Description
Just trying to find a groove, Played with all acoustic instruments, mandolin and guitar bass, except a couple of things from garage band, (drums and a little horns) I guess in around about way the song is about avoiding conflict. Lyrics made up on the fly, but just kind of a fun song to play along with.

Well you found a nice groove, Jimmy. Quality back porch vibe and some tasty work on the mandolin and the guitar. I liked the repetitive melody lines in the verse but I suppose I just kept waiting for the song to resolve into a different melody/vibe in the chorus (even though I did like dual vocal work there). Just a thought. Take care, Peter.

Wow!
I had to put my guitar down and really pay attention to this one. I love the groove! It;s got that Grateful Dead Franklin's Tower vibe which I love! Great playing, love the harmonies. Who is playing and singing what? Is that you guys in the pic? Or is this all you? Would you mind posting the lyrics? I really think you're onto something with this song. What's the progression? A/C/D/C /D/C/A? Jd.

Chords
Answer a couple questions, picture is of me (on mando) and my old jamming buddy from a long long time ago. I was still a teenager, and I am well into middle age these days. This recording is all me, for better or for worse! The chords are just A DDD A or something like that. I think there may be a C# in the bass line occasionally, and the computer kind of coughed towards the end @ 3:05. Note sure what the notes are in the song. (Honestly I never do!) Sorry about not posting the lyrics, I just made them up on the fly. I will try to do it at some point. My kids gave me a really hard time because they do not make much sense. The real reason for this song is I had no gigs this weekend, and I normally go to an outdoor jam but it was very rainy so I stayed home and locked myself in the basement, and made up a groove to play along with. Thanks for the kind words, and not busting on my silly self harmony stuff!

Totally back porch vibe to it. Warm analogue sound to it - like from a 4 track or something. The mandolin is totally tasty. I get the Dead comment, maybe it's the truncated phrasing on the lyrics. Dig it!
