new record, day one
Jack, (engineer) Jonathan and I got in there last night and started laying down some tracks for the new record. First Jon and I put down another drum track for Keith’s version of “Photograph”. Not replacing the old one, mind you, just putting down ANOTHER one! You know, like the Ringo LIVE show, two drummers. It sounds pretty damn big and bad. When that was done, Jon asked “OK, what we doing now?” Knowing that he didn’t drive all the way from Durham just to sit around with my ugly mug, I showed him one of my new songs, “Lost Your Number”. He set up a loop and got me a good guitar sound and off we went, vocals, bass, piano, etc. It turned out NOTHING like I was hearing it (which happens a lot!) but still very hooky and cool. It may not be the final version but it sure is a HI-FI-lootin’ soundin’ demo! They loved it and I was really glad to get started.
