I've Begun Single #5...But Will It Be What It Should Be?

I created the rhythm track for the first song of the fifth single in the BOK Single of the Month Series. I'd like to be able to make this a four track thing, but I'm wondering if I'll have the time. I more or less have the entire disc already made up in my head, but getting the sound from one's head onto tape is not always a piece of cake. This will be a very cool entry in the series if I can do it. If not, it'll still be cool, just not very cool.

"In the 1960s when the recording studio suddenly really took off as a tool, it was the kids from art school who knew how to use it, not the kids from music school. Music students were all stuck in the notion of music as performance, ephemeral. Whereas for art students, music as painting? They knew how to do that." -- Brian Eno

"Of course, these days everyone can have as many tracks and takes as they want. But unlimited choice doesn't make for good music in the studio. Limitations are what make great music." -- Matt Wallace

"I don't like recording studios - except my own, which is just a little room above the garage." -- Keith Jarrett
"The dream world of sleep and the dream world of music are not far apart. I often catch glimpses of one as I pass through a door to the other, like encountering a neighbor in the hallway going into the apartment next to one's own. In the recording studio, I would often lie down to nap and wake up with harmony parts fully formed in my mind, ready to be recorded. I think of music as dreaming in sound." -- Linda Ronstadt
