    This is one strange, weird, dark, brooding bordering on ugly piece of music.

    I knew I wanted to do something about the ongoing pandemic, and I knew I wanted it to be kind of dark and VERY uncomfortable. I decided to put the opening idea in 5/4 because it can be an unsettling time signature when we're so accustomed to 4/4 time.

    After playing the riff and moving pieces around I actually landed on the opening riff changing time signature each measure. The opening statement alternates between 6/4 and 4/4 each measure. I suppose you could count it in 10, but I think the alternating 6/4, 4/4 is the most accurate.

    After this, the song settles into 4/4 for a while, but then cycles back to the alternating 6 & 4. It's odd and definitely unsettling.

    The guitars are the PRS 594 as the rhythm guitar. I also added my Anderson Super Raven to the mix for a little different flavor. The lead guitar is the 24-08; man this guitar just sings!

    The mix is my first pass and will need some EQ tweaks, but I think it's a good start.

    As always comments are GENUINELY appreciated!!!
