This is a live update of the recording of “samuels song”
We start on a new song, Samuels sång. The last song “I am” went good!
We have some arrangement changes on this song. hopefully it will take about 2,5 h to finish it!
we have to find the feeling first before we start to record…
We are now ready to do some takes. we’ll see if David will like the song.
He wants to tune in the drums. The first take will have to wait some minutes longer…
Here we go!
First listening… Samuel thinks the drums in the chorus is to much. It is a different song, only one verse and a instrumental part after the first chorus. We have a discussion about the arrangement. David would like to have a second verse. And because he is the king we’ll try that. Mike wants to try to lower the tempo. David also wants the vox to start at once.
To sum it up, there is a lot we have to change on this song, but we all tink that it is worth it since it is a really cool song.
now we have a idea!!!
Starting to take form, but backman have gone away to get some “filtklubbor” and we haven’t recorded one take yet… If we are going to have it finished at 19:00 as planned, we have to hurry. We have one more song to record tonight.
Backman is back and we have told him about all the new changes. It’s time to try it again!! There is a possibility that this will be the last song of the album!!!
Now they try to make a doubletempo thingy on the outro… i don’t like it very much…
The first decent take!! This is going to be a great song! We need 2 more takes like that!
We have the song now, but not on disc, only in our hearts… We need a couple more takes.
but the ending… Maybe one of our best endings in my opinion!
David: “suddenly it became a single…”
after a short break we’re back in buisness. we have some great takes. we have to take some more just to be sure. Then we have to eat strawberries!
The last take, perhaps…
recording an alternative ending…
That’s it! We have it!
Only one hour and 20 minutes later then planned, but it was worth it. Now some strawberries before the last song: “Slowly”
