So, it’s the day before the 28 day recordathon that is the RPM Challenge.
I’ve spent most of the day on prep and setup. The room needed to be cleaned and organized, I had to locate my gear (still missing the power adapter for my Alesis drum machine) re-string my guitar, figure out what software I’ll be using (chose Audacity over Garage Band) and see if any of the audio files I’ve scattered around various computers will be useful for this endeavour (short answer: probably not)
In all that digging, I did come across a few mp3′s I made; really rough versions of song ideas that I recorded with the intention of playing in my car, in hopes that they would help me figure out other parts to be added, especially the lyrics, which seem to be a large stumbling block for me lately.
Here’s a little piece of one of those, that I actually have about half the lyrics for, called “Cellophane”, or “Cellofame”, depending on how much of a cleverdouche I decide to be about it.
As you can hear, there are some needs-improvements all over the place, but I figure it’ll be that much easier to share the good stuff with the wider world if the less than shit has already made it out.
Tomorrow the fun officially starts.
