Wait a minute, this keyboard feels greasy...
Okay, that's... well, a little better. ehhhhhhhhh
ANYWAY, here we are, October 5th, 2018. I'm thinking I could start making these updates monthly!
I recently released 3 new songs on Spotify, etcetera! I REMASTERED At the Time of Your Death, and also have 2 completely new songs out RIGHT NOW! Amuse has been awesome, and has allowed me to release for the first time in my life... SINGLES!
Course, I'm 20, so. XD. The revival was great, I got to lead 3 songs and play on many others, along with that, I got to lead electric with the other church band that came, and that was so super awesome!! (Except for this one dang note...………) I worked with our drummer to get one song better... but he forgot it when we got on Stage XD but I forgot some stuff, too. That's okay.
As part of my dad buying the POD for $300, I am supposed to be sending in three applications for jobs by Oct. 15. EH HA! Unfortunately, I'm trying to get my license beforehand, but we recently lost our bank card, which means we won't be able to schedule and pay for the driver's exam until we get the new one. Once I get my license, I'm hoping to apply to Guitar Center, Race Track, and Big lots, or maybe QT, actually.
So I've finished several new instrumentals, and written several new songs for a few of them! I'm thinking about recording vocals today, but I'm just unsure... I guess I should just do it. I'm always glad I did. I'd have to finish in 3 hours even to be done by 10 o'clock, though, and I think we all know by now THAT isn't going to happen... well, unless I choose a short song, and then try out the new experimental method of creating a harmony on the PC with New Tone in FL Studio. That could be 2 hours of recording and an hour of editing, though I'm not exactly fluent with the experimental new process, yet, so...
I've got a song called Whatever coming out that's basically just saying "whatever" to everything, cause you have to do that sometimes. I've also got a song coming out called "What's left to Say?" That is what I will affectionately dub a "Praise-Easycore song". And don't forget the endless others... "Sometime Soon", God talking to us saying that we can see Him in the world if we look, "I See The Truth", a classic country song about Jesus' forgiveness, and my already-soundcloud-released personal favorite " I Want To Be More (What I've Been)" about someone finally coming around to trying to live for God. And so. very. many. others.
I miss the Early Edition cast. Maybe I'll plug in some of them tonight. I wish I had more of the seasons on DVD. I think some of the later ones aren't even released, and the second season is pretty hard to find on it's own.
I guess if I'm going to do vocals I should go ahead and get started!
Recently I made a new song with the Line 6 PODHD500! It's a Guitar Multi-effects pedal board. Unfortunately, I think I'm going to take it back, bc the modeling just doesn't seem like it sounds quite as good as my Vyper VIP-1, and I can get the Sanpera footboard to go with that, instead. Regardless of these things, however, I made a song with it to see how it stood up in a mix, and I must say, not bad at all! I'm still not sure it sounds quite right... but it certainly doesn't sound terrible! Sometimes, the more I listen to it, the more I get attached to it's sound... whether it's good or bad at that point, I don't know, all I know is I'm becoming strangely fond of it for reasons perhaps limited to increasing familiarity. Sometimes I wonder if liking a guitar sound is completely that. But I guess the Boss ME-33 is testament to the opposite... xD
I went on the Peavey website and they didn't list a lot of artists for the Vyper… but ALL of them were in my more or less exact subgenre!! I read reviews of the Vyper online and I keep seeing people "I use this for high gain tones, the high gain tones are really good", even one person "A little frusterating with medium gain tones" and I keep looking at POD reviews going "I use this for medium gain things, I play in a blue rocks bla bla bla" like HMMMMMMMM INTERESTING.
I hope ya'll are havin' a good time of it, and stay tuned for more music updates from Emotional Relation!
