A song I wrote quite a while ago but which I never recorded. It all started with hearing Ari's Eyes by bassplayer Victor Wooten. I felt very inspired by his musical ideas in that song. I wanted to take them from a bass guitar to a classical guitar. Of course, it turned out differently. But the so-called simplicity and repetition of the same theme pushed me to try to come up with the same musical ideas. At least, I tried. I wanted it to be as obvious as possible that the biggest inspiration for the song is Ari's Eyes, so I turned the bass up in the audio editing program Audacity. It results in a much more balanced recording than the rough recordings that my mobile phone makes. For me, my phone is the best material available to me at this moment to do my recordings.

The song Endless Road by guitarist Tommy Emmanuel encouraged me to try to put a story-telling aspect in She doesn't know. Endless Road is joyful and melancholic at the same time. I tried doing the same.

I made a mistake at the beginning of the bridge. I decided to not record the song again, because I'm pretty happy with the result as a whole. I had to add a cross fade-out to the rest between the first chorus and the second verse. In between the silences, the recording tends to produce a very unpleasant rustling noise. As said earlier, I recorded the song with my mobile phone. The fade that solves that problem explains the 'gap'.

And concerning the title 'She doesn't know': I guess some things don't need an explanation to be understood.

I hope you like it!
