Session with Brad at Topcat Studios

Monday 13 February

Booked in for a session with Brad at Topcat today. We worked on two songs, The Sword in the Stone and Sweet Lady Life.

For The Sword in the Stone I added some vocal harmonies as well as a number of additional guitar lines in the harmonic bed underneath the two verses. These are intended to combine with the vocals and vocal harmonies using very medieval sounding perfect 4ths and 5th's. The result is a Celtic sounding piece which gives weight to the lyric. Here's a quick excerpt:

For the song, Sweet Lady Life - a ballad in the style of Simon and Garfunkel's Scarborough Fair - I added some call and response style backing harmonies to the choruses which are not yet finished.
