111119 Practice Notes
Rob was messing around on the web based music creation site audiotool.com and was going to do a remix of the song "To walk" but ended up writing something new.
Rob and Tom Worked with it in audiotools and from some of the different melodies that Rob made and created an arrangement of the song.
Then they created some other parts to the changes in the song using the Tonematrix instrument.
Exported the song from audiotools and added Tom and Rob added an idea to the verse part of the song Tom played a bouncy rhythm on the Rhodes and Rob doubled it on the bass mandolin (on the second audio file).

111123 Practice Notes
At Tom's house, after trying to add stuff to the audiotool export of the songs other parts things started to sound messy so we tried to recreate a lot of the parts.
Rob played a new beat on the octopad. Then Tom had him do a marching band type rhythm on a snare. Wanted to use brushes but Rob forgot his stick back so used some paint brush tools that were around instead.
Tom had Rob lay down a pulsing one note (A) on the acoustic guitar
Figured out the lead line from the audio tools file and played that on Rob's strat and intro'ed it with a bottle cap slide.
Tom and Rob came up with a guitar melody for the verse part and made it 8 measures long. The second half of the verse Tom had Rob do a repeating hammer guitar part.
While Tom was setting up the levels before Rob had a repeating effect turned on the guitar and Tom used it for the break after the verse.
Moved around some of the drum beats Rob did with the new arrangement.
