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"

Friday, January 16, 2004

OK, that was a lot of fun. It's way too late to be up, but it was a lot of fun. John and I worked on "Toy Soldiers" tonight. First, we cut some scratch vocals to guide us through the song. I actually cut it twice, and the second time, it was almost good enough to work from for a keeper track. But we won't do that for a long time yet, probably not until summer.

Then we redid the guitars, which were desparately needed. We added some layers of distorted guitars in the bridge and the final chorus, which really brought those parts up in intensity.

Then we got a little wild and imported some guns and bombs into the background of the whole beginning section. It's starting to sound kinda cool.

Well, overall the whole song is coming together, and parts of it are sounding really cool.

Stay tuned, next week we're going to try and bring in string players for "Millstones".

I have to say, it's been interesting to work on "Soldiers" with John, seeing as he's the one it was written for. That'll make a lot more sense when you hear the song and the story. For a long time, he and I were best friends, then we had a falling out, and have since repatched things up. But this one was written when it wasn't fully patched.

Anyway, we'll keep on...
