Jam Session #9
I’ve been sitting on this Jam Session for a while now. I recorded it on September 19th, so it’s been almost 3 weeks. Normally I post these within a few days (sometimes even a few hours) of recording them. When that happens, I can explain what I was thinking while jamming out or whatever. This time though, I don’t even remember. I do like how it sounds because it’s kind of like, dance-metal or something. What this recording does spur is a problem I find myself running into every so often: not remembering how to play my own songs. There are definitely a few guitar parts on the Punk Rebel Renegade album that I don’t remember how to play, but that topic can be saved for another day.
Anyway, yeah, I like this song. I’ve been trying to transcribe the guitar parts to MIDI for a lot of these Jam Sessions for 2 reasons. First, it makes it sound more like how it would sound in a fully-finished song, so it’s nicer to listen to or whatever. Second, and possibly more importantly, it prevents me from forgetting how to play the guitar part. The bassline isn’t the exact same pattern as the guitar, but it follows the same notes and general progression.
As Robby Suavé public catalog of music grows, the more I can get a grasp of what makes my good songs sound good and what makes the not-so-good ones not-so-good. I think this recording shows that. The dance beat, the poppy bassline, and the slightly erratic endings to a few of the measures make for a more interesting song, I think. What do you think of it?
