Get Out Now
Get out now was initially an experiment in combining a version of a Jimmy Hendrix riff Dominic was messing with and Tim's idea for a song about getting the heck out of town any way you can. Aaron was listening to the initial rehearsals on the song and his take on it was that it was about a guy who had moved to the city, tried to make it, but wasn’t successful due to his country roots. He goes to a bank for a loan, but is turned away, so he just takes all the money anyway and takes off out of town headed back to his neck of the woods. Of course, he is a country gentleman, so he tips his hat to the ladies before getting away! Aaron has a wild imagination and did an awesome job writing the verses with Dominic helping him along the way.
We called our old friend David Byrd from Echo Hollow to play banjo on this and also kidnapped Greg Presley from the Presleys Jubilee one night after his show to play harmonica since he wouldn’t agree to do it. Michael recorded 4 separate guitars to give this song a REALLY big sound and Doms mean vocal added just the right amount of angst. All of us sang harmony on the choruses. The Aah part with the boot stomping and clapping in the middle was added in a second version of the song. The boots were recorded by actual muddy boots on a hard wooden floor in our studio. Then we had to clean up the mud.
