NaSoAlMo 2012, Day 2

November 2, 2012 | Comments

My goal today was to record the guitar part I wrote yesterday. When I booted up my recording computer, I found that I hadn't cleared off last year's NaSoAlMo files. I should have done that last weekend before the clock started ticking this month. It's not necessary to clear off the files, but I don't like all the clutter, so I started backing up the projects into bundles and deleting the loose files. Then I ran a defrag.

While the computer was defragging itself, I sat down at the keyboard. I immediately played a Dm/Am chord combo, and NaSoAlMo song #2 began to form. I worked on that until the defrag finished. Then I started recording guitar for NaSoAlMo song #1.

I worked through the pain in my fingertips and got a double-tracked guitar part done. It's in my iPhone now, so I can listen and write lyrics tomorrow.

I took a break to go to CVS to buy allergy medicine and aspirin and ended up also buying toothbrushes, deodorant and stronger reading glasses. I looked at the candy, but my willpower was strong.

Back home again, I sat down at the keyboard and fleshed out NaSoAlMo #2. I didn't record it to the computer, but I recorded the section needing lyrics to my iPhone Voice Memo app. Now I have two songs ready for lyric writing.

Progress:

  • NaSoAlMo 1: Untitled (Basic guitar recorded ~ 4:20)
  • NaSoAlMo 2: Untitled (Piano chords sketched ~ ?)
