RPMarch is Finished!

March 2020 did what March 2014 failed to do.  It followed February’s RPM Challenge rules album-in-a-month with another RPM Challenge rules album-in-a-month.  In 2014 the March music wasn’t finished until May.  In 2020 it was finished with two days to spare, babie!  Got it in early!

Today I recorded three vocals, six lead guitars, and I mixed six songs.  I am so tired I can’t function.  Enjoy!

Live Music

I just went to my first ever Richard Thompson concert.  It was a Facebook Live stream and it was great.  The traffic getting to the show was clear and my seats were fantastic.

He did play “Keep Your Distance” in case you are a fan and were wondering.

March is Almost Over

I know that no one else on Earth gives even the slightest fuck about yet another stupid song writing project.  We all have much bigger fish to fry.  I don’t care.  You’re getting another March Music post and that’s all there is to it.

I’ve got three days left.  Tonight while watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, I wrote the lyrics and the melody to the last three songs.  I now have three vocal parts to record, and six lead guitars to record.  I am hopeful that I can get them all done tomorrow, though that will require another trip to an empty parking lot for the three vocals.  No problem.

That will leave me with Sunday night, and Monday and Tuesday before and after work to mix the six remaining songs.  Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy.

Once that’s done all I will need to worry about is the global pandemic and the news stories detailing a growing sense of panic in some parts of the world… some of which are not too terribly far from me.

Until April 1st that is, when I start another month long writing challenge.

March Music

I finished two songs.  One last night and another just a few minutes ago.  I’d post them both here but hearthis.at is being a pain in the ass and not uploading the second song.  I couldn’t get the first one to upload last night either, but it worked this morning.

Both songs are crap, but they exist so there’s that.  If the second song ever uploads I’ll share it.  Until then, you’ll just have to settle for one stink burger.
