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:
