Ultrasound

May 13, 2022 11:58 AM

We had our first ultrasound where the baby really looks like a baby, and I of course had to write a song. Guitar is tuned way down (low string is an A).

babe before i saw you
thought that i had seen
every shade of blue
ultrasound
waves bounce off you
and reveal
that wasn’t true

and though you’re not here now
and the size of an avocado
i see you
and maybe you
can hear me
sing to you

That low A is sick. This is a Corduroy song thru and thru. Nicely done!

Thank you all! Glad you appreciate the low A, grog. I recorded a much cleaner one tuned many steps up plus capo. I wish I could have it both ways. Going so low is just too inconsistent though, constant tuning. I dream of one day getting a baritone classical guitar.

I love this, both the music and the sentiment and inspiration. Congratulations! That's so exciting.

I've been messing around with a seven string guitar to get a low A without it going all rubber-bandy. But I thought that this worked well as is.
