Brothers Under the Bridge

This is a version – really sketches for a work in progress – of a song by Bruce Springsteen. The story is kind of painful: it concerns a Vietnam veteran living rough in the San Diego mountains with a daughter he’s never seen. When she grows up, she comes looking for him, and this is what he tells her.

When I was working on it in Garageband, I added an extra vocal, sitar and bass, but for the moment I’m leaving it with just a second (slide) guitar. I plan to come back to it.
