Who says a few simple chords can't send shivers down the spine? This brief interlude, a delicately plucked solo acoustic offering, does just that. The echo of the room captures the mood exquisitely.
Joe Satriani says:
”I was working on a song called Heartbeats that will probably be a bonus track on iTunes, and I started improvising this intro that started to evolve. It was all about being alone with your soul, so the message was pretty heavy. Then I thought, It’s too bad this piece has to be in front of Heartbeats, and gradually I saw that it could stand on its own.
“I was channeling my parents, and I was thinking of where they would go mentally in their need for solitude. I had to get to that place to get the courage to see it as a stand-alone song.”
