November’s free download is something a little different – a work tape for “Blackbirds”, written by myself and Ben Glover. Just after a song is finished, songwriters generally record it for reference until a demo recording can be made. These days the recording is usually done with a mobile phone, a computer or other digital recording device. When Ben and I were finishing writing “Blackbirds”, I liked the guitar part he was playing so much that I asked him if we could record another version with him playing it in my key. We recorded it up in my writing room, and this is the resulting work tape.
