No Place (I'd rather be) lead section documented

Published: 16 September 2014

The first track (No Place (I'd rather be)) scheduled for recording has been documented (both the lead and rhythm tracks) using Guitar Pro 6.

That took a while, huh?

Well yeah. Unfortunately writing music is not my strong point. I generally sit and noodle on the instrument until something comes along and I start piecing things together. Very rarely do I sit down and formulate pieces of music on theoretical knowledge. This is a good thing and a bad thing at the same time.

So, having sat down and worked out the rhythm sections I began work on the lead sections. This took a bit of time as I would have to sit and work out the lead pieces by ear. It actually turned out to be a really cool training exercise as well! So now that this is all done I am pretty certain that the time in the studio is going to be highly productive and I am hoping to get through at least one track.

And then what?

With that being said, depending on how quickly I manage to get through the track, it might be a good idea to have a second track ready. For the second track I have been considering "Those little things".

The reasoning is two fold:

  1. It has a very special place in my family.
  2. There is no drum track.

Once that one is complete, I will begin work on "Rock It Man". Once that one is sorted it is on to "My Tornado" - which will probably go through a significant rework to sort out the lead pieces and a bit of reconstruction. Then, Lord willing, it will be "The path I walk" which I am really looking forward to reworking with a really good friend.

Wow! That is 5 tracks lined up so far! If you want to have your say in the last three tracks go check out Rabid Dog Labs and let me know!
