Okay, here is a song I recorded today. I’ve been going at it for about 12 hours now so I’m pretty pooped.
The song is called, for the moment, Terminal. The music is actually the first song I ever wrote on guitar, back when I had just moved to Somerville with the boys (I think Wing came into my room and asked me if I was writing a song, and I rudely replied “no!”, totally embarrassed. That was the first and last time I ever lied to Wing…). I finally wrote some lyrics for it and fleshed it out this spring.
- I play the normal instruments on it: acoustic, electric, bass, a bit of keyboard, and of course the vocals. I still haven’t recorded my mandolin! This isn’t a mandolin song, though. The next one I have planned should be…
- I had a lot of fun playing some crazy bass parts. They’re mostly during the chorus, so they’re pretty hard to hear, unless you’re wearing headphones. That’s probably good — I think the bass line is almost too busy.
- No harmonies! Normally I love ’em (see, for instance, this song), but this time… didn’t happen. But ooh I love harmonies…
This must be my most frequently-updated LJ week of all time. Back to work for me… maybe no new entries for a while.
