So Practice Went Well …

So practice went well with J.D. and we were able to run through eight songs. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a mic, so I may have to buy one. He told us about a studio he likes called 5 & Dime in Cooper Young. Harry, the owner, charges very reasonable rates, perfect for this low-key thing we’re doing. J.D.’s out of pocket until the 20th, and then maybe we can jump in and start recording the first song. I would think we could get a song done in eight hours, right? Finally finished lyrics for one of mine that we’ll record soon. Lyrics are fucking hard.

The Wheel of Progress …

The wheel of progress finally begins turning again. Richard and I got together last Thursday to run through a few songs that we could work up with J.D. He also brought over his brand-spanking-new Rickenbacker 4003W. Really nice, and dammit, it made me want a Rick all over again. Anyway, we head downtown in a couple of hours to see what happens. I’m not expecting much, as first practices are typically unproductive, but I may be pleasantly surprised.

Reality – Expectations = Happiness
