    What was my bright idea? Trying to put a bunch of opposites together in a song. Modern & vintage sounds, stock guitar licks & trying totally unique phrasing, simple & complex progression, all at the same time.

    Everything went swimmingly along until the last part, the solos. What I quickly found that my simple 4 chord progression had an odd interval for the last chord and due to that, improvising in one key gets stale and sounded pathetic within a couple bars. I had to dig down deep into my inner Jan Hammer to pull off the synth solo but after about 50 semicrappy takes on the guitar solo I said to myself .... "Well this was your bright idea".

    Eventually I got it done and the name stuck, thanks for listening.

    I smiled all the way through that and actually chuckled a couple of times.
    Totally happy goofy out of left field piece of music with lots of fun stuff.
    Thank you for ending my long day on such a dizzy happy note.
    I really liked it a lot. I would use it for my "wake up" music.
    :)
