I would not classify this song as New Age; more so, maybe a rock instrumental. The birth of this song origionated while I was serving in the US Army, stationed at Ft. Lewis, Wa. The guitar sound you here at the beginning and end of this song was revised over the years; used to be a piano melody. The lead guitar sounds were influenced by a former co-worker while serving in the Army. He used to come over and we would have jam-sessions. He was a very talented guitarist that gave me the ideas to how this song would sound, once I had the capability to record this.
The title, "Far Away" was named simply because at the time I started putting this song together, I was far away from home.
