After hearing Simon’s new parts for Dark Moon I decided I could be getting on with some extra tracks too and put down the tremolo and wahwah guitar tracks, fully expecting to edit most of it out again. Still no Pete though.
Time: 23:01, Day: Saturday, hang on! 23:01?! Where did time go?!?!?! Thought I’d only been on Reaper for a few minutes! Well, I did a couple of takes of the chorus/main riff/bit in the middle type thing. Not sure if I’ve done a good enough job of it though as it’s all sounding a bit mushy. I think it’s in need of some good old 4 string bass on there to tighten things up and a good old mix down. I added a couple of bits of lead. Well, as much lead as I ever put down. Moved some bits around, messed with levels and panning, trying to give my bits a feeling of more space. The beginning and the end are sounding awesome! It’s like the good old days all over again!
Lyrics. Now, I seems to remember there not being many lyrics at all to the this song. From what I remember there was “Dark Moon rising, Dark moon is rising again, dark moon rising, dark moon is coming again, I see her fall, I see her falling to me, dark moon rising, dark moon rising again.”
Of course, I could be wrong. I wouldn’t mind writing some more over the end, maybe, maybe not. It’s sounding too good to spoil.
