Just to keep this simple: Gillian Welch is awesome. There is no point in arguing with me about this, because I will simply refuse to listen. So is David Rawlings. They’re individually and collectively brilliant. They just write some good damn songs!
So, in a mental mood after Day 103, I decided to try a simplified and shortened version of “Dark Turn of Mind,” a stunner off of GW’s most recent album, The Harrow and the Harvest. I had to change the key to fit my vocal limitations and leave out all of the terrific guitar work in the break and the harmonies (no time to work it all out, really), but it still turned out to be more or less listenable.
