Here we go, here we go!
This song is saaaddd. “We all will pass.” As in die! :o
It’s true though. And, you know, that’s just the way it is!
Guitar: backpacker nylon string. Mic’d up with a small diaphragm condenser. A little ‘verb.
Shaker: same mic that was up for the guitar. Some echo.
Vocals: 2nd take. Lyrics ad-libbed.
