Liner Notes:

prompt leaf

Never quite figured where this was going. Needs another verse and some arrangement.

Guitars: '94 Fender Mexi-Telecaster
Amp: '78 Marshall Mk II
Note: Skirmish: 1 hour to write and record


New Leaf

It might be time
To turn over a new leaf
To get in line
With a solid framework of belief

Might make some headway
However brief
Could be the best way
Start today to heal the grief.

Well its got awesome bones! Great for a skirmish! Cant think of a much higher compliment but it had a bit of a Hendrix feel.

That's a really rockin' edge to the tune and the lyrics do feel like they want to develop some... but what a great starting point!

wow, that comparison to Hendrix is not lying! (and maybe a little electric Neil Young stomp?) --- great feel, great write, great playing.. really coiled intensity here, interesting chords and I really like the lyric...

great work!!

I like the sound and the groove, especially the deep bass. I like the line about it might be time to get in line with a solid framework, kinda an a-ha moment for the character, but I'm not sure he's going to. I've been thinking, I should give up drinking...someday, maybe.

Your versatility always impresses me, and this intense rock sound was very unexpected and quite enjoyable. Deserves the extra love to complete it’s mission, I’d say.

Love the lyric here - strong clear message - and the rock groove serves as a great foundation. The start of the music lured me right in!

The brevity of the lyrics say so much. Nice rockin' music to drive the words forward
