First rehearsal tonight with the full band and i am excited about the possibilities of what it will sound like.
I managed to secure the auditorium so the boys could get used to the venue and the sound that they will be faced with. I feel I am asking the guys to do a lot as they have all their own things to do out side, family life, their own music other bands etc. I just hope they know how much it means that they are taking the time to do this show for me.
Started off with Iron Maiden wasted years - . this went really good, a little rough but happy with the first version. I recorded this one for the video so it will be beside this post. this one will take care of its self. I was able to make good use of the vibrato, this is the main thing and ensuring i support my breathing, I'm confident il get this one done.
Firewoman - , the guys were unsure of this one, so had to shelf this one till next time.
Sweet child of mine - , the structure is there for that one but the start needs sorted and its speeds up a little, good start. This one just needs played and familiarity to ensure it goes smooth. I need to ensure i place the pitch and point my vocal towards the alveolar ridge. Im confident if i use the correct technique i can make a good go of this one.
Quicksand jesus - Again the boys hadn't looked at this one so I will need to pick it up at the next practice. I felt a little fed up that i couldn't get this one done as this is the big one for me, the most challenging, but I'm sure it will be sorted for the next practice.
Here i go again - This is sounding excellent, really pleased with the guys on this, Vocally i need to make more power in the octave sweeps to make it sound impressive. Il look into this the next time.
Nothing Else matters - Im doing a different structure to this song so it going to need a good bit of work, a little bit of the structure was done, but its really fast, so i will need to look at that closely over the next few weeks.
