Clear Your Path

====

Nick Jonas really is a better guitar player than I am.

====

Friday, April 15, 10:10 - 10:50 PM. Started late this week. I got some new hardware and I’m still experimenting with the hardware that I own. I think I’m going to spend the next few weeks trying to make some new sounds and to tweak a bunch of my patches and setup. With respect to composition, I’ll try to stick to the basics.

Sat, April 16, 16:45 - 17:50 PM. I have a bit of catching up to do, this may be a short music week. I can crank out ideas for a song in an hour and a half but I haven’t been very good about actually crafting something that seems to have a full beginning, middle, and end in an hour and a half.

9:00 - 10:50 PM. Okay, this sounds like a song at the end of the session, but there are a lot of finer touches that could be applied.

Sun, April 17, 10:00 - 11:10 AM. I spent a lot of time getting my hardware to do a good intro. It didn’t work out so I scaled it back a bit.

Total time: 4 h 45 min, 141 bars at 175 bpm.

Instruments used:

Jackson Guitar & Logic Amps (lead and rhythm guitar)
Dave Smith Mono Evolver Keyboard (bass)
Korg Volca Beats (drums)
Native Instruments MASCHINE (drums)
Native Instruments Massive (lead, bass)
Logic ES2 (pads)

Nice track, had me grooving along. I like the sounds and the drum and bass beat. Fun to read your process, I can relate to a lot of that smile This is first week I've come across your music (thanks for the comment on mine), I'm playing through some of your past stuff - nice work!
