New Vid – Let Me Count The Ways

Not all songs are true stories. And this is one of those.

Having wrung out a new-to-him chord sequence last week, Trey stitched this one together from some odds and ends laying about on the floor.

Bmi  /  Bb6  /  F#

Thought about Elliot Smith some, as the summer sun beat down. Dory Previn and the Hollywood sign. Bernard Hermann, in a curtains-drawn parlour, not too far from the Universal Studios lot. The bums of Bunker Hill, and a certain detective. Being all upset and such is perhaps worse when the world is all smiling and shiny at you. We would guess.

It's not often Trey uses the same chords for verse and chorus. Maybe we can count that on the thumbs. So a little seasoning was required, to keep this dish fresh.

D6  / Db6 /  Cmaj

Wow! Death metal on the acoustic guitar. Genrefied cover versions welcomed - just send us the link.

Yes. Guitar a tad out of tune. Sometime you just got to jump.
