Week 1


Got the vocal for "Please Stop" done today.  Took me a minute, too.  I haven't let myself bust out the blues voice in a while.  It's kinda funny, because that's my normal singing voice and I never use it.  Never any real use for it half the time.  Maybe in the future I'll go back to writing more blues based tracks.  It's weird to hear.  I really slur my words when I sing.  Jesus.  I hope people can understand the lyrics.  Well, I can just post them if it's an issue.  Then again, that would imply people are listening to my songs.  Ha.  Gotta make yourself laugh.  Anyway, I did a double in the chorus at an octave below.  It adds a bit of weight in the mix that feels pretty right.  Also changed the pre-chorus riff to be in half time.  Better feel to it with the snare on 3.  Pulled the 808 down in the mix, as well.  Considering how different this track is from the others, I hope it goes over well.  It's got a jump blues feel in the chorus and is based around a chugging riff on the C string.  It feels good to have a place to document my process.  Hopefully this will keep me making progress on my projects, seeing as I have to update this blog.  Well, I guess that's all I have to report for today.  Cheers- Husky


Managed to make a dent in the lyrics for "Asylum Demon" today.  I love writing these 8+ minute songs, but it's such a bitch to put lyrics to them.  I think I might leave the bridge instrumental.  Not sure yet.  It's a lot of song to cover.  Maybe a nice melodic lead section?  I really don't know.  That's what makes the longer tracks fun, their's just so much to do.  We'll see.  Hopefully tomorrow I can finish it.  It's a ton of time to play with.  I'm out- Husky


Didn't do enough over the last few days to warrant an entry.  Did get the lyrics to "Asylum Demon" written.  I've got all the lyrics for the album written.  Now I just have to finish the vocals and mix the whole thing.  Still not done.  At any rate, it's been a mess over here.  Christmas really throws off my workflow.  That's fine, though.  Well, in 3 days I managed to get one set of lyrics written.  It's better than nothing.  Later- Husky
