Well, I wanted to write about the All-Star game today because that was one of the best baseball games I've ever seen - but instead I went to the recording studio today and now no one cares what I think about the game (Joe Morgan should stop his attitude about how much better the All-Star Game was "back then" - those guys competed at the highest level last night.)
Anyway, I spent a very productive day in the recording studio. I got acoustic guitar and vocals done for three songs- "Neon Sign," "This Time Around," and "So Far Away." I also did harmonica on "Neon Sign."
These three songs complete all the skeletons of songs for my next record. We need to lay down drums, bass and back up vocals and then it'll be done. Here are the songs I have at my disposal (I may not use all of them)
As You Wish
Shallow Water Blackout
So Far Away
This Time Around
Kids Playing Guns In the Street
What's the Past Got In Store?
Second Rate Song (rock version)
You're Not Just Another Girl
So there it is. It's getting there. I'm really pleased with the direction and hopefully it'll get set up soon. I'm playing tomorrow night at Pyramid Sacramento from 6:30-8:30pm and then I'll be out of town for the weekend. I need time to rest so this weekend should be the right prescription. Although, the other prescription could be more cowbell. That usually works as well.
