Building A Song – Part Two

Feb
02

I told you I’d be back with a video! So a while back we started a series called “Building A Song“, basically what we wanted to do was track the process of writing and recording a song for ourselves and for anyone else that may be interested. I had written a riff, brought to the guys, then one practice Scott (the sexy beast singing and playing guitar in this video) suggested we revisit it, we did and then the process of fleshing it out began. For me it’s been a real learning process, Dan (the guy tucked away in the corner that plays the solo) and I had written a couple of songs back in our teenage years, but they were very basic and that was a long time ago. So in the first video we were in the starting to flesh it out stage, in this video we are starting to put together all the parts.

A couple of notes, there’s a whole lot of learning going on here, not just in terms of some of the guys learning the music but also in terms of the technology involved. We are learning how to do a multi-camera video shoot, we’re learning how to mix and record live audio (Dear JamHub you rule! We’ll talk about you in a separate video!), how to sync them both together and then a million and one different pieces that make up those processes, so, it’s sooooooo far off from perfect it’s not funny (ok it’s a little funny ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), but that’s the point, we’re learning, and having a great time doing it. So let’s get to the video:

So where do we go from here? This is what I was referring too in my last post, the thing that has me really excited. Jeff (the sexy keyboard player in this video) has been kind enough to offer up his cottage for what we normally call boys weekend which involves video games, beer, videos game, beer, beer, ummm video games, well you get the picture. This time however we are basically putting a recording studio up there and recording this song (potentially one more and doing some good old fashioned jamming to see what else we can come up with). ย The setup for that is going to be absolutely insane so I’m literally counting the (38) days till then. In terms of this site we plan on doing some really fun things with this, fun for us anyway, but we’ll try and keep it entertaining for whoever stumbles upon these posts and videos as well. We have some ideas in terms of gear talk videos, more in this series as well, and of course the whole recording process so for those of you with us, thanks for taking the time to check it out and feel free to throw out any input/suggestions you may have!! Until the next time!

The Language of Song Writing

Apr
26

Wow, I’ve totally been slacking on the updating front. It hasn’t been a case of us doing nothing, we actually have been practicing on a fairly regular basis, with the exception of the odd weekend interrupted by middle aged man obligations. As a matter of fact, we actually started the process of writing songs. For shits and giggles I thought I would capture what it’s like trying to communicate ideas while in the midst of that whole song writing process. Go ahead, laugh at us, that’s the only completely honest response available ๐Ÿ˜‰
