I did a second drum session with Seb on Saturday. We now have 8 songs recorded. Three of them are mixed. There are 2 songs that I am recording and I’d like to compose a few ones more. I still have to choose titles, the song are called for instance by the date they were composed. Most of them contain a bunch of acoustic instruments, with very few keyboards. There’s some bass and drums on all songs so far. I’m into slap back echo on vocals, 50’s-60’s vibe!
Doing the trick composing/writing/arranging/recording one song in one day maximum. I have 4 days so I keep counting new songs.
Today I did some recordings.
A “To do” list
Finishing lyrics for a song (working title “june23”, the day it was composed), then tracking vocals for it.
Some harmonica for the same song. Learning the vocal part for another song (“june 18”). Phrasing goes fast, so training before tracking could help to get a definitive track. As always, first take is looked for.
Some vocals for “june18”, some harmonica for “june23”, then vocals for “february23” and to finish, a bit of ukulele for “june18” chorus.
Written while listening to a Leonard Cohen’s record. He’s such a great songwriter and I like his low voice.
