I know I haven’t written anything in quite a while, but there isn’t a whole lot to write about. Everything here seems to be at a standstill and essentially unchanged.
Since this seems to be our reality for the foreseeable future, we have been keeping busy with music at home. We have a goal of putting together another video every couple weeks, and using the rest of our time to learn new material and improve skills, techniques, etc. This last video was recorded directly from the mixing board to the iPhone, rather than recording the room sound. This is still taking a lot of learning and tweaking and fiddling but we’re happier with the results. We are also using midi tracks for the drums instead of the drum machine. A midi track is unforgiving and you must start, stop, and play exactly with it but when you succeed, the drums are more realistic and interesting since they are created for the specific song. I’m sure that’s more than you ever wanted to know about what goes on behind the scenes.
So, here’s our latest –

Now we are excited about starting work on the next set of songs!
