The week in Hawaii is done and it’s back to work. Starting of with Wrecking Ball which is wrecking me. I’m using midi drums, something I’ve always hated, but I start off by doing a live performance with an electronic kit so I can get some natural feel and then go in and start doing some tweaks. As you can see by the pic it looks more like algebra than rock ‘n roll, but I’ve been in love with Native Instruments Abbey Road drums, so it sounds pretty damn close to the real thing. So here’s a question for you. I’ve mentioned posting work in progress music clips. Is it interesting to hear a track that’s so far just piano and drums. It might not be that riveting, but then you’d see what’s happened since the last clip. Drop me some comments and let me know.
Hmm, what else. Well, after the studio, I took my sweet time getting Direct TV re-installed, but when they offered a free HD DVR, I couldn’t pass it up. It arrived today and now I’m a little nervous about it. You see, I grew up in my grandmother’s house which was totally isolated and I get kinda squirmy in a room all alone. TV in the background is a nice way to bring something active in the room, but then something like what’s currently playing, The Beach Boy’s: Endless Harmony documentary starts tugging at my ADD. Must focus!
That’s it for now. Hope you are all well.
