House Sitter #8 – productive week

I’m house sitting for one more day, recording songs I’ve written over the last year. Wow! It’s been a great run. I’ve finished recording nine of my songs, and I’ll work on another this afternoon.  Addendum: Finished ten songs! Woo hoo! 🙂 My friends return from their cruise tomorrow. The house is in good order,Continue reading “House Sitter #8 – productive week”

House Sitter #7 – clock’s ticking

I’m house sitting for the next two days, recording songs I’ve written over the last year. Finished the very funky ‘Home’ this morning, just re-doing vocals and backing vocals for ‘Believe’.  Time’s running out, and I have this week’s uni work to look at. No long walks today (sorry, doggie). Have a great day 🙂

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. IContinue reading “House Sitter #6 – arranging awesomeness”

House Sitter #5 – walking daze

I’m house sitting for the next four days, recording songs I’ve written over the last year. Lots of dog walking today. As well as food shopping, clothes washing, dish washing (too many washings!). Clocked up over 10kms of walking (not washing). After dinner I’ll work on a new song called ‘Light the Way’. I’ve decidedContinue reading “House Sitter #5 – walking daze”

House Sitter #4 – out of the dumps

I’m house sitting for the next five days, recording songs I’ve written over the last year. Right. No depression today, I’ve got things to do. I revisited the songs I screwed up yesterday, saving one from evisceration. I rebuilt it with the motto “less is more”. Also finished the vocals on another track I startedContinue reading “House Sitter #4 – out of the dumps”

House Sitter #3 – dark dregs

I’m house sitting for the next six days, and recording some songs I’ve written over the past year. Aghhh! Woke up this morning terribly depressed (as I sometimes do) and demotivated (Why? When you suffer from depression it just happens). I couldn’t get out of bed until just before lunch. To top it off IContinue reading “House Sitter #3 – dark dregs”

House Sitter #2 – the 2nd song. Sort of…

I’m looking after a friend’s house in the city for the next seven days, and I’ve decided to record a number of songs I’ve written during the past year. After walking the dog this morning, my laptop (the one I use for recording which runs a normally very stable version of Windows XP) decided toContinue reading “House Sitter #2 – the 2nd song.

House Sitter #1.5 – 1st track awesomely completed, thank you

I’m looking after a friend’s house in the city for the next eight days, and I’ve decided to record a number of songs I’ve written during the past year. I love inner city loving! I’ve walked 10 kms today (I’m a fan of walking, especially trails and paths I haven’t walked before. Bit like life,Continue reading “House Sitter #1.5 – 1st track awesomely completed, thank you”

House Sitter #1 – recording is a dog’s life

I’m looking after a friend’s house in the city for the next eight days, and I’ve decided to record a number of songs I’ve written during the last year. After dropping my mate off at the train station, getting confused by his reverse stick shift (crazy foreign cars!), setting up my gear, playing with theContinue reading “House Sitter #1 – recording is a dog’s life”

House Sitting and the Musical Muse

Next week I’ll be looking after my friends’ house as they go on an overseas cruise. They live in the centre of town near the beach (tough break, huh?). I was planning to use the time to read, blog, do uni assignments and play Xbox, but then I had a great idea. I have aContinue reading “House Sitting and the Musical Muse”
