Penny Loafer Shoes is a song about a comical character I created who takes account of all the things he's "Got".
He finds he's got charm, education, high-minded goals, people around him that care, and a passion for security. Nevertheless, life is an unpredictable roll of the dice, and sometimes you miss your ship or come up short one lucky shoe, a sock, or a glove.
Be forewarned, this tune has some minor explicit lyrics, which some may think of as "unnecessary BS", and thusly they are copiously identified as such.
The tune's birthday was September 24, 2014, and it is part of the FEC 2014 Collection. My lord, it's been nearly 10 years already. This is a revised version with a modified bassline, drums and vocals. Some minor adjustments to the lyrics, as well. The guitar work is the same, as I'm now way too old to play the crazy riffs contained herein.
Sort of Frank Zappa-ish in style. Some will likely suggest I cut the beginning slow build, but when I tried that, it seemed too sudden, so I just left it in. You can jump forward 45 seconds to get to the meat. Wow! This one is 7:13 long, but don't let the length scare you away from this carefree and fun tune.
Guitar Rig 6
Fender Strat with modified pickups and a maple neck
Remixed and Mastered with Neutron 4 and Ozone 10.
I hope this puts a smile on your face!
