Transcribing My Muse

So I was down at FenCon a few weeks ago and was sitting in the room with guitar in hand noodling about when a chorus came to me. So I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote it down. And I was having the damnedest time making sense of what it was about.

The next day, I pulled out the piece of paper and looked at it again.

That's buttercup, you idiot, not bottlecap!

Oh. Ok, that's better.

I'd think so.

I still don't know what this song is about.

Well, if you don't know, I'm certainly not going to tell you.

Thanks. Thanks for the help.

Any time.

Sometime soon, I'm going to pull out my guitar and look at this again. But there are days when I just feel like a transcriptionist working from a bad audio tape.
