Two sessions in one day. Crazy.

Matt, Ben, and Dan

  • Friend Matt has some old tracks from 2005 that I’m helping clean up
  • We chatted and tweaked for two hours.
  • Added some bass and kick drum samples to one song
  • Going to be a 4 or 5 song project

DonnCherie

  • Vocal session for “For Keeps”
  • We got about half of it done – all the leads, most of the harmony vocals
  • Still need to records “choir” for bridge and harmonies for last verse

DonnCherie

  • Mid-day chat about her idea for a new bridge section in “FK”
  • Totally diggin’ it. I’ll work that idea into the rough track later this week.

HH Musical

  • Wrote some lyrical variations for the 4 choruses of “You Gotta Know Your Woman”
  • That song is good to go now. Incorporated the song chart into the script so it’s really official
  • Greg dug the song as well.
  • He asked when we’d be ready to do a table read. I think we’re damn close. But I really want to have all the songs written first.
  • I’m on a roll so I’m going to try and write the last 3 songs over the next few weeks.
  • Maybe I start asking around about doing a table read – might keep a flame under my butt for songwriting.

Adam Rabin

  • Tinkered with idea of doing a mash-up of “Maiden Voyage of the Acrolite” and “Cigar Box 3000”
    • I tweaked the tempo of the latter to match the former – just needed to be slowed by 2 bpm so it’s not noticeable.
    • Slightly different keys. But that never stopped me in the past.
    • Low priority project but something I’ll pick up if I’m only in the mood to dick around
  • And, I heard from Lyle who spent some time working on a guitar solo for “Here For You” which is a tune I started with Adam W and Chris C about two years ago. That song will see the light of day at some point.
