Well, the third round of the playoffs is over, so it’s time for a new song. If you follow the sport at all, you most likely have heard that hockey players are an incredibly superstitious bunch. If they even put on their equipment in a different order, their heads might explode. One of the many superstitions in hockey pertains to the trophies for winning the conference finals – it’s supposedly bad luck to even touch them. Sure enough, in both 2014 (the year this song was actually written) and 2015, neither team touched the conference champion trophies. This song is written from the perspective of the neglected hardware.
Like I mentioned before in this project, I always enjoy when a rock/metal album suddenly goes acoustic for one or two songs. One fairly common spot for a metal album’s lone acoustic track is right before the last song (i.e.: Track 9 on a 10-track album). So what better time to go acoustic then right now? For you inquisitive guitar dudes, this song is in Drop-D-flat tuning (Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb, or C# G# C# F# A# D# on your tuner). I also enjoyed adding all the percussion – this song features cajon, darbuka, tambourine, and claves. Enjoy, let me know what you think, and I’ll see you next time when we finally wrap this puppy up.
