Chris & Kevin showed up around 10 pm....we arranged and recorded several of Kevin's guitar parts to a piece Chris (bass) and I (drums) worked up months ago. Chris & I re-recorded our parts with a different arrangement and a much tougher sound last week sometime, and so tonight Kevin got to lay his parts down. This is the first time I've recorded Kevin, which was a blast....he knows his shit.
Yesterday (which for me would be Monday....) I brainstormed a very minimal piece on the Rhodes and spent a good part of the afternoon and evening trying to map it out....this has some really tricky rhythms in it....After Kevin left at about 2 or 3 am, Chris and I worked out a rough arrangement for keys and drums, and I guess Kevin will play either bass or guitar. Here's the keyboard-only super-rough demo I did about 6 pm. I realized I couldn't get the amp I usually use to be loud enough, so I used the new TubeWorks bass amp because it's stupid loud....the advantage of the other setup is I have a distortion knob on the other amp, and I was annoyed at not having any fuzz, but I was pleasantly surprised by how clear it sounded through the bass amp so I went with that instead. I'll add fuzz later.
Comments not only welcome but encouraged....
