Red Dragon is a new track for my next album. I spent some time a few weeks ago learning Flamenco guitar picking techniques. The Flamenco pick attack was perfect for this song. Red Dragon has some of my cleanest guitar work yet. I love the runs and bouncy drums. Everything kinda sits on the beat, but stays loose.
I love the composition and the use of guitar tones to create something “non-guitar” sounding. The inspiration for this track is another bucket list item; The Chinese Red Dragon Festival. The last 3rd of the song has a nice outro. I push everything ‘over’ a key and let the harmony rub.
