WARNING: Listening to this music doesn't require parental approval. It's a bit of clean rebellion. It keeps your outlook up and your hope alive. It's got strong drums and screaming guitars. It pumps you up and drives your life. It's a hunger for exploration. It chooses the right and returns with honor. It's music you don't have to confess to your bishop.

It's not your parents' "Saturday’s Warrior".

It's "A Joyful Noise"

Just wait and see. "How Beautiful" is going to be a testiment to the power of cooperation and synergy. A long time ago, John Newman, a good friend of mine, volunteered to do the choral arrangements for this song. I would have done it, and I think I would have done a fair job.

Well, today he emailed me the score and some MIDI files. I imported those into the song and lined them up. I was blown away. They truly take this song to a new level.

I am sooo lucky to have friends like him!

Last night I put some more touches on "Here in Me". I recorded the acoustic guitar on two tracks. One of them is clean and just strumming. You'll barely be able to hear it in the mix. It's there more for rhythmic sparkle, not so much for notes or harmonic value. Just a little arranging trick.

The other track, I fed through the virtual amp and distorted. It's the broken chords that help fatten up the chorus.

Then, the fun part. The part where I do a rough mix, and then listen to it over and over, louder and louder...
