These Things Too Shall Pass

Posted by: TGST

Being in a 3 piece band, not every arrangement is feasible for when we play live. The impetus for this song was a lyric: “These things too shall pass” and a riff originally composed on the violin.

At any given time I’m either on guitar or piano, my bandmate Blaine on bass or guitar, and then whoever happens to be playing percussion on…uh, percussion. Therefore, the folkier original version got stripped down to a straight ahead rock song, with the violin riff brought over to electric guitar.

When we play it live, it really gets a shot in the arm from being all electric, however, I like the instrument variation in the original recording.

Thought you all might enjoy a real world version and a “best case scenario” version of a song.
