A Short Eternity

01 A Short Eternity

A sad tale of a withdrawn man from a few weeks back. He’s hiding out from the world — it’s just too much for him! He has hung a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door to his pitiful life. What drove him to this hermit’s state? You guessed it — love. I somehow managed to use the word “fray” in this one, it’s a pretty singable word I’ve never heard in a song. This demo reflects my current obsession with the nylon string “classical” guitar, which I used on two tracks. It’s very meaty sounding and yet somehow it floats around the vocal, never obscuring it. It’s the Ginger Rogers of instruments, dancing backwards in heels, while making Fred Astaire look that much better! An inch or so beneath this blog is an alternate drawing illustrating our poor, crushed protagonist. He has left his Motel Six for a nice secluded sewer in Arizona.

    it’s a lovely song, fully realized by the performance and recording. i love the word-play in the verses. john, are any of these songs written, recorded, and posted on the same day or there-abouts?
