It's been a while since I've done anything recording-wise. Had a lyric writer's block for a bit from which I've now recovered. Cloudy time for now so not that much solar energy. So when the sun came out this noon I immediately took advantage of that and set my electric 12-string up for doing rhythm guitar parts for two songs. Including one which I've initially not been sure about, but it has started to come along lately. So what you hear is an arpeggio I came up yesterday on the acoustic. #danelectro #OwnTheTone #twelvestring #musiciansofinstagram #recordingsession
EST: Vahepeal oli paus salvestamisest. Päikest küll oli jaanuaris, aga jube külm oli, rohkem küttepuid kulus ka. Peale selle maadlesin olin ka veel loominguliselt blokeeritud, väga raske oli sõnu kirjutada. Mis iseenesest väärib küll eraldi postitust tulevikuks, aga mainin praegu, et eelmine nädalavahetus sain viimaks paar emakeelset teksti valmis, nii et viimaks suudan edasi minna.
Aga nüüd on hoopis selline ilm, et pilves ja sajuvõimalusega, aga ilmateade ei ütle midagi selle kohta, kuna päikest näeb järgneva 24 tunni jooksul, sestap tuleb loota parimat. Seega, kui nägin täna päikest taevas keskpäeva paiku, kohe kasutasin võimalust. Seadsin oma Danelectro üles ja tegin rütmikitarripartiid kahele loole, mis neid vajasid.
Siit edasi, niipea, kui vähegi võimalik, proovin trummid teha ja hakata vokaalidega jändama, kui jälle päikselisemaks läheb. Aga see nädal jätkuvalt ilm pilves ja sajune. Enamasti. Hea, kui natukenegi päikest näeb.
ENG: I had a bit of a pause from recording. There was solar energy, but it was damn cold and I used up a bit more firewood than expected. Also, I struggled with the writer's block, felt too stuck in terms of my ability to come up with new lyrics. While this deserves a post on its own, I'd just mention that last weekend I did manage to produce a couple of texts in my native language, so I'm finally able to move on.
Now the weather is overcast and rainy. The forecasts however say nothing about whether I can expect any sun within the 24 hours, so I have to hope for the best. Thus, as soon as I saw the sun peaking out around noontime today, I quickly set up my Danelectro and commenced laying down a couple of rhythm guitar parts that I needed to do.
From now on, as soon as possible, I hope to do the drums next. Might have to start setting up the drum mikes already. And then commit myself to do the vocals, as soon as it gets sunny again on a more consistent and reliable basis. For now, it's good to see sun whenever it appears.
