We had a great time writing in the studio last week! We came up with some cool ideas and even some full songs. It is all subject to change, but the goal was to write as much as possible and "lay it down" (no pun intended) so that we could remember it all. I think we came up with 45+ min of music. I don't know exactly but it was something around that. We would just come in and start jamming on an idea until it was together enough to track it.. Then we would come up with another idea and find a way to connect the two together. It was a really fun process. The guys are so talented and their ideas are great.
We recorded almost everything to a click track or a drum loop. Then when we were pretty much done on the last day, I got to record drums on a few of the ideas. Including the 20+ minute epic we wrote. It was really fun. I haven't played the drums in a while so it was a blast to get to do that again. I can't wait to see what comes of the stuff we wrote. It will probably be a while before we get to finish writing and release anything. Neal and Mike are going to be really busy with the Transatlantic tour so it will be hard to get together, but I'm sure we'll get it out before too long.
Here are some pics and a short video clip of us in the studio:
