve as the main riff were a happy accident. They were meant to be added color behind two other guitars, but we killed both of those guitars in the mix. Sometimes less is more. But sometimes more is more, too, like the piano line in the second chorus that Ron suggested after we thought we were done. That’s what producers are for, it turns out.
