If I had to explain what’s going on in WIND SHANTY, I would probably say the following:

Listen carefully the chord you hear at 15 seconds in. That chord is really just all the open strings of the guitar, in standard tuning. This magnificent find gave the whole idea for the rest of the tune.

I think the title came to me when I was about halfway done, and it really guided me nicely during the rest of the production.

Thanks wind, you mighty messer of hairdos!

Coming up, the rest of the elements.
