Last night at rehearsal the band got together to discuss any final tempo or arrangement changes in I, Awake before Kevin begins recording drum tracks. Because there are a few places where the time is fairly loose, we decided to have Chris and Steve do their respective guitar and keyboard parts in these areas before handing things over to Kevin. Chris and Steve hope to tackle that sometime this week.
We also spent a little more time working on Crippled by Fear with Steve. There are a lot of keyboard solos in this song, so it was good to bring Steve up to speed on the chord changes. We managed to get through it pretty much to the end, and Steve was able to solo to his heart’s content. It shouldn’t be long before this one’s performance ready.
