Trying Out A New Song

During last week’s show in Oshkosh we tried out a new song. I think this was only the second time we’d played it in public. I started writing it two years ago in a motel room at the edge of Bayfield, Wisconsin, thus the Hayward and Trego references.

Here’s an unmixed rough recording of the performance. My favorite part? Listen how the band carefully carries me through the bits we’re still working out. Especially on final chorus where you can hear Chris counting for me. Makes me grin. They’re good and I’m lucky to have them.

I’ve got most of the songs for the next album written, it’s just a matter of finding time to get back in the studio. Workin’ on that.
