The jaws that sing, the claws that strum

Here's another song from the Alice in Wonderland project I'm working on -- "Jabberwocky".

I was a little stressed about coming up with music for "Jabberwocky", it being so famous and all. So, fortunately, I came up with the chord progression when I was working on something else entirely. (That was the week I spent doing nothing but playing in alternate tunings. This song was another product of that week.) The final product ended up sounding way, way different than any of the approaches I'd been imagining, which was a fine thing as far as I was concerned.

This song, as with the previous "Alice" song, features the slippery bass of Mr. Jim Wagner.
