Is It Safe To Gnaw Through The Straps Now?

Writing commences !!!

The song we were working on last night has taken great steps forward tonight. I've expanded on the very simple patterns from last night to a more expansive, sinuous sort of sound. I'm going to work with some echo this week to give it an even larger ambience.

Originally the next CD was going to be in DADGAD, but the songs keep dictating different directions. So far DADGAD, Open C (CGCGCE) and Standard. It's going to be a bit of a logistical nightmare onstage, but I'll cope.

So, this means 2 new songs basically done, they just need to be arranged completely (one needs a couple of lyrical tweaks, but not much) and two more that are almost done. I'm hoping for three new songs at the Ritual show next month, maybe 4, maybe even more if things keep going like this.

We are basically writing two new CDs. One dealing with dark places and strange sounds and the other with young pirates in love. Yeah, a bit far apart.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.
