East of Western: Recording Post 2

more drum tracks last night. actually, i'm pretty sure we finished the drum tracks. it was late and kevin and i were tired even though we were on fire like a torpedo in the water. :-) you'll never know.

the last song we worked on was one that i had never heard. in fact there wasn't even a vocal part...just an acoustic guitar. we listened and talked and listened. then kevin sang a quick scratch vocal part and we started building all these cool drum parts. when it was all done, we had 3 separate drum tracks that all overlaid on the track. i can't wait to hear it!

we talked about how fun it is work on new songs in the studio in comparison to songs that you've written and played live forever. the new songs get new life with every part that you add. in the end it feels like you're listening to this song for the very first time...except you played on it. it's pretty cool.

how neat would it be if i could devote 100% of my time and energy to creating music. what would that be like? not the typical hobbyist, working all day at the "day job", drive for hours, record till the wee hours of the night....just to drive more and then crash so i can get up and go to work again. how cool would it be if my "work" was making music. like my good friend JD always says...hope big....dream bigger!

i'll be sure and let you know when the record is done so you can get your own copy!
