Dark Blue.

First track for 2015! There will be more to come. I'm clearing the backlog of songs this year and then going back to the drawing board. Need to learn new things and play other types of music. There is so much to learn when it comes to music but at the end of the day, it is what you use that matters. I'm a song oriented guy.

I might get a band together to play some of the new songs live because the new material is fun to play. However, I've played as many bad gigs as I have good ones in the past, so I'm not just gonna jump at any chance to play. At my age, I don't need to play for the sake of playing. I can do that at home for my own pleasure. We will see how it goes.

Putting together a simple power trio would be good, if I can find a solid bassist and drummer. I recorded the songs in a way where I can pull off all the parts with just the rhythm section backing me. There is just one guitar playing most of the parts. Some of it is double tracked but other than that I kept it simple. My previous album was full of self indulgent guitar parts and layering. I wanted to avoid that this time around.
