Newest from 7/2 from Tim and Patrick:
We tried something new tonight. We chatted about the new song remotely and decided to record it. Let us know what you think.
previous updates below…
This week we’re going to try something a bit different. Most weeks Tim and I send the song back and forth, each adding things to it, but this week we decided to let you be a part of the process.
So here’s a very boring acoustic guitar riff with a little keys and I’m calling this one redwine. Tim will mess with it and post his additions. Then I’ll play with it and send it back and so on. Sort of like tennis.
Your job: You all please feel free to give us input on what you like and what you don’t like, as well as any ideas you might have. Cmon, it’ll be FUN!!! Just click to listen. (stop the player at the bottom first)
Edit from 7/1 from Tim:
Had a long day today so I only got to mess with it a little. Not sure if I really like what I added or not, but we’ll see what I think of it in the morn. I think I tend to agree with Kyle in thinking maybe no percussion but I went ahead and added a little loop along with some soft horns. I think lyrics and melody could dictate which direction this one goes but I really like the simplicity and cleanness of it right now.
Edit from 7/17 from Patrick:
I sat down today and listened to the song after having not listened for almost 2 weeks… I know, SLACKER. But, I started writing a melody and some lyrics and after I was done I remembered that we actually talked about a direction for this song. I had totally forgotten. BUT the direction I took was remarkably close to what we talked about. Who knows, we may scratch it and go with what Tim was thinking (at this point he hasn’t heard it yet). I recorded a few lines of harmony and then reversed some of them and cut em up. Kind of a cool effect, I think. What do you think?
