god damn, i love that song. that and Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters always puts me in that “Almost Famous” scene feeling. all is right with the world.

As a songwriter, I so do love his boredom with his own genius song.

PS he’s not working on anything, much less a harmony.

Agreed, a misleading headline. It’s more of a demo for a film crew, with Reg explaining part of the creative process, rather than “working out” anything at all. Especially since the final recording has no “harmonies” (vocally) whatsoever.
