This was a sort-of-answer to a question I asked myself: what would an Adele song for a guy sound like?
I guess the answer is, Al Green, kinda.
My favorite thing about it is the chord progression, especially the I7-vii7-III-ii7-v7 (Fmaj7-Em7-A7-Gm7-Bbm7) at the beginning.
I tried backing vocals but couldn't really make them work.
Some tech blabla --
Guitar is my Hagstrom Viking through Scuffham S-Gear.
Drums are NI Abbey Road 70s, set to funk
Vocals went through a budget ART tube pre-amp
The Rhodes is the neo-soul suitcase, although it's mixed kinda low
The Hammond is the Native Instruments Vintage Organs B3
