Bass Guitar Done.

 

Spent Wednesday night & Thursday recording bass tracks.  It is pretty cool adding bass to a project as it really brings the songs to life.  Bass is one of those things that you really do not notice a whole lot until you take it away (or add it and realize how awesome it makes a song).  I also re-did the ending to the final track.  Played four of these songs a few weeks ago and while we were practicing for it, the drummer and guitar player accidently came in at the wrong spot – and it was magic.  It was what that song needed and was pretty rock and roll.  So I could not stand it and went back to the recordings and am going to change that part.

Have to redo the guitar parts for the end of that song and a few other small things here and there, but I am very, very close to being done with all the instruments.

Still need to write lyrics for some songs and then start recording the vocal parts.  Singing with the tracks is my absolute favorite part of the whole process.  The lyrics and vocals are really where my heart is expressed (even though I put a lot of my soul into the instruments as well).  So I am very excited for the last ingredient, but also know it is going to be probably as much work to do the vocals as all of the other parts combined – because it is the forefront of everything and it needs to be right.

Interested in hearing some samples of the songs:
