And, welcome back! Today is Wednesday, and here on the best acoustic music blog ever conceived, that means it’s time for an original song! Today, I bring you a cut off of my new album, “Halfway There”, available now at http://jimfusco.com.
This song is the most personal one on the album and is really the most blunt song I’ve written in a long time. It’s not meant to be angry or anything- it’s meant to ask questions of both myself and someone else.
Basically, I’m saying: “Hey, I’ve been trustworthy for over six years and still I feel that I’m not being fully trusted.” The song pretty much speaks for itself after that.
This was the last song I wrote for the album, save for the bonus track. To me, I can definitely tell that this was written after the bulk of the other songs. Songs for an album always have a “feel” to them and it took me quite a while to record this track and make it “fit”. But, I love the tune and the chord progression. Fans of Stone Temple Pilots will hear the similarity between the riff of this song and the one in “Plush”, which I was listening to a lot at the time. I didn’t realize it until afterward. But, the similarity is just like an, “Oh, yeah, I see what you mean,” more than anything.
So, I hope you enjoy this original song. It’s really one of my favorites off of the new album and the chord progression to the chorus is one of my favorites to play, too. I’ll be back next Tuesday with yet another acoustic cover song on my normal day for posting music videos. Have a great day!
