Just a quick update to say – all my rough demos for my upcoming album are done! Ten songs, ten rough demos. Whew!
This last Saturday, I had a good chunk of time. So I whipped out my lyrics, picked up my guitar, and whittled away at the rest of my songs. Which meant that I did this stuff in the space of about 4 hours:
- Finalized the melody to four songs.
- Finalized the chords and chord structures of each song.
- Did some minor lyric edits to make the melodies, rhythms, and words all gel together.
And did a fast guitar/vocal recording of each song, too!
What’s next? Well – honestly, I have a lot of normal work stuff to do first. As in a good 10 or so presentations to create and give, a small publication to write, and a forward of a book to write. Lots of projects, not lots of time.
Once that stuff’s all done, I’ll start recording! Or – fingers crossed – maybe I’ll be able to start recording before all that stuff gets done. It depends, ya know?
Either way … milestone achieved!
