Hello, again, hello again.

On the way home from work last night, I got this infectious little hook in my head. A funky little guitar riff over a 120 beat.

So, after some dinner, John N and I took a moment and tracked it. It really sounded fun.

Now, all I need is a topic and some lyrics.

Then, we cracked open "Torocagua" and after listening a few times, laid down a new bass line. It REALLY made it feel more solid, which is funny because I played it live, rather than sequenced it. The real advantage to sequencing is, of course, that you can quantize and tighten up the timing. But the tone and the feel was just so much more solid when I played it live.

I think I'm going to do more live bass parts.

Then after that, John G and Sherri came over and we cut some scratch vocals for "Play the Cards". I learned somethign very valuable. That is, that it takes me 4-5 takes through a song to really get relaxed into it and sounding really good.

Now I feel sorry for all those that see me do one song at an open mic... :-)
