Put a new power supply in the studio computer today, and it is working great. Will get Mad Dog over in the next few days to put down the vox so we can finish this thing up.

If y'all are willing to be patient I will do what I can, when I can, as soon as I can. If not I'll understand.


well, send me whatcha got, i think i'm doing the words anyway? i'd like to hear the scratch tracks in the meantime.

There will be when it's done. It's far from done.

I have time to put more work into my song then, I take it? IF urge and opportunity meet, that is. I like where it's at, but it can always be better.

Good thinking, Jim. I do worry about that some, because I have a bad habit of making things worse if I work on them too much. But I do remember two things off the top of my head about my NPCA song. One, I would have liked more of a solid hook and the other was that my vocals could have had a tad more boost in the mid/high frequency.

This is when it helps to have a proof listing partner. Exchange songs to get a different set of ears on it. I know this would be hard on the weekly fights, but in longer projects it would be helpful.

I'll give each of the tunes I have received a listen and send you guys a detailed review on the song.

This project took a real slowdown. I think it was really necessary but I think now is the time to wake the sleeping beast and get this going again. So, progress reports?

well, you've been busy, dude! School + job and all. But we will talk about tackling the song.
