Quick dropin

by Nick Smith in


Here's a quick update on what's going on. Been writing a new song the last few days.  I'll post lyrics when I'm finished.  I like where it's headed.  I've never written anything with so many layers before, both musically and lyrically.  I am liking it.  If I just force myself to write on a regular basis, the output is MUCH better.

I am tired.  Took a 3-hour nap tonight.  That's why I'm up so late.  At least I have Monday off.  Probably going to go visit my grandma Saturday and watch my old Midd club volleyball team play in a tournament over at Williams on Sunday.  After that, I have no plans.  Maybe I'll do some more serious recording.  Maybe get out the 4-track and try and get some real good takes.  I also need to explore getting the 4-track hooked into the computer so I can go digital in as seamless a manner as possible.

Cleaned my room a bunch tonight.  Very necessary.  A little more order in my world should encourage some more productivity.  We'll see how it goes.  Been listening to a lot of Beatles going through the unplayed music list on my iTunes.  On Revolver now.  Still doesn't do it for me as much as Abbey Road, Let It Be, White Album, Sgt. Pepper's, Rubber Soul.  It's good.  But I just don't think it's on that level.   I know a lot of people LOVE it.  I don't.  Sorry.  Someone needs to explain its greatness to me someday.  I just don't know what to look for.

That should do for the evening.  I'm going to bed.  Tomorrow's gonna be a late night.  Got a meeting at 6.  Oh yeah, if I remember to bring my guitar with me to work tomorrow maybe I'll play an open mic in Troy.  I'll let you know how it goes if that happens.
