I composed this (the chord progression and melody) on 8/3/00 while I was sitting at one of the picnic tables in the Mt. Townsend campsite of the Camp Parsons Boy Scout camp on Hood Canal in Western Washington where I was camping with my sons and their Boy Scout troop. I wrote the rhythm accompaniment and bass line the evening of 8/7/00 after I returned home.
The chord progression is an experiment in using minor harmonies. It uses the sounds of major 6th, half-diminished 7th, 7b9, 7sus4, and minor Major 7th chords in unhackneyed patterns.
The melody line alternates phrases that use convoluted rhythms with answering phrases in a very fast but simpler rhythm. This brought to mind the idea of straightening a crooked path.
