Like the month of October I’m almost done. I went over to Rich’s house (by the way, I don’t know if I ever explained this: I’ve been going over to Rich Bernett’s home to record on his equipment. Our band, Go Home Robot, practices there so he’s used to me taking over his living space and playing loud music into the night) over the weekend and spent several hours adding overdubs to the 2nd half of the piece. That rambling guitar part I was crying about last week is still pretty rambling but now it’s coated with some layers so it’s not quite as jank-town. I had been worried about the not-so-super-computer telling me there was no more room for tracks and my fears were eventually confirmed. Luckily I was able to get what I most needed on to the session before it cut me off. In all honesty it was good that it did, otherwise I might have gone overboard. As it stands, there are acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, piano, organ, pedal steel, noise and voices. On Sunday, I awoke to find a bell set that I ordered had arrived!! So that may make it’s way on to the piece tonight…but only if it works. I caught myself trying to add another drum track last-minute on Saturday and quickly realized that I was being ridiculous. So tonight, if I add anything at all it’ll be some voice-over and super-sparse bells. Aside from that junk, it needs to be mixed and sent out.

I’ve had a lot on my mind regarding this whole process, but I’ll save it for my next post because I want to get this thing totally put to bed first.

I believe in you fully and am really excited to hear the final product. I will, however, have to sigh ever so slightly as I listen…about not being able to donate the undertone….Much love.
