It's "A Joyful Noise"

Saturday, February 05, 2005

On the LDS music list, we've decided that for the season of '05 we're going to put out a Christmas compilation. I'm pretty excited about that.

A few years ago, on Christmas Eve Eve (that would be in the wee hours morning of Dec 24th - not before Christmas Morning), I was awake, and a song started coming to me. So, I got up and wrote it, like a good little songwriter. Then, the next night, The Real Christmas Eve, my sister came over to celebrate with our family, as is our tradition. I premiered the song for them there.

That was two years ago. Now this morning, I actually put the thing down. I did it first with just the acoustic guitar all the way through, then added the vocals (scratch, of course - c'mon it's 7:00 in the morning!). Then, I realized that it was too low for me.

So I played with it a little and changed the key. First by trying to play different chords, but I ended up in the key of B flat, which a guitarist can't do without a capo.

Then I recut the guitar, and the scratch vocal, and now I'm much more happy.
