Back to California



 Genre: Acoustic

Get Flash to see this player.

This song was recorded in the rehearsal room I used to prepare for my second album release show "Beautiful Frankenstein" in Nashville. This was the last bit of music I did in that black room, and it was recorded before "Madness" (the last song I posted here). One fun fact is that the electric guitar tone was found through sheer hilarious luck.

After the release show, I left all of my equipment piled in my van for a few days, and when I dealt with the mess, I discovered that the setting I liked to use on my electric guitar no longer worked. I took it to Guitar Center for repair and they called me a few days later to tell me they couldn't fix it because they didn't carry the part. I thought it strange that the biggest guitar chain in America couldn't get their hands on a run-of-the-mill Squier pickup, but I didn't bother them with that and picked up my guitar. They took it upon themselves to replace my strings for free, which were only several days old to begin with. And a day later they called me to let me know I had left the back plate of my guitar there. In other words, they forgot to reattach the back plate, and then blamed it on me in some warped logic. Anyway, I like busted things that work, so I plugged my broken guitar in to see what it sounded like.

It didn't work through my footpedal and PA, but it did work through my recording equipment. I used a Logic Pro guitar setting and this is the tone it gave me. I tried to recreate it later, but I only got it for this one day. I thought guitar center could keep the back plate as a memento to screwing over their customers, but they harassed me on the phone about picking it up so I obliged.

I know the picture doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's me and Li Shuang, and with that said, I hope you enjoy the song!

Guess I'll go back to California
Rest my head
Guess I'll go back to California
Spend some time with my friends
Guess I'll go back to California

I wish that I could make the change I wish to see in the world
But I know that I can only change myself
So I'm gonna take to the road again
And love a special girl

Gonna go back to California
Rest my head
Yes I'll go back to California
Spend some time with my friends
Gonna go back to California
Back to California
Back to California
