Averaging 2 a week at the moment, so I'll need to step it up a bit, anyway here's the next one which I actually think this has got potential, needs a little re-working of the lyrics, and a re-recorded vocal line, (similar to Mr. Right Now? maybe!)...

Trying for another album-a-day today. I might succeed, I might not, but I already got this song out of it.

Glenn Case - Rise Chicken

At the very least, it helps to bring my 50/90 total up to 9!

ROCK!

Thanks for the encouragement, Sam!

Third one's done. I'm guessing that I probably need about 8 more minutes of music now!

Well, I would have to respond to THAT by saying it takes one to KNOW one! Thank you, Melvin!

Taking a barbecue break at a friend's house, but I brought my guitar and a notebook. Maybe I'll get a song or two done while I'm here. I still have until 4:30AM (PST) to finish the AAD.

I finished this one just before I left.

Glenn Case - Incidentally

ROCK!

5th song written and recorded. 5 hours before I reach the 24 hour mark, and I need about one more minute of music. So close!

Glenn Case - Handful and a Half

ROCK!

I've written enough songs today to qualify as an AAD! Yay!

Glenn Case - What Is Really Going On?

Now I'm just going to tweak a few things before the 4:30 AM deadline, and call it good for the night.

ROCK!

Hey, Weakest - are you a tuneflow-er under another name? Or are you just borrowing titles from various places?

Man, suit. Are those tunes up for download anywhere?

I'd like to say I'd try it, but I probably won't. It's just too much. Despite that, I probably wrote upwards of 30 songs this summer. Just didn't fully record them all.
