So I finished recording and writing the songs, fine. I just couldn’t stop, though. I’ve been fussing with the recordings. I think I’ve finally got them to “passable demo” status. Here’s the new, re-mixed, re-mastered, re-messed-with “album”:
I think that, ultimately, the best thing to come of this whole process really is what I’ve been able to learn about recording. I still have a very long way to go before I am even marginally competent, but I’m starting to feel more comfortable with the mechanics of the business. I think I’m finally ready to start messing with Tracktion or some other mixing software that doesn’t hold my hand quite so kindly as Garage Band does. Learning is exciting!
OK — now on to something else, for real. FOR REAL!
