Chugging Along May 13, 2009

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!
