Tom Ray

Added a guitar line from sample clean_3.mp3
Recorded a vocal line 
Song is tentatively titled "Forget it" based on the chorus.

Lyrics

A song came on, at the end of the night.
Unlocking it turned, they lived close by

Chorus
If it's gone then forget it.
it's gone then forget it, it's gone.

Maybe your after me, maybe I'm after you.
All that's left is on the right.
so easy when they want you out.

120818 Practice Notes


Involved
Tom Ray

Tom rearranged the parts in Renoise, took all the effects off the guitar and set a lot of the levels making that stronger.
Added lowered the shaker and added shaking of some car keys blended into it.
Got rid of most of the guitar on the verses except for some accents.
Added a bigger snare and a more rhythmic hi-hat part on the 2nd and 3rd choruses to make it punch.
Removed the extra chorus at the end. Still need to create a 3rd verse.

Tom arranged some more in Renoise.
Removed the chorus lyrics, they were too repetitive and added a clarinet sample and ran it through a cabinet simulator with distortion.
Also recorded the 3rd verse.

Lyrics

3rd verse:
It don't take long to say it's so,
I remember it all.
Turning down hallways, grab it, done, now go.

Worked more on pinning down the structure of performing the song. Mark and Tom discussed what to do about vocals for the chorus. After a few tries with lyric ideas and melodies, Tom still thought it was making it sound too repetitive like the original chorus did. Then sang a descending "ooh" part with a harmony that went up in the middle and decided to use that. Liked the way it made the storyline seem like the song would float from verse to verse.

Mark changed the accent in the chorus that he was hitting.
Tom sang the verse looser to match where the bass note comes in halfway through.
Bass and vocal lined up good there with that note. Keeping it loose at 1.53
Mark dropped the extra quarter notes in the chorus and changed where the accent was here and it worked a lot better. at 2.58
Mark shows what he changed the accent in the chorus to. at 4.44
Tom points out to Cliff the note from earlier about keeping the verse loose and it matches up with the bassline. at 5.01
