Liner Notes: 

I've been experimenting with building tracks starting by dropping a bass line against the drum track, rather than recording the guitars first. I seem to find a groove more easily that way, so I did this one in 6/8 to practise in something that wasn't 4/4. Still very much in the yacht rock / loud blues category, though. And why not?

And the title? Well, it means that for every letter of the alphabet I now have a 50/90 song with a title beginning with it. It's kind of a secret challenge I've set myself for fifty/ninety over the last few years. I don't think anybody's cottoned on yet.

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

Awesome concept (the song for-every-letter thing) and this is a pleasant tune. It does have a bit of a yacht-rock feel to it though it still feels edgier, somehow, than what I associate with the yacht-rock genre.

I love the 6/8 feel a lot.

I see listings on Taxi for Yacht Rock and was curious to hear it. Nice ear candy! Picturing myself on a cruise. Ah...
