30-Day Music Challenge – Day 2

January 3, 2013 — Leave a comment

Alright. Today’s song took me 73 minutes from start to finish. Once again, I broke the second rule. I went 13 minutes over my max time goal of 60 minutes. I think I underestimated how difficult it is to find sounds/patches, compose song structure and melody, play/record parts, edit, and bounce a rough mix to MP3 in an hour or less. We’ll see if I can do it tomorrow.

I went in the jazz direction today and got out my Gibson ES-165 Herb Ellis hollow-body guitar. Please let me know in the comments what you think of the challenge, songs, etc. Any of you musicians want to take the challenge with me?

Stats: 6 tracks, 73 minutes start to finish.
