As you noticed, if you have the album, "Great Salt Lake" is an instrumental song.
I had been performing "Bouree" by Ian Anderson / Jethro Tull / Bach and wanted my own instrumental flute song.
I don't know how or when or what inspired it, but one day this song took root in my brain.
So I, who almost always composes on the acoustic guitar, decided to figure out a chord pattern to go with my cool flute riff.
I recorded the acoustic guitar, added the flute, and the song was done. Well kinda.
Because I used "Bouree" to impress people when I didn't have a band handy, I started using "Great Salt Lake" to impress people. This caused it to shift away from the acoustic guitar structure a little.
When we dumped the original 4-track session into the ProTools, I realized that I had changed the song in a few places.
So now, as I write this, I've added some percussion and a new acoustic guitar track. I'm preparing to record on top of what I have. I'm still deciding whether I will fit into the song or take it over entirely, eliminating the previous flutes which I really like.
So, let's see what I do.
