Guitar Song: Merry Christmas/Whatever from the Portland Freelancer
Okay, we're at that point when talk of war and corruption just seems overly harsh. So here's my version of "Oh Holy Night". I recorded it using 3 different tracks, on a custom electric guitar made by the fine folks at 12th Fret on Belmont in beautiful Portland, Oregon. It starts with an actual guitar trick - the bell sound at the beginning was made by hitting the strings with the volume down and then bringing it up.
As you'll read, there were some in my family who had difficulty locating the melody line. Whoops! It is a little buried and there's a long intro, so after the bent notes part, the melody comes in. It is a great song composition, the way it builds, etc...
Oh, what the hell. The emotion is accurate, and this is one of my better recordings. But then again you can't dance to it, so really, what's the point?
The point is to express a Merry Christmas or anything else you're celebrating and Best Wishes in 2007.
