Just finished a new one. Here's a rough demo - https://youtu.be/QSPceT3vG_w Let me know what you think. Probably the most enigmatic, swampy, mournful thing I've done. For the future, I hear accompaniment with a standup bass, lapsteel or slide or fiddle, and Tennessee Three ticky tack drum beat. FYI and off topic, for the guitar geeks out there -- I used a Martin D-18 outfitted with a soundhole DeArmond pickup (like the one Lightnin Hopkins used), run into an old Fender Deluxe Reverb.
Thanks so much. This song started with the open tuning, fingerpicked guitar vamp. Then the imagery in the verses came to me very quickly. The chorus took a long time to come to me. It was as if the song revealed itself to me when it was good and ready.
