Singing Silence – New Song Demo

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!

A Bit Of Work In Progress

So I’ve been promising you all a bit of music, and I’ve been promising you this for a very long time.

Well today I’m finally delivering!

I strummed out a chord progression on Sunday, and played it to Jacko on Wednesday, and almost immediately we turned it into this.

Now this is a real rough and ready recording. There’s clearly a lot of mistakes, but we did record this mere minutes after we wrote it and through my laptop’s built in mic. Despite all that, we both really like it!

I don’t know if we’ll be making many changes to the song and its structure. I quite like the idea of having a nice and simple song, lasting for not much more than two minutes.

But we’re not done yet! The next steps will be to get it tight and pen some lyrics.

Let me know what you think, any suggestions will be most welcome! If you’re nice I’ll pin up some other recordings for you!
