My musical creation, my first solo EP, my amazing pearl…is growing slowly but surely and it’s going to be so beautiful! I simply cannot wait to share it! It has been a dream come true to finally record my songs!
I spent another session working with my amazing engineer, Kyle Primus, this past Sunday. We focused heavily on editing two existing tracks (“Golf Cart Ride” and “My Pearl”) to get them just right. Here’s a clip of “My Pearl” which probably has the most modern vibes of all the songs chosen to be on this EP. It even has some synth parts, which were an unexpected addition!
I also laid down guitar lines for a song called “What’ll I Do Without You?” Turns out I had one of those moments with this song where it just wasn’t going right and my vision of what the song was “supposed to look like” was quickly dashed. It’s disappointing sometimes, when your plans are halted. But nonetheless, all I could do is move onward and upward!
All it took to finally nail the new song was …stripping away my pick and using my fingers instead, focusing on a tempo that balanced the separate grooves I wanted in the beginning and end, not singing while tracking my guitar parts, and generally just playing with more feeling… yep, that’s all it took. 😉
Despite a long session with some frustrations and lots of tedious listening, it was so fun and I’m excited to get back soon for another round of recording. Plus snuggling with Tito, the world’s best Chihuahua-Pekingese mix ever, was a sweet cherry on the top of the sundae.
