> At the risk of distracting you from the task at hand, how are you > recording the songs? plugging straight into the sound card on my pc (1/4 to mini adapter; don't even have a midi cable for the keyboard), using audacity. (can you say 'lo-fi' ?) I realized pretty much as soon as i decided to record them that there was no hope of doing anything that sounded professional, so these are pretty much scratch demoes so I can remember how the melodies go ;) Fortunately I know a guy in Placerville who owns a studio, and I have a band that seems to follow me like sheep, so i may actually record 'em for real. Four written, now; need to choose a key for the long meandering talking blues, and find a suitable substitute for uillean pipes to solo on the Enya-esque transition into it.
