I Don’t Care - Music: Tom Welty; Vocals and Lyrics: Thad Ekdahl
Another one from the vaults, circa 2002. The first song we recorded in a studio. I have mixed feelings about my overdubs in this. The original song had a very simple but catchy guitar rhythm, but with this version I added several “lead” tracks to it. And I can’t really call them leads, they are more jangly arpeggios (a la R.E.M.). But in hindsight they were unnecessary. I do still like the octave solo I added at 1:50, and the by the end of the song I’m using less arpeggios and more strumming, which is how the song should have been from the beginning.
