To my tiny throes and struggles

by heartscore



Actually I listen again to a lot of Classic Rock. And when I compare records of the past to today’s artist I register a loss of diversity. On albums like „Led Zeppelin 2“ or Queen’s „A day at the races“ there are so many different styles gathered together on one album. And the song-structure also changes from track to track. Many new records sound the same throughout one album. Especially within my desired genre, Metal, many bands seem to repeat one approach again and again. But I think they are just following a trend and commands of the music industry. Very likely the record company will say: „What do you want with this piano ballad?“ You are a f $%§$%&/§ Metal-band. But I am in the lucky situation, that nobody can tell me, what to put on an album and I want to have more diversity on the next one. You can expect a piano-ballad, an acoustic instrumental, a Pop-song and a Rock-instrumental besides the usual heavy stuff. And this is exactly, what you get below: A piece for steel-string acoustic guitar solo. Musically I think it’s a spanish mood paired with a splash of Jazz and a Waltz rhythm.
The title of this little tune is derived from another Crane-poem and it goes like this:

If there is a witness to my little life,
To my tiny throes and struggles,
He sees a fool;
And it is not fine for gods to menace fools

The artwork is taken from an old illustration by Gustave Dore, which shows Don Quixote
