The Football Project, Week 13: Gloomy McDoomerson

This week (a little later than usual, which I’ll explain later) is a big ol’ changeup for the project – a very simple guitar and vocal tune! Recorded with one microphone (the good ol’ Yeti Pro – I still haven’t found a thing it can’t do), no less. The acoustic-type mellow song is something I enjoy doing in the latter stages of a hard rock/metal project like this one… and this felt like the right time to do it (considering I know how I want the next three weeks to go). This is a standard electric guitar in Drop-D tuning, recorded on the neck pickup through a Roland Micro Cube amplifier. A small operation for a small song – only seemed fitting, really…

Lyrically, this one falls into a pattern I’ve hit a few times during this project – the bummed-out fan who still tunes in anyway… probably out of a force of habit more than anything. Since I live near Buffalo, I figure I have to have a pretty high authority on this sort of thing, wouldn’t you say? So yeah – gloom and doom over a mellow guitar thing. To further drive the pattern home, the lyrics at the end are lifted directly from Week Six’s tune.

So there you have it. A nice little acoustic-style number to break up the heaviness… and a few days late because I lost my voice over the weekend (which you can probably still hear the effects in this recording). BUT the show must go on! Enjoy this one and I’ll see you next week with what looks to be a pretty crazy one.

    I grant you Buffalo, but I am surrounded by Cleveland Brown fans, thankyouverymuch.
