Hello KC
Yes, a 13/8-7/8 groove with interlocking poly rhythms so dense the hair stands up on the back of yer neck if you attempt to count the pulses. Yet the One is huge.
You might check into this one here. She is a main protagonist of the "Green New Deal". Which among other things promises to remove every vestige of modern industrial society from America in ten years. This gal is so woke, she has predicted that without her inspired intervention the world will end in 12 years.
I could not think this stuff up, it's beyond me...

Extra Stuff
That guitar was done as per the usual first take sparkle method and then thickened up with harmony lines. There was a fairly dense opening section that I held back, that is joined in a 4-5-1 cadence clearly heard here. The whole experience remains in "C" throughout, but it sounds like the key is changing because of the modal interchanges. That's the secret sauce here.

Zappa Influence?
Actually most of the guitar work is ala Duane Allman. I made a specific effort to include all the stuff I stole from Duane's trick bag, every sequence includes a specific thing Duane pioneered. The Allman Brothers would certainly have ventured further into odd times and mixed meters had the 24 year old Duane not been killed in a motor cycle accident. Such a terrible loss, in my personal estimation his influence surpasses even Hendrix.

He's baaaa-aaa-aaaack...
With another aural assault on the human condition.

BTW, lyrics here are easier to understand than "on that Wooly Bully record."

Love the Allman-esque licks!

Naw, I am still gone...
Really? The line about A.O.C. moving like a barmaid is discernible? I got to work on my masking.
I maybe the only Duane flame keeper here anymore. His ability to spontaneously move between different kinds of licks and textures still inspires all these years later...

PS
Oh great... another self-anointed socio-political pseudo-savior. Such unmitigated arrogance! But then, one is hard pressed to find anyone more "righteous" than a radical leftist ideologue. They are beyond criticism... downright "transcendent."

Meanwhile the PC lemming herd---under the direction of the great (blood soaked) pointing finger of socialist demogoguery---continues its march towards the abyss.

There. I've said my piece. Thanks again Daug for your tireless stand against The Nothing. Methinks you have a Luck Dragon!

Hey MIke
Please allow me to suggest this lady here is the left leg of the triangulation which will bring about a centrist styled Democrat to win the 2020 Presidential convention.
She is a useful tool. She is going to drive the woke into the arms of an electable candidate... just like she is suppose too... I am going to miss her, she is so much easier on the eyes and ears than the Harpies in the Democrat Party... She cracks me up every time she opens her mouth, that is an endearing quality in a women and don't her mouth stay open? I bet she could bring a fella a beer too...

cool track...
Daug,
you pack more enjoyable sound into one song than anyone. Love the repeating descending bit, and the transition to the heavy jazzy is great. Thanks for two enjoyable listens...

Hello Jack
Nice to see friendly face and I appreciate your comment. I try to make things we can enjoy together, when I got the idea to use the old joke and realized I could turn the whole thing upside town I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. This one here cracks me up. She is gonna be an endless inspiration, until Daddy takes the T-Bird away...

Dunno... I felt a little disappointed...
This song has some interesting ideas, including apparently some interesting time-signatures and so forth, but I can’t help but think that it needs just a little more time in the oven.   Good, clean playing, but the vocals seem pretty lost.   I’d sure like to hear a re-mix of this one.

Maybe the focus of this piece so-far really was “just political,” and if so, (IMHO) the song deserves better.   And, as for the apparent-subject herself, at this point I am simply happy to see any “new voices” in the US Congress.   We have had (IMHO) too damn many decades in that venerable institution in which “old white men” (note: on both sides of the aisle) talked to themselves and their “yes men” in their luxurious chambers, while waging war on the rest of the world and neglecting their own nation.   So, if someone in there now has the guts to “Think Different™,” I am more than ready to give her some time.   Because it’s just got to be better than the past, and isn’t that what democracy is supposed to be about?

Lol, the lost quality you detect is not random but a carefully orchestrated technique to achieve exactly what you have discerned. In the A.O.C. line the tonic of the vocal line is double a fourth and a second above. This creates a whole tone dissonance and an interval of a major third. You can't discern this because you hear with your eyes.

I use whole tone dissonance with abandon. Whole tone dissonance makes what I do completely different from all other folks here and one of the reasons a Daug joint is instantly recognizable.

The melody on the A.O.C. line as sung here is the inverse of what is known in music literature as the "Millennial Whoop". The Whoop is root, third and fifth. You can hear this sound in most popular recordings. It outlines the tonality of the composition so tenderfeet can relax and not enjoy temporary displacement of the tonic or simple tonic ambiguity. Millennial are not capable of listening to these interesting compositional tools because it makes them unnerved. They need the Whoop so they know they are okay to imbibe. It is directed by BIG music and burned into the listening apparatus of most people.

I do not exploit political theater or write political lyrics. I deliver the sound track for your life by reporting the News. This is the news Mr. Robinson. A quick review of the lyrical content will reveal everything worth knowing about this portion of your life and what it means in reality. That is what the Daug House is Mr. Robinson.

The interesting ideas you speak of here are beyond your apprehension and perhaps the procession of your intellect. Let's test you. Allow me to suggest counting 3-3-3-4 after the opening cadence. This is 13/8 time. There is a huge ONE to keep you grounded. Don't take cues from the organ or bass lines, if you do the polyrhythms will only confuse your counting. I played the whole of the section first take on a Les Paul. You can hear multiple mistakes and a couple of clams, but because I am only gonna play it once I can tell you with certainty the part is wonderfully alive and sparkles.

If you come in my house and say lame stuff, or vacantly blather as you opine in the manner your master dictates I will call you out... By the same token if you ask I will be glad to explain whatever facet of what I am doing that interests you or celebrate the fact that you get experienced when parody infused with acid and thunderbolts becomes listenable in the hands of a capable alchemist.

So, do your homework. Come back to this recording and verify you can actually hear what has been presented. Identify the 18 Duane techniques featured in the recording. Get a feel for the modal interchange in the Daugy harmony. Or go troll someone else. I don't have anymore time for you Sir.

All
politics aside, I feel Mike was giving an honest opinion on the song with intentions to help, not at all to troll. Your response seemed irrationally over the top imo, and a bit of a disappointment.

Thank you – indeed I was
Thanks, Sammy – that is exactly what I meant to do.

And it may come as a complete surprise that I did hear the time signature (even counted it), did immediately recognize the use of dissonance, and the M-swoop and everything else.   I went to college also.   I made my comments only with the best of intention and they are worth exactly the pixels they are printed on.
