Suddenly I was playing chords I could not name ….

This song started with a chord pattern that I would play over and over and never know any of the chords. They were all three note chords I’d found way up on the guitar neck and they just felt really good to play.  My fingers loved the new patterns and the progression seemed to stretch in a weird way that I’d never really heard before.  I remembered all of this when a friend of mine was trying to learn the song and said it was really hard.  I would have to agree , simply because it was just thrown together on whims and had no agenda at all.  Except maybe a little “Police” sound like there is some kind of Sting or Roxanne or something .  Like all songs it is about the collapse of society and called , “Rome.”
