It’s Sunday, and I’m tired after a long weekend of rocking/not-camping/general trippy fun at Fire in the Flatlands, so today I’m bringing things down a bit. We return once more to my Neil Finn obsession with another pretty tune from One Nil/One All: Lullaby Requiem.
The original song itself is sweetly done, and I wish that, when I tried it, I had been able to get the drum shuffle to work — I like the effect. It didn’t go that way, though, so I just ran it on the tenor (electric, this time), altered the vocal a little, and added violin. As usual for me, I messed the lyrics up a bit. I have a gift.
I actually recorded this one a while ago, before I had the mixer and the condenser mic — it’s all run through the H2 to Garage Band, and the guitar is recorded by mic’ing an amp instead of lining straight into GB’s amp simulators. It’s not too bad for all that, but there are things I know I’d do differently now.
