This week’s podcast is the awesome new song by Shaman’s Harvest called “Dragonfly.” I have to admit I really don’t understand the lyrics (it’s hard enough just to find a good transcription of the lyrics), but the song rocks hardcore. I see it as either a dying person wavering on lucidity or a prediction of the end of the world.
At any rate, I’m noticing my podcasts become more and more challenging, so I find myself pressed for time to record them. (I give myself about an hour or so on Wednesday evenings). Anymore, this includes time to learn the song. That being said, this week, I compromised and did my own arrangement, because, while I know the song pretty well, the faster parts take a little rehearsing to sing along with.
And wouldn’t you know it, I kept screwing up, take after take, and finally I got a pretty good one, and I left out the bridge! D’oh! Oh well … here it is. There are more “so-so” parts than usual, but there are some of my finer musical moments too. That’s why I decided not to risk another take (even without the bridge.) Enjoy!
