    Default Pressure on a Man - dark folkie tune!

    This song came on me in a rush just a couple of Fridays ago. It was surreal, almost like it was being dictated to me.

    I tried this out as an opener at an open mic last Thursday, and now THIS is my opening tune! It will sound neutered here on the internet, but in person, I think it has a strong effect. When other people are up there playing their chimey suspended chords and singing wistful love songs, this song is like Metallica. I try to "be" the character, and the MC said I was "very theatrical."

    This isn't really mixed. This is supposed to be a "work tape," a bare bones, off-the-cuff recording to give someone the idea, say if some multiplatinum country star needed a heavy tune for his record.

    Here's the original version. Slightly different lyrics. People told me some of the lyrics fit awkwardly and I should trim them, but maybe it was better the way I had it. Decisions, decisions!

    Mot bad, Art. Reminds me of the old country sound.
    Not sure those lyrics fit for todays country stars though. A little too evil.
