Twelve-bar blues with a twist or two; narrates a ghost story I was told as a child by an old Gullah grandmother.

This is the first song I've actually written original lyrics for and sung to on iCompositions, so I guess it's pretty significant to me. I'm proud of how it sounds.

I never thought I'd go back to the blues, by the way. I learned it at my daddy's knee, and despite what else he may've done wrong, teaching me the blues was not a mistake, I realize now.

Drum loops, me on the rest of it.

Sounds like David's been listening to some James Cotton. VERY very good job here man! Good stuff. Only issue here-- the drums are the only thing sounding flat. If they were double or triple tracked, I think they'd have the proper depth this song needs!

Yes, I used the koto sound (obviously I played the blues riffs on the keyboard, however).

Great job on this one, David! I love the lyrics -- written in authentic patois. Your performance fits the lyrics and musical bed beautifully. Wonderful work!
