First there’s this… A 12-bar blues in the verse and a chunk of a 12-bar blues in the chorus. This is the only electric song that I didn’t double track the rhythm guitars, but I got to spread out the stereo thanks to running through two amps which is about as awesome as it gets.
Now the screwball part of the post. This is the first song from the acoustic half of the project. It’s the only one of the seven that I didn’t put any percussion on (what the hell is a cajon, anyway?) so it’s just two tracks of guitar, two (actually three) tracks of vocals, and one track of sax….
Now here’s the same song with the sax replaced by an electric guitar and bass and drums added. I call the first mix the Coffee Shoppe Mix, and the second mix the Bar Band Mix although I don’t think I wrote that onto the file name….
….and with that, I have two songs complete. I just have to decide which version of the acoustic song goes on the final album.
