Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Experimenting strumming a slow boomchuck type rhythm to a metronome on a multicapoed guitar. Listening back the first two lines of the sorta chorus and melody popped in my head. Then I restarted and improvised the rest of the vocal and melody. I still haven't written enough crappy songs.

Lyrics: 

Going Back To The Charging Station
Full capo 2 shortcut capo 6 strumming C, F, G, Am, Dm shapes relative to capo

Going back to the charging station
Watching young couples taking Tesla vacations
Driving all across the nation
For experience and satisfaction
And standing ovations

Going back to the charging station
Where will be imagination
No more fenestration
No more venting our frustrations

Days are nights, nights are free
In this educated society
While watching the palm trees sway in the Florida breeze

Going back to the charging station
Watching young couples taking Tesla vacations
300 miles of range
That concept seems so strange

Our little Smarts get 50 maybe 80 if we drive slow
And thats all we need to know
Around town and maybe to the next town when we go
We’re not taking extended vacations

Going back to the charging station
Watching young couples taking Tesla vacations
Watch em driving all across the nation
See their posts on Facebook and Instagram
Selfie sticks and swaying trees
Big smiles just like you and me



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I really like the guitar very interesting. Good ol Tesla certainly becoming a topic of inspiration.

Another step forward in the process of bringing electric cars into rocknroll! It's beautifully done, it uses the symbolism of a road song, but adds a whole new layer.

I'm not sure that electric cars will do much when more of California is engulfed by wildfires every year, but you're recording a cultural change.
