My latest musical opus was recorded entirely with GarageBand software. I quite like it – I’m a pedestrian musician at best, and the ability to loop in real guitar licks and drum beats is a whole lotta fun. I’m not entirely enamored with the final recording – the instrument levels at the bridge gets really wonky for some reason, and I don’t have the patience to fix it – but I really like my “guitar solo,” if you know what I mean.
As for the song itself, the main line has been kicking around for at least a decade, ever since my brother-in-law first asked me, “How did you get so wrong?” I’ve just never known what to do with it. I’ve long wanted to record a straight-ahead rock and roll tune, and this may be the closest I’ve ever come to doing such.
Don’t look for any thematic content therein – I’m not even sure what “bad lovin'” is. (Perhaps I need to see a diagram or something.)
For Mrs. Cornell’s sake, I should also note that it’s not autobiographical.
