Producing songs is hard work!

Hi viewers!

My passion project is to make a small EP with four songs.

The song titles are yet to be revealed! Average time – 3 mins per song.

Producing Equipment:
MacBook Pro 2012 OSX 11.9.0 (microphone for vocals and acoustic guitar; surprising very good quality)

Ashton Acoustic Guitar (no amp plug but great sound range)

Monterey (not sure about brand) Electric Guitar (best sound, contemporary, five tones on guitar)

Blackstar 40watts guitar amp (7 tones)

Garageband MacBook Version

Here are the steps I take to record songs:

  1. I make the backtracking first so that most of the work is done. I use my guitar for most of them and layer three tracks. I always have to spilt them and edit the tone and speed of the guitars. This is very time consuming I have taken 5 weeks on a single backtrack.
  2. I record claps and accents. They enhance the songs greatly. They help keep the beat and rhythm. The bass is the best.
  3. I then record the vocals. These have to be the main focus. They have to be pristine for viewers to like the content.

Poetry

Poetry is my personal favourite form of writing. It seems to be so pretty and beautiful. There’s no limits to the amounts of metaphors you can make when you think. It’s quite amazing hot beautiful our words can be. We just have to be careful to taste them before we spit them out.

I made these poems. I did my poems on a character from Paper Towns – John Green. I did three on events in the story. I really love this book. If you have some time, it is a must read 🙂 All of these poems are from Quentin’s perspective.

“Her name is Margo.”

I was so lucky

To live across the street

Of a goddess

That I adore

I lived there

For many years

Yearning for her love

But she was always out pulling pranks

That sly vixen

That night owl

She had mystery in her lungs

And mischief in her smile

And her blue eyes

Were my summer skies

“I need a favour, Quentin

I didn’t know whether it was a mirage or not

I couldn’t tell

But she was sitting in my room

With the light of the moon

And she was asking of a favour

It was a surprise

But I didn’t mind

Because I loved her so

But we spent all night 

Roaming the streets

And pranking all who seemed to miss karma

Then when they were done

She told him about how she never wanted to be found

In a paper town

“Paper Towns”

Suddenly she disappeared

She didn’t tell anybody about her escape

But Quentin knew she loved mysteries

So he kept his eyes open

For things she had left

A pin on an opened map 

In her room

He recalls

Her saying about a paper town

He wasn’t ready to let her go

So he went to find her

Down the highway with his friends

They try to find Margo
