How the song came about
At the last songcraft meetup, before the session started, Jerron played the chords of the song on the piano. It sounded like a slow rock version, so I was inspired to come up with this version II.
The drum, piano, orchestral strings, and bass tracks were MIDI recordings (there are multiple tracks partly because I played the left-hand and right-hand piano pieces separately, since I can’t play the piano that well — also, I had to boost the piano track by duplicating them).
I recorded five separate vocal tracks, with three parts sung in harmony. This was to make up for my poor vocal talents. When combined, the vocals sound much nicer than what I can sing “live”.
I’ve not uploaded the “minus-one” track for this version. If anyone wants a go at it, email me.
