House Sitter #6 – arranging awesomeness

I’m house sitting for the next three days, recording songs I’ve written over the last year.

Worked on ‘Light the Way’ last night and this morning (walked the dog, rang Mum and wished her a happy Mother’s Day – hey, I already got her a card and present). The song has turned out great. I added some distorted guitar and layered vocals to the chorus and it now kicks ass. 

Next, a stripped back folky acoustic number called ‘Believe’. I haven’t played this one much. I think I’ll add some piano and maybe orchestrate some strings for it. 

I often change the arrangement for a song when I record. I’m happy to say that most of the time the song ends up the better for it.

Have a great day 🙂
