Studio. Ack. Some things were golden and some weren’t. Recorded: Nothing to Say (really angry!), Necessary Evil (so-so, good vocals), Splinter (twice!), Under My Skin (random), Afterglow (crap vocals, might do a dub), A Long Time Since (rewrote the lyrics so they finally made sense), Burn (shockingly wonderful), Unstrung (ugh. don’t ask), All That’s True (cute, trebly), and Atlas Girl (nailed it). Attempted songs included Hold on Me, Touch, Up&Down, very serious efforts at Almost and Typical, and a near-perfect World In My Hand on which my E string fell out of tune during the crucial last chorus. Damnit. Similarly, I almost got through Typical after nearly a half hour of tries and flubbed the ending, while on Almost i still need to decide what the guitar should sound like. I’m recording everything through my amplifier directly into the board, so the guitar has beautiful tone quality but everything sorta sounds the same. Oh well. 5 songs from today are good enough to be publishable, and Under My Skin will make a hilarious outtake becaue it’s totally incoherent. So, 1/5 done, and another studio day tomorrow! Whoo!
