A taste of things to come…
The fruits of something I referred to in “My Blues” posted March 16, 2011
first take acoustic track: She’s Dead.
You’ll understand, if you’ve listened to any of my music or watched any of my videos, that I am a fan of the “wall of sound”! I have many a studio trick up my sleeve. The videos are documenting the creation of the latest Eleventh Hour song – and it is set to be another epic.
I thought it might be fun to play with a few ideas in the meantime. I wondered if I could just pick a song that has meant something to me in my lifetime – and record it in one take. Just me and a guitar. Why not?
So, I’ve plucked “She’s Dead” by Pulp out of the ether and given it a go. I haven’t ever played or sung it before. I don’t know the chords and I haven’t even listened to the song recently… but that makes it all the more enjoyable! Ha ha! And it’s one take – the first take. With none of my usual production trickery! Just me. I thought this could be something I could do more often when I get a spare moment (like now where I’m waiting for Bill to send me vocal tracks).
Anyway… forgive me for singing in the afternoon (evening/nighttime is when my vocal chords are at their best!!!).
Enjoy (or not):
