Not too much of an exciting backstory for this one; I wrote it mid-March on/for the guitar (which was a first, I almost always write on the uke) and it was my first real experience with fingerpicking. I finally got a decent recording of it in June.
I initially wrote it without the “ooohs” at the beginning/middle/end, and every time I listened back to a recording I felt like something was missing. Once I added them in (they’re the same melody as the chorus) I knew it was as it should be.
It was inspired by true-ish events, but as always, creative liberties were taken. I hope you like it!
