Why hello there people!
Welcome! Have a seat, kick up your heels and relax.

The fruits of my labour are yet to fully pay off, but at least now I can see that they will pay off if I put the time into this project.

Haze is going to be the first song on the album, and like all the songs on the album, it will be completely instrumental. It is about breaking through the haze of writers block that shrouds us all when we first attempt to write songs. It contains (so far) 2 guitars with a dash of Reverb applied and a hint of delay thrown in for good measure, these guitars will be clean and not distorted. So far I have 1 minute of this recorded but the floodgates are almost open on this one, as the further I progress the easier it is to come up with more material for it. I plan on this one being around 3 mins. But whatever I plan and what actually happens are 2 completely different things.

Midnight Melancholy:
I know, It sounds depressing. But really it's about staring up at the sky at night and simply reflecting on one's self. Again. This contains clean guitars with dashes and hints of reverb and delay, and is a fairly light piece so far. I'm wanting this one to be more ambient in nature rather than "in your face" kind of stuff. It features a natural harmonic backbone and coming up with a main melody that can fit over this delicate backbone is proving difficult at best
This song so far comes in at 45 seconds, plans for this one ranges to 2:30 at least.

No Turning Back:
Now this one is heavier, featuring a DS-1 distortion cranked as high as it can with the tone in a neutral position.
There's very little to say about this one. I'm not sure what influences me on this one.

This is untitled (duh) it's distorted to near fuzz like proportions in the intro and uses a wah to "fade" the guitar in. again. Little to say on this one.

Well. So far so good I'll say. I've calculated that I need to write two songs per week to meet the 20min target (with a few mins extra ) and sure I don't have two complete songs yet, but I certainly have enough swimming around my hard drive to say this week has been pretty good. I can safely say that I can see this turning out quite well.

Next Week will contain more songs (hopefully some complete ones this time) , Exotic dancers, and the one and only Mr. Jack Daniels!
Plus more stuff to write about.
See Y'all next week!

I refuse to resume my daily life until I get those exotic dancers!!!

Looking foward to this, really starting to sound good. Strange, I just wrote lyrics which are pretty much about what you said Midnight Melancholy is about.

This means war! *blows on trumpet* : peace :
(Good luck with the next week!)
