An original poem/lyric by an old friend Alan Sagin (our sons grew up playing tennis doubles together) gave me the kickstart inspiration and I fleshed it out in my own style.
I experimented with increasing the tempo to a point that it was less pedestrian but not so fast that I couldn’t still fingerpick the ‘hand in hand’ chorus. This speed limit is either an age thing (as I used to be able to fingerpick like a demon) or is due to the configuration of the particular chords/notes.
Making the strummed chords ‘zing’ required some EQ attention as the strumming style often used the fleshy finger ends during up-strokes, quite ‘dull’ as opposed the down-strokes played with fingernails.
