Flow the Rattlesnake

By Andy Mullen ‚Äč

Songs With Words, Tunes for Teaching

This quarantune (a song written during the Covid-19 quarantine) is in the Freygish mode (also known as Phrygian dominant.) I actually originally wrote it in Locrian, but it didn't quite set right. 

This song has built in opportunities for echoing, as well as improvisation. 

Flo the Rattlesnake-melody

Additional verse:

Deep in the desert, where most of us won't go.

I see you've met Florence, who just goes by "Flow."

She doesn't like echoes, she sees it as a diss. 

Be careful, be cautious, be different with your hiss.
