Also written in 1985 in San Juan Del Sur, this minor descending progression captures the mystique of the dawn of a new day in the tropics. I used to sit on our porch early in the mornings while we were there, and this was one idea that emerged.
For this one, I was playing around with a riff featuring thirds and fourths, and felt it captured the feeling of driving on a summer day with the top down, enjoying the road.
Straight ahead rock tune.
I started this out with a randomly generated series of drum and bass notes and improvised a chromatic series of notes on top. The run begins with half steps, goes to whole steps, then to minor thirds in the sequence, all starting from the same note.
This is the first recording I did following setting up my studio in 2006, an easy jazzy groove to test out my recording setup.
