Well as I'm,
as I'm playing True, I, I can think of.
I mean, the way I play True is, is really
just set it up,
first of all, with a really nice the
gentle vibe going on.
But its, when I first wrote this I had it
mind that it would,
that it was a pop song.
It was really going to be for a pop singer
I had the idea of a, a little bit of
comping on a, on a piano.
You know the way Elton John accompanies
himself on piano a little bit of that
Billy Joel the way that they, they, they
Little voicings in the middle of the
This really sets the whole thing.
Sets the mood.
I'm setting the mood.
Rather than going straight into the, into
That's beginning to tell the story.
It's like sitting down and saying to
somebody once upon a time
I was in a walking on in the woods or
You know it, it has that kinda atmosphere.
It doesn't feel like.
You know, I was once upon a time,
I was, I was driving along at 120 miles
per hour in a car.
And, you know it, it's, it immediately
starting to tell a story.
That this is a
It's gonna be something that's very chill,
and laid back, and.
And this is the start of the story,
once upon a time.
Now we start telling the story.
Little phrases, as you would say.
You say a little phrase.
And then to set something up, to set the
And then, you would affirm that first
So, that, that phrase that I'm using,
That's establishing something
That is something that hooks, hooks
somebody onto the story.
When you tell, start telling a story,
if you say, once upon a time or I remember
once something happened to me.
And that brings someone in.
And then you start telling the story,
and you say, you start telling, setting
And you start saying what it was.
we're starting to expand on the story.
Melodically and harmonically.
So we're moving away from that.
Deep, deep chord.
The same motif again.
phrasing this in the same kinda way that a
good storyteller would tell a story.
They wouldn't just blurt everything out
and say, yeah,
I was walking down the road.
And then a guy came along and sorta a
storyteller will draw you in.
So, I was walking down the road, and just
looked around the corner,
the sun was shining.
And we kinda just went through the leaves
there, and then,
as I went round the corner.
We're around the corner now.
And we see something.
It stops you in your tracks.
So, I'll start telling the story again.
Cuz people need to be reminded sometimes.
And that's why, that's why I,
I always keep repeating myself all the
time when I'm telling people stories.
So, that in, in our mind is.
That's the story I'm coming up with.
But that's the, that is doing the same
kinda emotions if you tell a story.
Right, I've got to tell you this story.
It's about something.
And once upon a time I was walking along,
and I went through these woods.
And the, the sun was just coming through
And I went round the corner and something
Teach the world.
