Mighty Fine Day
I wrote this one last week and arranged it in a day. Took a bit longer to perform it to demo standard, though. There's an MP3 version here (3.2MB) or streaming here. The studio bootleg version can be streamed here and downloaded here.
I was inspired by the drinks cabinet behind the counter at a cafe in Kenmore. I was waiting for the bank to open on Monday morning and ordered a coffee and toast. The fridge cabinet behind the counter was full of beers and wines - I wondered who might be drinking them at this hour. What might take a person to the place where they'd to that?
On the way back home after the bank the chord progression and rythm popped into my head and the rest just wrote itself that day. I need to find a good blues guitarist and piano payer to make it sound good, though. It's in B, too ...
Update: If you feel generous you can now buy the version of this song released on The Genre Benders' debut CD "I am leaving! I am leaving!" from iTunes, or GroupieTunes, or Payplay.FM. If you have a different favourite online store, search for it there and if it's not there, let me know so I can put it there.
Mighty fine day
Well I woke up this mornin'
I got you on my mind
But - uuhhh
Gonna get me some breakfast
Yes, it's my first beer of the mornin'
The basic chord pattern is: B F#m A E
