I got the rate card done yesterday. Today it’s time to start gathering the troops and recalling the goods from a previous deal that is not coming thru. I’ll be on the phone bit to accomplish all that.
I also have to tweak on a mix that I was doing last night for a new song that will be going to a project heading to Universal Records. I’m getting everything as ready as I can so that I can drop the drum tracks in tomorrow.
Later today I’ll be heading to a little Apple function at a local computer music retailer. Why? I like to learn the software based on how others tend to use it. The guy who is demonstrating it is probably hands down the greatest guru for Logic that there is on the planet. Always something good to learn from someone who knows more than you. I like that.
Because I’m thinking about learning I’m going to dip into the archives of an artist that helped to propel rock n roll to the American masses. That’s right the sounds you’re hearing come from the famous Buddy Holly. I have no idea if he actually wrote this song, but if the Internet is correct, then yes Buddy did write this short little ditty.
It’s very much got a Buddy Holly style arrangement. Though I will the first time I heard the song, the strange sound jumping from the left speaker made me think there was something wrong with the recording until I realized it was muted guitar being raked on the strings. That’s Buddy, using sounds to create an effect while keeping the arrangement fairly simple.
If you’re not familiar with Buddy, it’s time to get so. So go buy his tunes.
