The solo deal can be fun. I just recorded a ~45 second demo last night that I'm in the process of expanding into a full song. I have the intro and what will be the chorus written, and a chord progression for the verses, but I still need to do some major drum program tweaking, writing a melody line, and picking the most appropriate sounds, which will take me the most time (mostly because I'm extremely picky about what sounds I use). I'm also starting a more acoustic band with the girl in our worship band. We both just graduated. She's interning with our group, and I'm her assistant. I'm gonna be teaching her guitar later on (she's gotta do the actually playing, but I'm teaching her the theoretical stuff, like with blues and such). I'm also tryin' to get a buddy to play violin in the band. Just depends.
This is our band (you can't see our djembe player, who graduated and sadly will not be playing with us this year).
