It's "A Joyful Noise"

Monday, February 07, 2005

I've been up quite a while, now, working on "I Will Sing This Prayer". I think that I'll focus on that one and "How Beautiful" for my first quarter songs. I started by simply cleaning up the piano tracks.

Then I added some melodic guitar lines at the end. I set them up with heavy distortion. But with the reverb and the distance in the mix, rather than sounding heavy, it sounds "delicately large". It gives it a majestic sort of feel.

I also put some lead in the outro. Lots of distortion as well, but that makes it smooth, like the other parts. Playing solos in a major key also adds to the majesty, I think.

I also added some strings into the ending. It just makes the whole tune so huge. But not like a "big and powerful" kind of huge, more like a "full and spacious" sorta huge.

Also, a while ago, my wife said she was wondering about the new songs I was working on. I promised her a CD with all the ones I've been working on. But she doesn't know the titles, so I slated this one with the name before it.

The vocals are all up in my nose, though. Of course, those are only scratch vocals. Still, I want them to be good. This one I'm going to have to practice because the vocals will have to be dead on.
