The band had another good rehearsal on Monday, playing straight through I, Awake. While there were a few tweaks necessary, this one’s pretty much done now with no major areas to work out or arrange. We’ll probably spend a few more weeks banging through it so we can try out some possible different ideas before we set into the daunting task of recording it.
We also spent more time working on Social Engineering, and are making more progress through this song as well, as Steve becomes more familiar with the odd time changes throughout. Steve also made use of some samples from the original recording which will allow him to play using the exact same keyboard sounds as in the original.
