zOMG It’s not crap!

So I managed to finally finish up another Silent Hill 2 cover song, this time it’s Theme of Laura, or probably Laura’s Theme if the title was better translated. I’ve always suspected something about the translation crew over at that studio.

Anyway, it’s a kind of bluesy rock thing but I couldn’t keep myself from metaling up a few parts here and there, and the Satriani in me forced me into doing a few harmonic bar dips. But hey, whatcha gonna do?

There’s still a few mix problems with the rhythm guitars that I have to drag out with EQ probably, but frankly if I spend much more time with it, I’ll get bored with it.

I was going to just sit on it but then I remembered Mischa wanted to hear some of what I’m working on, so I kinda picked this one at random.

Oh, you wanna hear it? Okay, here it go.

Inspiration is a fickle mistress

I swear I’d love to get, like, a map of my creative gland or something. It’s getting to the point where it’s impossible to predict when I’m going to get struck with some creative urge and waste two days straight working on something.

I’ve been banging out songs in Sonar 4 like nobody’s business lately. Can’t figure out what’s come over me. I’m unsurprisingly not too impressed with what I’ve got but I leave it up to the rest of my band to put the awesome in.

Sure wish I could direct this energy. But honestly I’m mostly just grateful for not being all dried up and talentless like I usually am.

Oh and this week my band’s name is Tactical Escape Artist. Love to see what we get for T-Shirts.
