    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14

    I thought that was a lot of fun! Very Stones-ish vibe, I think Wattage would really dig this.

      Thanks, man! We definitely heard and felt that vibe as we were working up the lead-off track, All This Time, so we leaned into it. Other tracks ended up feeling different, so we just tried to go with what the tune called for. We even ended up doing the song our drummer wrote and sang, Pretend, without drums.

          Great to see the breakdown. I don't ever keep notes on what I use- lots of times I am figuring it out in the moment, and I don't have a lot of time to write it all down. It is really useful to have, though, especially if trying to replicate the sound live.

              I can hear your reference to the Stones vibe. I listened to "All This Time" and was also thinking Georgia Satellites. Might be the vocals. I enjoyed it. Well done tone4days !

                  Very cool, congratulations.

                  I hear a lot of influences, Petty, Stones, Dylan, Springsteen. I like it.
