On a Jet
I played bass using a capo on this one.
Hi all, great to be cooking with you all again.
And glad to be back making/recording tunes for the first time of the fatherhood.
I decided to rock out to a B2 cello drone. Played it for a while and wrote a chord progression over it. Kind of a stone soup (drone soup?) situation where I kept adding veggies and eventually could no longer taste the stone. But no stone does not mean no rock. I had a good time screaming for this one. Rock and roll.
But the stone does come thru nicely when the space opens up a little.
I gave it a little bit of a classic rock and/or 90s rock treatment in the guitar, a rarity for me i think.
Here I am
And I’m goin left
Beers and wine
But I’m on a jet
(By the wing)
Well I could pee
But the guy’s asleep
(In the aisle seat)
Years not lying awake alone
Here’s what I wanna know
Gonna buy my ride right
(right thru the snow and weather balloons)
Looking for feedback on
Jeez, as always... the mix. i tried to just do the vocals straight up, minimal bullshit this time. how do they come thru? i'm usually pretty nervous about singing and hide behind flange. also often when i record vox, i'm self conscious about upstairs neighbors etc so i do my quiet voice, which often produces too much wind from my mouth into the mic. welp, no more upstairs neighbors now, just a sleeping baby. So I actually tried singing with volume for parts of this one. Curious what you think the beat and style of the song reminds you of (i have a few thoughts). Also, i think this is prob my first songy-song that doesnt have keyboard/synth in it (i can't find my cable for my keyboard) so it's all strings (+ vox and digital drums). Too much guitar/bass? Could something be replaced with keys?
