It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

A fun time this morning!

After practicing it a few times over the course of the last few days, I sat down and worked up a rough of "Play the Cards". It's all very raw. The bass might be keepable, but nothing else is. I always do that at first. I just rough in a structure with guitar, drums, and bass. With that, then I can start hanging things on it, like other guitar layers, keys, horns. and I can start replacing the raw tracks with better, cleaner performances.

Anyway, with this tune, once the chords for that one ornery little riff in the chorus (which only amounts to two measures at a time) got worked out, the whole rest of the song is falling into place.

It's got kind of an AC/DC feel to it. Very tight and punchy, with three simple chords. And even the electrics are playing first position chords, instead of barres. It's kinda funny to do an LDS tune, based on one of the Savior's Parables (loosly), and set it that way, but it works!
