So, a week is gone in the album challenge. And I have gotten done almost nothing. Minecraft has sucked my time away, especially with devoting a lot of time to building a city. Add to that school and little inspiration, and you have a very unsuccessful week.
I got done:
Working on a track, feel kinda eh about it. It's something, but nothing really exciting. It'll do though. I have to figure out what to do with it from here, though.
I also had, the idea to sample this speech in a song somehow, and I have a few ideas to go with it but I'll have to see how they progress first.
Looking at week two, I hope to be more productive. I'm gonna do a bit of brainstorming/writing/jamming, and I hope to get something out of it. I want do develop the song I've written partially so far, as well as come up with at least the start to a few more.
Snow days. I love them but they decrease my productivity on stuff I do at home rather than increase it. Today was no different. I only got a couple things done with my music.
I used a chord progression I laid out yesterday and wrote an intro for it. That was it. So hopefully tomorrow can be more productive. I hope to get recording early instead of waiting till late evening like I did today.
So, the 28 day album challenge. Last time I tried this I failed pretty badly, came up with a 2 minute song that took all of a half hour and that was it. So I want to do better this time.
Last time I had goals of what I thought the album would be like, this time I don't. I want to record once a day and I'll just take the songs where I feel like taking them. If necessary, when there's about a week left I'll look at what I have done and then concentrate my efforts on what needs the most work.
I'll be recording with guitar, vocals, bass, drums, violin, keyboard, and possibly mandolin if I find a way to incorporate it.
I'll probably only update my blogs a couple times a week, but I'll see how it goes.
Eh, so here's the deal. I procrastinated for most of the month, and that left me with this week to finish (which is a somewhat busy week anyway). I tried, the other day, to write stuff but the juices weren't flowing right.
However, I will be back for the summer challenge. And I will be writing, outside of the challenges.
