It's "A Joyful Noise"

I had some real fun yesterday.

It started out with a guy named Jesse, whom I met online a while back. He runs a site at MSN called "LDS_Teen_Spot". I've been checking it out, you know, gettin' in tune with my audience...

Anyway, he asks me a few days ago if I'd consider doing a live chat session where kids could come on and chat and ask questions. It sounded like lots of fun, plus a chance to get my music right in front of my audience. So, I said I would.

Well, that was a smart move on my part. One of the few I've had lately, it seems.. Anyway, there were about 5-10 people in the chat at any given moment, and they were all energetic and friendly. They asked questions about music, downloaded my songs, and I thought we all had a great time.

So, I'm hoping to do that on a regular basis. I'm also going to try and set up some of my LDSM friends to do it as well.

Then, last night, John and Sherri came over and we cut the vocals to "Toy Soldiers". I haven't had a chance to listen to all the raw tracks yet, so that'll happen, but I was really confident with it the whole time. We'll just have to see if any of it's keeper.

So, that means that we just have to cut the trumpet and we're done (assuming the lead vocals all pass muster). The jury's still out on whether or not to cut acoustic guitar, but I don't think I will.

While I was singing, though, I got this wonderful sense that this is really a good tune. I'm really grateful that it climbed out of me, because it really helped me deal with some pretty ugly stuff. I mean, it tells the story of almost losing a friend. That's tough!
