Creedence Clearwater Revival - Susie Q
So, despite some positive feedback (thank you!), I wasn’t all that pleased with yesterday’s song; it was honestly my worst performance of the entire project. I spent a large portion of the day doubting myself and stressing out because I knew I’d be at work until after 8pm, leaving me very little time for recording (and obviously no dinner, duh!). Adding to the stress was the fact that I had basically run out of songs on my to-do list so I truly had nothing prepared.
On the drive home I reminded myself of something I learned early in the project: know your strengths and your weaknesses. Adapting Eastern-influenced female voiced electronic music is clearly not my strength. What is? Blues-based rock and roll. That is what I do best. I effortlessly learned this and banged out all the parts in just 2 hours, and almost 1 hour of that was spent mixing.
Needless to say, I feel much better today.
