Recorded in 2011 – improvised lyrics
I recorded the following track on August 8, 2011. It’s been over 6 years since I recorded this song! Crazy how quickly time goes by. This song doesn’t even have a name – except the title I gave it when I saved the recording “Jam8.6.11” – recorded using a beat from garage band, a uke, bass guitar and vocal overdubs.
I started with the beat, added the rhythm with the uke and then paired the bass track. After that – without knowing the words I just went for it. Totally improvised lyrics – which is usually my favorite way to record. There is something truly authentic about singing freestyle – at least in my opinion. Freestyle lyrics just flow – or they don’t! lol. Anyway – for purposes of my own amusement I’m posting Jam8.6.11 on reef.xyz – my personal blog.
