... nothing too crazy today... we demoed up another tune this afternoon and wrote/demoed one this evening. Sometimes "riff happens" and it's good to just get something down.
I made a template for Pro Tools so we can quickly demo things up... 4 guitar tracks, bass, MIDI drums. This comes in really handy getting ideas down... it drives me crazy when I hear bands are taking weeks to demo up tunes... should only take you 3-4 hrs to demo up a song!
Also, if we have something decent, we already have a session set up and the guides done... granted the tempo is staying the same... even then it's not a ton of work to adjust the tempo... or the key.
... I was only out of the house for about an hour today. Going a little stir crazy right now, but mainly because I'd like to go walk around some stores or something... we're sorta out in the suburbs, which is nice and quiet, but it's tough when you need to drive everywhere to get anywhere.
... a lot of sweet trucks in the area though.
Aside from that... "that" being demos... Kyle and I were hooked on the show "60 Days In"... it's a show where they took 7 normal people, and put them in jail to a) see how they'd adapt and b) do research on how the jail is actually functioning... aka corruption. Give it a couple episodes... so good!
I'm off to bed before midnight.
Currently watching Dead Rising on Crackle... zombies.

P.P.S. I thought I was off to bed before midnight... I tried!
