Blog » Part Writing for The Morningstar EP: As Life Passes You On and Morningstar, Son Of The Dawn

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

As you can see from Joey’s post, we got a lot done today.  I finished the drum part for track four (and if anyone is wondering how I do that, I sit in bed with my computer on my lap) and then finished writing the chords and drums for track two (the first track written by […]

The Morningstar [EP] by The Apache Revolver Yah, yah, metal bros, Today I finished “As Life Passes You On.” Took me a decent chunk of time getting Carl’s arpeggios sorted out, but they actually got easier as it gets nearer to the end of the song. They turn into pretty basic minor arpeggio shapes and […]

Well, so…I said that I was going to finish the guitars today, and I came damn close (It’s all those FUCKING ARPEGGIOS CARL WROTE, DAMN YOU CARL, DAMN YOU ALL TO HELLLLLLL! METALLLLL!). But, mostly I was focused on the mix. For me, it’s very difficult to record if the mix sounds like butt. Reason […]

Yo, yo, yo… So, I don’t have too much to say. I just figured I’d keep up with posting all the progress, but I have almost all of the guitars recorded for “As Live Passes You On.” It was a little disheartening, ’cause the mix didn’t fit perfectly initially. It’s going to need some work. […]

Alright, alright, alright… It’s 11:20PM, and I’m laying in bed writing this post. My brain is pretty much fried (in the least drug-induced way). Before I explain what was accomplished, I figured I’d better give you a bit of an update on The Morningstar EP track listing. The track that I’ve been working on a […]

The Morningstar [EP] by The Apache Revolver Ey All, Today I’ve officially finished recording “How You Have Fallen.” In case you were STILL wondering, my guitar strings arrived on Saturday…just in time (sarcasm). I’m always so exhausted after recording (mentally), so I never really feel like these blog posts contain any real, interesting material. But, […]

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Wrote the drum parts for How You Have Fallen, and I think they’re metal as fuck. MEEETTAAAAALLLLL. Also important to note, I found my new favorite metal album of all time on Monday, but I’m going to keep the details out of it because first I have to force Joey to rock out to it […]

Day 3, guys…wish I had something more important to say, but today pretty much went according to plan. (In case you were wondering, no, my guitar strings still haven’t arrived; which makes me happy I decided to Frankenstein a few old sets together yesterday and get started recording.) I finished recording all of the lead […]

So…let me tell you a story about Guitar Center an unnamed online music store. More specifically, let me tell you about how AMAZINGLY FAST they ship shit from their online store. Seriously. I ordered a fuck ton of guitar strings (D’addarios for life…unless some other brand wants to give me free strings) from them last […]
