Because you’ve all been so nice about the sketchy recording I posted on here a week or so ago, I thought I would treat you to a bigger better recording!
I have a confession to make. I do not appear on the recording! Nope, Jakco bought an iPad, and has been going into to creative overdrive with GarageBand (I’ve got GarageBand on the Mac, but never really figured how to use it). He plays both guitars, bass and tapped out his drum beat on the app. He’s a talented young man, and I would be very jealous of him if I weren’t riding on his coattails.
It’s a beautiful song, and I can’t wait to get it completed and play it to people!
There’s a few changes I would to see made to this before can be satisfied that it’s done. A few of the lead parts need to be played an octave deeper. We’ve also come out with better strumming patterns for my rhythm parts too.
Let me know what your thoughts are!
I’ve been meaning to brighten the blog up a big and make it a bit more exciting than the current green and text in place at the moment. This weekend Jacko and Me are going to GarageBand up the song I wrote about in the last post, so if the recording is good enough I’ll whack it on hear so you guys can get a sneak preview of whats going down!
You may also notice the picture over on the homepage. This is courtesy of Mikey, of www.Englishgentleman.net. He has loads of cool photos of awesome bands on his site! I particularly like the snaps of Paramore (guess why). You can also add him as a contact on Flickr or check out his stuff there http://www.flickr.com/photos/anenglishgentleman/.
I’m going to be tinkering around with the theme and looks of the page over the next week or so. I really want to use Mikey’s photo to greater effect (currently it’s cropped, and doesn’t really do it justice). If anyone has any tips or suggestions, they would be most welcome! I know what I want, just don’t know how to execute them!
