Did I mention that for some idiotic reason I started a couple of new songs today? Well I’ve finished one of them already.
When I woke up there was a dumb strummy little riff in my head. It was a telecommute day so I was able to record it and turn it into a whole (kinda lame) song. I recorded all of the rhythm guitars to a basic guide drum track. At lunch time I wrote the lyrics and the melody and recorded the vocals and the lead guitar. After work I replaced the midi drums with a GarageBand drummer and I added the midi bass. In the hour or so before bed I mixed it and uploaded it everywhere.
Its not a very good song, but it’s kinda cool to go from nothing to finished over the course of a single day. I did the same with another new song but didn’t get a chance to add the drums and bass or do a mix. Everything that requires a microphone is done. There is a third new song that is just bass, drums, and a piano melody with some lyrics. I’m hoping I can get all of the recording for that one done before work in the morning. There is also one other song that still needs a lead guitar. Fingers crossed I get both songs finished before I have to leave for work.
