Stay Woke with “Redbone” (Childish Gambino Cover)

In the words of Childish Gambino (the musical moniker of singer-actor-comedian/creative genius Donald Glover):

“If you want it
You can have it
If you need it (you better believe in something)”

This song is infectiously funky, groovy and soulful. It’s tinged with 70s soul as the slapping bass pays homage to that 1976 classic”I’d Rather Be With You” by Bootsy Collins. Gambino’s high-pitched vocals against that mellow, smoky track is so delicious — no wonder the world is obsessing!

Call me a little late to the game, but I’ve had this track on repeat all week and could not stop playing. As the past month has been quite busy with me traveling and road tripping (a birthday turned into a birth month — new post to come soon), it felt good to plug my guitar in and jam out to the simple riffs and licks in the song through GarageBand.

I’m still in the process of learning how to create cleaner recordings and fuller sounds, so bare with me (any thoughts or comments would be appreciated as well). But boy does it feel good to record again!

Hope you enjoy. And stay woke.
