365 DotU, Day 69 Goes Equestrian With The Rolling Stones

Among the Rolling Stones songs that I really like, one that I’ve never gotten the chance to play before is “Wild Horses”. It’s a really cool tune, and if I were feeling more ambitious, I probably would’ve tried to do a multi-guitar take on the original arrangements. Because I seem to have exhausted my supply of ambition this week (already!), I decided to try simplifying it instead, so I cut some chords out to make the guitar changes easier to play and sang it solo. I did record a version with a second vocal, but the more I listened to it, the more I preferred the solo version. That’s the one I ended up keeping, anyway.

Once again, I felt good enough about how things were sounding through the Mackie and the condenser mic that I just used the video sound from iMovie and didn’t bother dubbing the simultaneously recorded (and slightly cleaned-up) version from Garage Band.
Oh, a note on posting: Because my computer’s power supply just took an unfortunate (and possibly dog-induced) dirt nap, I won’t be recording (or posting, probably) anything for the next few days. Luckily, as I made this challenge up myself, I am free to set the rules. There will be 365 total posts in the series — they just won’t all occur on 365 consecutive days. Huzzah for flexibility!


About L. M. Bernhardt

For a good long while (15 years or so), I taught philosophy at a little private university in northwest IA, and occasionally branched out into playing music, dabbling in photography, experimenting with food, and writing nonsense on my blog. The philosophy teaching part ended in 2017 (program elimination via prioritization), but never fear! I've just finished my MLIS at San Jose State University, and I'm currently on the market looking for new adventures in either philosophy or LIS. For now, I labor at a fairly interesting administrative job in order to support my dogs in the lavish manner to which they've become accustomed.
