|You're Already Gone|
by C. Carson Parks
Although I don't wish anyone bad luck, it seems to me that there is a moment in a failing relationship when something in the back of your mind snaps. You may keep trying to make it work, but there comes a doubt that there's a future. It's that first inkling that it may be headed for a downfall. I wanted that message, but I also wanted a soft Latin feel, a slow Merengue (called "Salon Merengue" in the Caribbean). I felt my guitar abilities were adequate to put down the basics, but I needed some "fill", so I got my neighbor (Charlie Gore) a steel player in Nashville to do the demo session with me. I requested Dobro only, as that sound has always fascinated me. He said "that's not the type of music that Dobro is meant for!" I said: "Charley, you're not 'Dobro', you're the 'string section'!", and I think it came out very nice. Just what I wanted!
