free bird

June 13, 2009

Since my failed lipogram and meta summer jam, I haven’t really made or played any music in a month.  I’ve been writing a lot which has of course been a wonderful thing but the last few days I’ve really been wanting to play, so I messed around a little and did this cover of “Free Bird.”  I originally saw it as an easy listening pop lounge sort of thing, the midpoint of Chet Baker and Jack Johnson, but recording acoustic guitars is hard and my mics suck so it kind of became this lo-fi faux-disco jam instead.  I wanted to do some heavy lead guitar fills but they just sounded crappy and really, like, why try to measure up to perfection?
