trackback

Yes, I’m still in “reduced hours” mode, working slowly but very steadily on the third verse of Symbolic Dog Blues. After getting most of the drum track in place, I had some doubts about organ fills and chord structure in certain spots, so I took a detour to write bluesy organ music.

The bluesy organ writing went well, so I am back to the drum and percussion tracks, ready to finish them through the end of the song. This part is pure point-and-click editing, straightforward but tedious, building from the material already recorded for the first two verses.

After that comes the bass, and I love this song’s bass! Its third verse is mostly the same as its second, though I want to record a fresh take with a bit more punch to lead us to the song’s finale.

After that, there’s only—let’s see—organ, guitar solos, Kazooka, vocals, and dialog!
