Rock and/or roll

Day 3 has gone very well; we were able to work much more quickly than we expected. "'Tis So Sweet," "Jesus, What A Friend For Sinners," and "Come Ye Sinners" (video) are almost done, and a failed attempt began on the only new song (i.e. never been recorded before, not traditional melody) on the EP, "All I Owe." I say "failed," but it gave us direction on where to go with it tomorrow morning.

Alice made poppyseed chicken for lunch, which was delicious. She got up early this morning while I was still sleeping and prepared it. She is such a gift. Before we got back to work, we watched portions of the Wisdom Teeth episode of Dr. Katz (also known in some circles as the "jetpack" episode). Sides were split, and a good time was had by all.

We will probably start recording vocals tomorrow-- eek! Well, it had to happen sometime. I'm sure that Cason and Andrew will help coach me towards something decent. They are a joy to work with and their musical gifts seem effortless. I told them today that their time with Malcolm Burn (who produced their final two records when they were in The Normals) was more of an education than any of my friends got in college. Though they haven't studied music formally, they study music every day in ways that can't be taught at school.

Sounds really exciting! Thanks for keeping us updated, Matthew. I can't wait to hear the finished product. Oh, and come to Florida.

Hey Matthew - I am really enjoying reading the blog. The video clips and photos are especially cool...keep 'em coming! I can't wait to hear the finished product. I've practically worn out my IG cds; I need some more musical hymn-y goodnes.
