In order to record yesterday, I swapped shifts with my friend Ben at work… So I end up working 3:45pm-12:15am.. as I sat at work, a firece snow storm started its way in. I decided to crash at my parents house so I’d have a shorter drive to Donny’s studio.
I got to Lansing today just before 10am…. not feeling to well but detirmined to get some good drum tracks done.
First song we took to task today was “On The Outside Again” (you can hear a rough demo on our page). Now mind you, I only finished WRITING this song last month… So on the drive over, I was working on my drum arrangement… I wanted to record it while it was fresh in my mind.
Next up was “Room For Two” which we’ve decided to re-record from our 2007 sessions.. Great feel and vibe with this song this time around… it came together pretty quick.
“Truly Mean It” was the 3rd and final song of the day… I love playing this one live so I was jazzed to finally record. Donny seemed to dig it. We wrapped up at about 1:30 or so and I made my way home… just in the nick of time as i BARELY beat the dumping of snow that we got!
So 4 o the 9 songs that have drums on them have been finished! nearly half way there! Below are a few pics from today’s session!
