Sometimes I write sad songs when I’m thinking about a lost loved one. This song, “Lately” was written and recorded in 1999 about a girl (of course).
Writing out and singing my emotions is incredibly therapeutic.
Vocals recorded with my Shure SM-58 mic, played with my Ovation acoustic that had a very “thin” sound.
I recorded this in 2 tracks: 1st take was playing the rhythm guitar and singing simultaneously; 2nd take was the added guitar licks/lead.
