I just finished this song a few days ago. Been a work in progress over the last six months. Glad to call it done!
Genre/Style: latin jazz/fuzion/jazz rock
Starts out in a sort of latin songo groove, moves in the 2nd half to more of a hard rock feel.
Creative Vision for the Track:
I wanted to write something that wasn’t so conforming to any specific genre, and something that had some unexpected twists and turns. I think I achieved some of that.
The title comes from the fact that our dog loves to play with socks, especially right out of the laundry basket. And she makes me laugh at how happy and silly she gets.
Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc):
The first half of the song is based on a latin groove, a sort of deconstructed songo pattern. The chords are all one type. Essentially, it’s a Major 7 chord with the 9 in the bass. And the 5 is replaced by the 6.
So the first chord in the melody is an EbM7(no 5, add 13)/F. And then the chords just move in parallel down chromatically. So the solo section is (leaving out the paranthesis) EbM7/F, DM7/E, DbM7/Eb, DM7/E, and repeat.
The second half is essentially modal Eb7 the whole way.
