Today, having had the studio [MY studio] available to Me, I diverted My attention away from a dobro piece I was working on with a Friend, Gil Borguez, and decided to set out to create something brand new.
I always know the Marc Weidenbaum’s [and Everyone’s] disquiet junto project will furnish some ideas, should I wish to participate; thus, I checked My email, and discovered this week’s assignment, “Jam Time [part 1],” and just, simply, ‘got to work.’
The notes and three-chord-structure of “Monk’s Placid Pillow,” I realized earlier – but after the fact – somewhat loosely parallel, and carry the rudimentary chord structure, of My Friend, Gil’s dobro song, “Cry.” I can’t be blamed, really, because Gil’s song is all I’ve been working on for days – it’s fixed in My darned psyche!
Cautiously, and desiring to not ‘finish’ the piece, I ceased My work upon it, and submit it here for the consideration of Others. I uploaded a 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV file to SoundCloud for Others to download, but can provide a higher-quality, 32-bit floating point version, if anyone desires one.
