Some time ago micayetoca told me (it was here) to add some percussion to a song, even if it was just a jar of rice. Well, I've taken such a jar from the kitchen to play on spanish cakes. I've added cheap percussion too. Hope you like it.

I started commenting about the rice, which is really right on, but then the song picked up. This is a great jam. Oh, yea, the rice is perfectly subtle.

Yeah! Let's hear it for rice! Film canisters and plastic Easter egg shells are fun to put stuff in, too -- rice, sugar, ball-chains from bank pens...

That's a nice little fake ending about a minute in.

I quite liked it. I felt like I was somehow invited to be part of it, if only I could find a jar of rice.

Thanks. I recorded the rhythm track years back and I looped it to build something upon it. The fake ending is just the end of the first cycle. Upon cycle 2, there is the guitar solo and some percussion. Cycle 3 allows a fade out.
