ABOUT

Song based on D scale and played with 4 chords. Use capo on 2nd fret and play with C scale.

Creating this song was as sudden as a sneeze. We figured out the plan, played together, and I sang tunes that felt good. Then I refined it and the song came together fast. I wanted to show the feeling of beginning in the dark, like being born at night. The song talks about starting in a cold, dark childhood, feeling lost, and finding your way through the darkness. It’s an idea I wanted to make into a song for a long time, but never did until now.
