So, what are my “priority songs?” Splinter and Necessary Evil will probably get recorded once every time i’m in the studio; Atlas Girl was my number one priority but i hit it so well today that i can start dubbing backgrounds on it tomorrow. I’d really like to get a good version of Unstrung recorded (especially because i finally finished writing the last verse), but it’s technically very difficult for me to play. Otherwise, i have a pile of 20 lyrics in my guitar bag, and i just flip through them until i find the one closest to the tuning i’m stuck with. Today Burn got played because i was coming out of A Long Time Since (CADGCD to FADGCD), and i got it on my second try! Typically i hit the majority of my songs very easily if i don’t stress about them too hard, but there are always two that kill me (on the demo: Under My Skin and Other Plans). Sometimes the solution is to play them to death (i played Other Plans eight times back to back and chose the best version), and sometimes you need to reapproach the problem. Tomorrow i’ll be attempting both.
