River Running sound byte exclusive.

This is an extract from the home demo version I sent to Steve (Producer) yesterday. Steve heard the complete song and liked it a lot, so we should be able to go into the studio early next week. I want to have as much of it done before then. I need to re-do the whole song and bring it down 2-3 semitones because, as you can tell, it’s too high for my vocal range. Re-doing the main guitar part is no problem, the challenge will be redoing the harmonies. I need to solo those tracks, take note of the notes played, transpose them and find new harmonics if they exist. I play by ear, so no music theory will help me but that’s fine, just a little extra time is required.

I hope you enjoy being a part of the beginning of the creative process for this song. If so, I’ll keep posting updates until the song is released.

    1. The advantages of having Logic Pro at home. Mind you I cringe when I hear that high vocal. We did indeed bring the song down 2-3 semitones and recorded it. It’s now one of the four songs on July’s EP entitled ‘2+2=4’. I think we’re going to shoot some outdoor video footage late May/early June to complement the studio footage we did in early Feb. Certain songs need to have visuals to support them and I kind of feel River Running is one of them. It’s definitely a song that goes down well live though I wish I had a kick drum when I perform it :-).
