I have to write some more about last night's vocals, because there's so much going on in my mind about it. And I have a little more time at the moment.

I went into it very nervous. In all the years and in all the recordings I've done, this one was going to be the best. Not because my singing was necessarily better, but because I was going to take the time to make it right. I even got a blessing from John N and another guy here at work before we started.

As a result, I was very nervous. We went through about 4 passes through the song before we even started keeping the takes. And then, we just kept cutting it, again and again and again. The Spirit was very strong there with us. We ended up keeping 9 takes of the whole song, and then we listened back to every line and picked the best one (that's a process I think I'm going to have to do again, now that my ears are more fresh). We ended up cutting even more takes of the bridge.

Then, John and Sherri were there, so I had them cut the backing vocals. I had a goal that it would all be done and then I could start the process of mixing. But I don't think that worked out.

By the end of the night my ears were fried and I was hammered. So, I don't know how it turned out.

But it was very good for me to face that and come through it. Very learning experience.
