So here’s the new re-recording of “Some Ordinary Troubles.” You can see from the description of the original (read and listen here) that this was kind of a throw-away song. So I knew going into the re-record I had to do right by it. Make it into something.
I think it’s a little more of a complete song now. Definitely something I might be persuaded to sing out from time to time.
I didn’t change too much, though. It’s in the same key. It’s still kind of a blues-type tune. (Although, it’s a little more folk-song-oriented, I’ll admit that.) All the words are the same, for the most part, except for the last verse, which is new. I needed one more to kinda round-out the layout of the song.
So there ya have it. I think this new one sounds very 2011, if ya know what I mean. And the one from last year sounds very last year. If you’ve been listening that long you probably picked that up, though.
Now, please remember that I have two shows this weekend….
On Friday I’m playing a benefit for the Building Stage called “Terror and Cowboy Songs.” Only 5 bucks to get in and cheap booze. I go on at 10pm (or soon after 10pm) and play for about an hour (or more). The facebook invite has some info for ya.
See ya at one, or see ya at both.
