151125 Practice Notes


Tom Ray

Rob Gugel

Cliff Hammer

Idea just came to us as we picked up our instruments

piano plays:

EC, DB, CA low/high note structure for chords

Tom Liked when Rob did more the drum fill line run on the song more, example about 7min into tape 151125-STE-027

Tape 2 151125-STE-001 3:30 interesting rythmn

Tape 2 151125-STE-001 3:50 there is a really strong groove

Rob suggests going the opposite of toms chords to make it less happy starting with A

Tom says with on the second chord cliff should go Aflat

cliff tried A Aflat C

Tape 3 151125-STE-028 14:50 Dropped the Aflat and went A D F G G# for bass which took it out of the happy realm and gave it a vibe

16:00 Rob came in and played an Oceans 11 type shuffle groove. That's when it really came together

Tom started alternating a low note in the piano line.

Tape 151125-STE-002 Cliff and Rob play a groove idea that may work as another part

160803 Practice Notes


Tom Ray

Rob Gugel

Rob plays the keyboard part as the guitar to make it not so pounding.

We try it as the single notes instead of chords

so E then C, D then B, C then A

We try alternating so that instead of the guitar waiting one beat for it to come in, at times he can start it on the one instead to mix it up
