It’s almost spring! The sun is out! The snow is… still on the ground here in Rochester. But it’s ok because there’s spring training baseball on TV! To celebrate the really nice weather and the great American summer sport, I present the first track from the first Baseball Project. I had visited my brother who was living in Austin at the beginning of April 2005, then found a game being played in Houston on TV a few weeks later. Well, what better place to start the project? I guess my goal was to make this “three acoustic guitars and a shaker” tune nice and relaxing enough that it overrides the fact that it’s in 5/4 time. I’d like to think I pulled that off.
Instruments, production, mixing by me. From The Baseball Project. Recorded in 2005.
