Progress

After a break of many weeks I have finally recorded my last guitar part for EP2. It took much longer than anticipated due partly to the odd timing of the song and mostly due to me not having picked up a guitar for about 5 weeks. Ah well, got there in the end.

My time in Cardiff comes to an end in a weeks time so hopefully that will see The Hair Thieves start to make real progress towards wherever it is that we are heading

Oh, one last thing: I have just bought one of the Behringer TU100 tuners for � and very nice it is too. Excellent value if you don't want to spend � on the Boss.

England Out. HT In

With England out of the world cup now, work can now restart on EP2.

I've listened to what we have done so far for EP2 and EP3 and after consulting E, we have decided we are not entirely convinced by one of the tracks for EP2. Musically it is very strong, lyrically it still needs a lot of work, or complete rewrite.

So we are putting that track on the back burner for a while and promoted a track from EP3 to EP2. This is currently in very basic form, so a mad rush will now ensue to get it recorded.

Having taken three weeks off, for the world cup, it is really nice to be able to get back into recording mode again. Bar the odd time I've picked up my guitar, over the last week or so, I've been really itching to get back to it.

I did plug everything back in yesterday before the England match, and recorded a new idea for a song. We shall see how that progresses.

From E's blog, he has had his first attempt at actually driving a train. Cool....

Right back to the grindstone....
