Neb Crabula

  • Greg sent me an 8-line lyric “Charity” a couple days ago.
  • While walking the dog this afternoon I figured out what we should do with it.
  • I sent a simple beatbox rhythm to Greg and he recorded his vocals along with it right into his cell phone camera and sent it to me.
  • I added the beats, guitar, and organ.
  • And it’s done. Releasing it tomorrow.

  • Working on remix/remaster of our 2nd album “Looking Beyond My Fence.”
  • I only have the multi-tracks for a few songs so options are limited.
  • Will probably finish today or tomorrow at the latest.

  • Made quick and dirty demos of a few songs. A few left to do before moving on to writing the final batch of songs.
  • After quick chat with Greg, I sent a copy of the play to a friend here in town. May send it to another friend in the next few days.
    • This is a big step – sharing it with somebody other than ourselves and our wives.

  • Dropped off Taylor at music shop for repair.

HH Musical

  • Focused songwriting continues. I organized all of my quick cell phone audio recording ideas.
  • Started refining the suite in Act I, Scene 5. That song will take a few days.

  • Focused work on the songs now. About 2/3 of the songs are written – roughly.
  • I printed out the lyrics for those and am rehearsing and refining them now.
  • This will probably keep me busy for the next week or two.
  • I’d like to have all the songs written but I know I’ll do better working on them in a two separate chunks. Don’t want to get overwhelmed.
