Day -2:
Upon reading that we could start a couple days early due to the short nature of the month, I started by recording a short demo I had floating in my head with my acoustic guitar. I put together some vocals I wrote a couple weeks ago that, until then, had no home and it worked out almost perfectly.  After an hour of trying to record my horrible voice, I gave up for the day, content that I had put together some very solid (in my opinion) instrumentals in a very short time.

Day -1:

Not a damn thing.

Day 1 (Feb. 1st):
Revisited the track I recorded a few days ago, and after a couple attempts at recording a lead, I realized that I may as well just turn it into an instrumental featuring all of my guitars for the hell of it.  I may add vocals at the end when it's all otherwise finished, but for now my focus is going to be on the instrumentation.  I have the words and the melody written, but I have to work on my voice.

Otherwise I have at least four more sets of lyrics written, and one with chords put to it.  That one I've actually played live, but I've never recorded it (does this void the rules if I've actually 'finished' it?  It's still nowhere near where I want it to be but I've played it on stage).  I also have an instrumental written for an intro that I'll record when I have downtime between other songs since I plan on seeing what I can do with one guitar, one take, and my pedals.

More later.

If that live song is 'unfinished' in that you can improve it, then you might as well use it. :)

I used pieces of old songs in the last challenge (and stuck a finished old unreleased song in there since I was over the minimum time anyway). You'll be good.
