Upside Down

Liner Notes

Decided to try the challenge I saw for improvising a song (Max Vanremmerden's post to the Challenges forum - thanks for the idea Max!), but I multitracked so each is it's own improv building on the others so I guess it isn't actually a "true" improv.

Did a drum track, then improv rhythm guitar, vox, and solo guitar.

Lyrics

My life is upside down
No really, literally I mean it

Got a team of engineers
Can do 24 projects
48 to be done

Got a house with a big fat mortgage
$260k left on the note
Tried to refinance… appraised at $220
What’s the point man?

We had a layoff at work
Had to let two friends go
Most days it seems they got the good deal

Just changed bosses, thought I’d talk it over
Said “man I’m overwhelmed”
He asked me to quantify “overwhelmed”
You f#cking kidding me?

My life is upside down
No really, literally I mean it
Got a team of engineers can do 24 projects
48 to be done

Got a house, with an upside down mortgage
… a layoff at work

Man they keep piling stuff on for me to do
You think I’m gettin’ a raise?
Man, keep dreaming…
