Haha thank you for the comment on move it. I think I only have one track this year that's anywhere near the same genre as fishing, it's called withdrawn. I'm all over the place when writing. Could be metal, could be hip hop, a dance track, mellow acoustic track. I dig it all! Cheers.
Thank you loads, Katie. To be honest, I don't know how this old Windows 95 machine keeps on ticking! It's over two decades old now!
Thanks for your kind words on Star Light! It was fun to work through those rising chords on piano (which I don't actually play) - then to figure out how to play them on guitar!
What do you prefer?
Writing lyrics or music?
I know you do both.
I prefer music...but I can do both.
But I'm open to do back and forth too.
btw - I'd love to collab!
Oh and we could start the lyric process via a shared Google Doc. I like to choose the topic, generate a song plot for how the story will develop through the song from section to section, and then flesh it out through each section.
I use Logic on my computer but use SoundTrap (a web-based DAW) for working with students and collaboration. Perhaps we could come up with the ideas via Skype and then record on SoundTrap. It’s not exactly real time, but one person makes a change and saves and the other person sees a sync button and clicks it to push through the changes.
Hmm. Doesn’t sound like a great option for full collaboration. Perhaps we could record a Skype video session in order to get full two-way audio.
So far I’ve only done collaboration in the form of setting lyrics to music. But with your streaming experience it could be a great “in” to a full equal collaboration from start to finish on a song (say in a 1 hour session). That live play with Mace (was it live?) was fantastic. If it was live, how can you synchronize sufficiently to play live without disruptive latency? Skype, FaceTime, whatever. Excited to try.
Hi Katie, wow mom of four and writing here. Yay for you and have a fun February!
Hi Katie. I spotted your post on Facebook and thought I'd drop by to say hello. 😀
Your sweet comments made my day thank youuuu!
I know! I miss all the buddies that used to participate every year back in those early days.
You still in contact with any of them?
