Awesome rehearsals this week!

This week was incredibly productive! TWO new complete songs written AND an AMAZING rehearsal with John and Clint! I was blessed with TWO new and complete songs this week. One is a heavy progressive piece.. which is fun since I haven't written anything super heavy and dense in a while. This one will be fairly complex.. not too unlike the Christmas song I contributed to the "Emmanuel" cd/album.. and the other will end up having a lot of piano in it.. which will be a total pain to nail in the studio.. haven't seriously played any piano since college.. which is really sad seeing that I studied classically from elementary school to college and NEVER had an actual guitar lesson in my life?!? lol... funny how things twist and turn on life's trip to where ever we'll wind up. I was just always drawn to the guitar and felt like once I got my hands on one.. that I'd found MY voice.. add to that studying percussion formally from middle school through college (percussion was actually my minor.. again.. go figure!).. This week's rehearsal went just about as smooth as one could hope for and even more surprisingly since we hadn't actually played as a unit together in a couple of weeks.. just out of the blue while talking at what was to be the end of the session.. we started just randomly jamming.. songs that we'd never actually played together.. next thing you there were 4-5 NEW tunes to add to the sets... it all just flowed so easily that we really couldn't do anything but laugh and roll with it.. MORE to come true believers... \m/ LIVE LOUDLY!!!(tm) Kev

On a roll...

On a bit of a roll this weekend.. wrote TWO new tunes!.. the problem is how to keep focused on recording songs while new ones pop into your head?!?
