New Original Tune on Newest Guitar

December 28, 2009 at 3:42 pm Leave a comment

This is the first original tune & recording I’ve done with my most recent acquisition, the Gibson ES-175.

The arrangement is my “power trio” of guitar, bass and drums — I played the guitar and bass parts and used heavily edited loops for the drums.

The title is “Rama Lama”. Perhaps you remember the little Ogden Nash poem:

The one-L lama, he’s a priest
The two-L llama, he’s a beast
And I would bet a silk pyjama
There isn’t any three-L lllama

You might also remember Arthur C. Clarke’s scifi masterpiece, Rendevous with Rama. IIRC, the explorers believed that the “Ramans”  had their appendages in threes.  Then of course, there’s the whole “Ramalama Dingdong” thing. For some reason that all came to mind  when I was working on this. Hey, naming instrumentals is tough.
