Just got back from Germany yesterday. I go to Moder Music School to give workshops for Professional guitar class, I visit there two times a year. Was very good to spend one weekend teaching students again. I hope they got lot out of it. A lot of material and ideas were squeeezed into two days. I think I learned a lot as well!
Today I try to finish recording this song I was just writing you abou. The one I re-composed and arranged (“Hope Hope”). Rhythm guitars are there, lead guitars need to be finished. I try to do it today. Because I booked Lasse to do some Bass overdubs on this Thursday. Before that I also need to make of list of all the things we need to do with Lasse. There’s one complite song without the bass. Also little parts in many songs where I composed new guitar lines, and now the bass part need to be changed as well.
Also a keyboard overdubbing session needs to be be booked soon. It would be better to finish all current songs complitely before moving to compose new material.
On saturnday evening after the long and hard workshop day I went to hang out in the local bar. Together with the students. Also my friend Alan Jay Reed was there. He came up with an interesting idea to be use on a composition.
The idea may sound finny but I really love it and am inspired of it. Big contrasts and changes!
First very slow band (perhaps a slowed down recording of the band?) backing a fast, fast guitar playing. Then everything goes oopsite. Vice versa. Fast( speeded up?) band and slow guitar. etc.
Thanks Alan! Let’s see if this turns into a composition to the next album… :)
Okay, now to work. Enjoy the day!
