Let me get a little bit geeky about songwriting and guitars for a second. The idea for the music for this weeks song We Travel On actually came from listening to a recording of a piano player, and wondering if similar approach could be done on guitar. These new D’Addario N6 Alloys definitely helped a lot. They have a quality to them that lets my guitar shine even on a low volume. I am actually extremely happy with the results.
The lyrics kind of took care of them selves. It once again is a very seasonal song. These winter times can be tough to cope… But also I have noticed my self detaching from the concept of staying put more and more. I would like to be able to travel even more in the future (I know, I travel a lot already…) and some day in the future even divide my time between places. And that desire is where the concept of “Travel On” comes from.
Also to me good relationship is almost like journey. We have ups and downs, but if you love each others, you look forward to seeing what is coming around every bend.
