This is one of those songs where I tried to do each instrument in one complete take in order to use it. Just a dumb rule for myself. What this means that if I make a mistake I either have to live with the mistake or do the entire take over. Also there is no automation of any kind. The volume controls remain untouched, no fade-ins or fade-outs.

I recorded it this way for two primary reasons. First I hope to get better at my instruments, doing a hundred vocal takes is going to make one a better singer. Same with drums, although I did fewer takes on drums. The second reason was a desire to create a sense of someone playing alone, especially at the end.

I feel the version on Spotify is too thin on the bottom end. So I have improved the mix. Look for the improved mix on my Bandcamp page.
