    John Hollingum asked me if I could play lead guitar over his (excellent) tune. John sent the raw files to me (hear the original demo version here (Snakes and Ladders - John Hollingum's Demo Version by Michael Jeronimo) and I got to work. First, I had my friend, Phil Santilli, play drums. Next, I replaced the bass guitar to better match the feel of the new drum track. Then I added lap steel guitar for a melodic hook. John had mentioned perhaps adding an organ, so I used a Leslie effect on a guitar to get a sound vaguely like an organ. There’s a second guitar to fill things out a bit, and finally, the lead at the end. I mixed the track and John and I had a couple rounds of comments and tweaks and this is the result.
    Thanks to John for asking me to play on his tune and giving me the leeway to experiment a bit. It was a lot of fun. It might take me weeks to get this song out of my head (great singing John)!
