1. Punch Bowl grew out of the bass line that now anchors every verse (Greg was playing out his frustration after a long day in Xplorador, Punch Brothers' trusty 15 passenger rental van).
2. The lyrics from Part One of The Blind Leaving the Blind's first movement come not from the perspective of the story's main character, but rather from its main character's departing love interest.
3. Punch Brothers all refer to the last four minutes and twenty five seconds (Part Two) of the first movement as "Red Handed".
4. The use of the figure (and the figure itself) introduced by the fiddle at 7:40 in the second movement is a timid tip of the hat to the second time through the main theme of the first movement of Brahms' Fourth Symphony.
5. During rehearsals, the 2/5 of Punch Brothers who play fret-less instruments repeatedly stated that they would prefer for the C sections of the third movement to be notated in Db, but they were unable to get that through the thick skull of the 1/5 responsible
6. The main theme from Part Two of the third movement was conceived in the parking lot of the Green Hills YMCA in Nashville, TN, after a particularly lonesome treadmill session.
7. It is its composer's opinion that the fourth movement is the most successful movement of the piece structurally, if not necessarily his best writing overall.
8. Punch Brothers made Sometimes out of four themes by three different band members. The slower middle section was meant to sound like a John Hartford tune being cranked out of a warped music box.
9. At first, the chorale-ish section at the end of Nothing, Then (now instrumental tremelo and pizzicato) was sung, before the band realized that they didn't really know how to sing chorale-ish section.
10. It'll Happen is from the level-headed point of view of the new love interest introduced in Nothing, Then.
