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"

Saturday, January 17, 2004

I went back and revisited "Sunshine" this morning. We'd only done scratch tracks on about half the song, just enough so that we could remember the basic groove.

And the groove is cool. There's a fast and choppy acoustic guitar strum, a funky moving bass line and the drums are doing this kinda nouveau-retro thing with lots of ghost hits.

But anyway, with a bit of addition for a bridge, and a lot of copying and pasting, I've got an underlying verse/chorus structure for the song all the way through, now. It's going to be a fun tune.

I probably ought to clarify from the previous post about this tune. The guy that wrote this song (John G) is different from the guy that's been helping me produce (John N). I've known them both for a long, long time, John N the longest.

John G used to live in my ward, and was, in fact, my home teacher for quite a while. He was also one of the most diligent home teachers I've ever had. There were a few times when he'd just show up and help me clean or whatever I was working on at the moment. I remember my back gave out a few days after helping him move, dropping me like a rock for almost two weeks.

Ah the memories... :-)
