(Wherein The Lovespies discover that their chats about the songs should probably be recorded, too.)
Guitar Player/Producer: Can we talk about the arrangement for So Soon?
Singer/Writer: What do you want to know? I’m kind of busy.
(They briefly talk about the first part of the song.)
SW: Can you just make it slow and dreamy? Just do whatever arrangement you want.
[A couple of weeks later.]
GP: Ok, I’ve finished all the guitars and I need you to do the scratch vocal.
SW: I’m ready.
(They start recording the vocals and get to the end of the instrumental chorus.)
SW: Wait. Why does it do that part once and not three times like we do it live?
GP: I thought we were going to do it the slow way we used to do it.
SW: Yeah, but we were going to leave in that new part.
GP: Why didn’t you tell me this when I wanted to talk to you about the arrangement?
SW: You didn’t ask me about that part. You just asked me about the first part.
GP: But I wanted to talk to you about the arrangement and you were too busy. You said to do it however I wanted to.
SW: But I didn’t mean to leave out that part.
GP: I have to re-record the guitars.
[A little while later.]
*Laughing* Julie, that’s hilarious. Totally the way discussions between my hubby and I often go.
Keep up the good work!
Oh man, now you have to find a time the planes aren’t overhead and Bella isn’t underfoot!
