Chillorking. Is there such an urban word yet? If not, maybe it’s time for it.
Chillorking: That act of being chill while working.
That’s my m.o. for today. I got up late after being up rather late recording and tweaking guitar tones for project has been a long time in the finishing. Really it was written and recorded about 6 months ago. I’ve been waiting on the partner to get his part done and to wait on making sure we’re getting the right guitar tones. He’s finally getting his part finished and came over to talk about tones yesterday. Final progress!
I’m also going to be watching some flicks and spending time with the dog and then recording more parts for another song I co-wrote a little while back. It needed better guitar sounds and some tighter playing in the bass. Once I have all that, I will get live drums done on it rather than going with the programmed drums I’ve already done.
What do you do for Chillorking?
I’m wondering if it’s a little greasy… My day is setting itself up to be a little greasy. Which makes me think it’s a good idea to run with a guitarist who is known for some serious guitar antics, Steve Vai. I’ve met Mr. Vai a few times at various places. He’s a kind and cool guy. He’s a great guitar player to boot. The last time I ran into him was at a rehearsal for a Zappa thing. I noticed that we both tend to use the same type of warmup finger exercises. It’s always fun to watch how other guitar players you admire play.
This song has a really cool uptempo vibe going on. It’s not a faint at heart kind of thing. It’s a vehicle of flash, no doubt about it. I will say it reminds me of his Flexible stuff like The Attitude Song. All kinds of guitar stuff going on and it’s roaring at a zillion notes a second. It’s the kind of song that guitar players in general love to love or hate.
