totally forgot to do the journal last night...awwweeeeeellll.
so i finally got time and sleep to work on the next song in the album. i'm going to come back to the one i was doing the other day just for the fact its bugging me. and i want to get as many finished tracks down asap, THEN go back and work on the frustrating ones.
this new one is going to be somewhere in the middle of the album. i think i know axactly where it might be.
also i think i'm going to change simon from a saxaphone solo to a keyboard solo. it just works better in the feel of things. i dont want him to bring out a sax just for the solo, then piss it off straight away. and a keyboard solo can sound alot bigger and fuller too.
since there is no lando stream to attend tonight i hope to get the whole instrumental part of it down tonight. then start on vocals tomorrow. i always like to seperate them. it gives me time to step back and look at the track a little more critically. I tend to get way to excited abou the track to notice the little problems, and if i take some time away from it i find that i notice the little things more.
i was thinking (lightly) about getting the album mastered once i'm finished. but i just dont think i have the cash for it. mastering is highly expensive, and i wonder if its even worth it. like it would be amazing...but expensive :(
so far i have some time off this week, and i want to aim for about 3 songs this week. plus the touch ups on the other one i finished. but that all relies on me keeping that time off. and in my industry, quiet can change to extreemly busy in just a few hours. its pretty crazy. for example, i was bragging about not having to do much for australia day. then i end up working like a crazy mo fo :P
and i still want to do a small series of ads for the album. just simple things like radio adds. also, is there anyone here who lives in new york. and if so, do you know any of the popular radio stations over there? if so tell me, it would help heeeeaaaaps :D
i thiiiiink thats it for the moment. i'm gonna g rela for a little bit before getting back into this song. i've still got a headache from that metal band earlier
