Still Shameless: Walking Away 2021 (Draft rework)

©2021 Michael Raven

EDIT: I just realized that I was so tired that I forgot to do the proper chorus from the original version. Silly Rabbit… The song will definitely change now that I realize this error. Leaving the post up anyway just to show how stupid I can get at times.

Here is a rework of a song originally written around 1985, last recorded live in 1987. This is a work in progress and is incomplete. There are no vocals. Current arrangement is mine and does not entirely respect the 1987 recording. This song was actually (I am pretty certain) my first complete song written entirely by me while I was trying to first teach myself how to play bass guitar. There were other lyrical efforts and other “arrangements” before I knew how to play anything and thought I might be a singer.

I had nothing going on tonight and it’s been on my mind to play around with some of the old Shadowspawn songs (and not just those, but a few other older songs as well) for quite some time now to see what I might do with them. I couldn’t tell you for certain what the guitarist did — he did a lot of noodling on most of our songs, so it’s hard to say what he was thinking. So the guitars only passingly resemble what was in that 1987 recording. What you hear in this draft reworking may not be the final version, as I am just playing around still. Here is what you hear and where it might go… All instruments are sequenced by me.
