Good evening! Despite being down about my alumnus UConn losing to San Diego not too long ago, I am happy to bring you our latest Laptop Session. I hope today finds you enjoying your upcoming Easter weekend, and if you’re like me, glued to your TV set keeping up with the NCAA tournament.

Today I bring you another Wallflowers song, and my third session from their latest album “Rebel, Sweetheart”. It’s an extremely catchy track called “I Am A Building”. I always liked this song since I first heard it because of the catchy strumming pattern and drumbeat. Looking back on the writing of songs for my album, I think the strumming pattern from “Home” is inspired from this song.

It took me a few takes to get one I was happy with for this song. I actually had three versions, and the one I have selected is the most solid. This was take #17, and despite that, I still appear to be having fun with it!

Look for Jim’s next addition to our series tomorrow, and check back on Monday when I bring you a new addition to our series.

And as far as views are concerned, I expect to break 6,000 views tonight or tomorrow. Talk about an increase in viewership! Thank you so much to all loyal Laptopsessions.com visitors.

This song comes per request from Dylan81 on Youtube.

I’m going for the hat trick on Wallflowers songs, and doing the album opener from “Rebel, Sweetheart” called “Days of Wonder”. It is a terrific opening song full of cheer, reflection, the usual writing of Jakob Dylan.

This song has a driving beat that is difficult to reproduce on the acoustic guitar, and I have only learned how to play this song for 24 hours now. Still, this version is nice and cool. I hope you enjoy it.

This also represents my first non-quick capture attempt at these videos. All i’ve figured out so far is how to cut off the “hitting the stop button” part at the end, and I got text at the beginning. As far as the song is concerned, I like how it turned out, but from now on i’ll try to increase the lighting in the room – especially when filming at night.

Thank you for your request! If there is a song you’d like me to consider for fusco-moore.com’s Laptop Sessions, please send me a message!
