Stupidly clever.

IN DREAMS THEY DANCEs work was in progress for months.

The very first idea for the guitar part came to me when I was tuning my guitar. I didn’t think of it as a serious idea though, mainly because as every guitarist out there can tell, the guitar picking pattern is about the dumbest imaginable: The most obvious thing you can play with harmonics.

Anyway, the riff kept coming back to me and I slowly started to appreciate its naivety.

So I recorded the stupid part with a steel string acoustic guitar and doubled it with a nylon one. After that the song really wrote itself. The flute doing the melody and a bit of mellotron.

Pretty cute little tune it turned out to be.
