I wrote this pastoral instrumental for the Spanish guitar with background accompaniment. It is a tribute for the unconditional love of all moms. I heard a key melody in a dream, which is true of many of my pieces. I got up early the following morning and quickly recorded a track before the melody faded from my memory. I used headphones as not to wake my family. As always, the guitars I play are always real.
The opening guitar riff came about while jamming on an acoustic. The sinister introduction made me visualize a superhero lurking in the shadows. Maybe he or she was a vigilante, fighting crime in the universe. I imagined using the song for two scheduled Why Mom Deserves a Diamond videos produced by Gallery of Diamonds. The title, BatMom, came naturally.
