Well, after a two hour wrestling match with “Tear in You Hand,” i’ve come to the conclusion that not all ideas which begin in my head wind up sounding right once outside of it. Just like the piano in “Crashing” (which sounds quite lovely on it’s own, but clashes like hell with the guitar), an all-me version of “Tear in Your Hand” seems like it would sound cool, but it really really doesn’t. The song is at once too low and too high for me, and even though the microphone generally makes up for what i lack in range, i just can’t carry the song with any kind of enthusiastic tempo. So, it’ll stay on the tape for posterity, but i think i’m done with that little experiment. So… um… did i have something else to record?
