January 1st is a special time for me. I DO make resolutions. You can call them mile-posts, wake-up calls, whipping posts, whatever. This January I re-focused and determined that if I were ever to get recording done, I need to DO IT.
I need to DO IT COMFORTABLY! So I bought a new recording desk, big ol' monitor and a comfy chair so I can dig it without suffering! Duh!
Here's my rig now.
So...I got two songs recorded! Yay me!
I am all over the board when it comes to music genres. I just can't stick to just one. That's may be my downfall, but it's what comes out of me. Take for instance this song; "Good 2 Me" which began as a song playing in my dreams. Probably 2, 3, 4 a.m. or so and this song is playing in my head. I get up and grab my phone, walk down the hallway, so as to not wake up Suzie, and half-whisper/sing this song into it. "You are good to me, wo-oh. La-la-la-la-la-la-la-laaah You are good to me wo-oh..."
A few days later I put together some lyrics into one of my song books and play with it, over and over and over. I can't get it finished. I'm not satisfied with the chord structure, so it sits there. Now, last week I pull it out and start laying down tracks, getting the chords right, and writing the rest of the lyrics. Here it is. Genius? Hokey? Rockin'? All I can say is I like what I did. Suzie wants a re-write to change the genre to something less "Archies." Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
