“We Are Where We Are” track-by-track guide-- 11. Oceans
This is the newest track on the album, an instrumental composed and recorded on the same day in spring 2012. I was feeling some kind of nostalgia, some kind of bittersweetness about distances of space and time, nothing I could quite put into words. That's when I just sit and plug in my guitar and wait for the feeling to come out in music. And it did. Most of the guitar work on this album is on my much-loved Danelectro U-2 (with a few Strat moments you'll probably be able to identify) but apart from a track of Nashville-tuned rhythm guitar, this one's all done on my silverburst Agile LP copy as I had it lying around; it's fun to play.
