The Bitter and The Cold

I recorded another one of my songs this weekend. I think I'm improving a bit with the production.

I wrote this last year during FAWM. It was my first try with open tuning (D) and a slide. The process of songwriting, singing, playing instruments, recording, learning and using special software is fascinating to me. It's exhilarating, hearing what I've created. Sometimes I think I'm not even making conscious choices, I just get going in a zone, and the music comes through me.

Anyway, give it a listen:

The Bitter and The Cold - Bernie Ronyak

I was just looking for something to go with my D7sus4 & G fingerpicking rotation, and stumbled upon Norah Jones. A google listing for those two chords shows someone's perceived piano tablature of Jones' Don't Know Why having those chords and Em7 & A7. Good additions, still needs some transitions, though.
