The Bones

Free audio download of this performance on SoundCloud.

The Bones is a song by pop/country star, Maren Morris. Six months after its release in 2019, the song was reimagined with Hozier singing the second verse. I love this song, and I've been teaching the basic version to my guitar students recently. Hozier really lights it up in the second verse. Had he not been involved with this piece -- I doubt The Bones would've been on my radar for this blog.

(I was recording during a thunderstorm, and my house got hit by lightning. At 1:20 of the video -- you can see the lightning and hear my amp crackle.)
