Uncle Zeus

I wanted to write a song that told a story. I considered various topics, but ultimately found the prospect of tying Greek mythology to the modern dysfunctional family proved too attractive an idea to pass up.

As a sidenote, I particularly liked my guitar solo in this song. About half the notes you hear were composed deliberately, and the other half were improvised. I like having a direction, while still maintaining sufficient freedom to explore the song "in the moment."

Enjoy!
