Better Days is the first Song Sketch that I recorded in my home studio, The Blue Spoon. I laid down the backing tracks first, and then sang and played the lead guitar licks at the same time live directly into LUNA, my recording creation software.
I decided to start recorded my original songs as sketches and build a database of my songs. The song sketches are rough demos of the songs and not intended as finished works.
Better Days was one of those rare songs that comes out of the air in a flash. It’s based on a true story (with creative embellishments). I woke up the next morning and wrote down the words in a stream of consciousness.
