Hey everybody, Happy St. Patrick’s Day and happy first day of spring. It may not have felt like spring today and I heard a local weather forecaster say something about a “snizzle” on the first day of “sprinter,” but I’m hardly deterred.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, check out the Unicorn Song by the Irish Rovers.
This past Saturday, Beau and I started tracking “official” demos for our next recording. The afternoon wasn’t without an initial setback when my acoustic guitar pickup wasn’t working. It forced me to use my electric to record the tracks. So we laid down a click track, rhythm guitar, scratch vocals and a drum track for “After the Last Parade” and “I Never Got to Say Goodbye.” I’ll have to come back and record acoustic on the tracks and in the next couple weeks we’ll get Shane to lay down bass, Dave to lay down electric guitar, Corey to lay down keyboards and, last but definitely not least, we’ll get Liz to sing her vocal parts. Then we’ll repeat the process on ten more songs.
In other Bunker news, the Ten Year Bunker Reunion show is coming up quickly. I’ll be making a facebook event soon and I can’t wait to see all of you and share a decade worth of Bunker stories.
It was great to meet up with my friend Mark at the Bunker last night, but man, did I stay out too late and pay for it today. Stay tuned for a collaboration.
“Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy it will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.” – Henri Nouwen
