This came from my early experiments with the Telecaster and the Boss ME-25 effects box. I came upon a combination of reverb, delay and harmoniser and a riff to play with it. I eventually developed it into a song of sorts, which is certainly not one I could play solo acoustically, but works well as a complete arrangement.

Given that the guitar parts were simple to play, this was relatively quick to record. I'm very happy with the clarity of the recording and the rest of the parts I put around the simple riffs, although I think my drumming isn't quite as perfectly on the beat as it could be.

The track was provisionally titled "Sidewalk" until a fly started buzzing around the room during the recording sessions. Given that this track also - for me, anyway - brings to mind air travel, it seemed like an ideal title!
