Recorded a simple version of ‘Jellyfish‘ with Kevin Dippold (Smashing Pumpkins) today. I recorded the vocals and acoustic guitar simultaneously in one take, no click track, and then multi-tracked three cello tracks, two violas and two violins.
The melody and chords are the same, but… the lyrics are 100% different. It’s a protest song called ‘Reloveution‘ and was inspired by Occupy LA. I shall be releasing it very soon as a $1 downloadable MP3, with all of the cash going to support Occupy LA.
The final version of Jellyfish will be very different in terms of lyrics and vocal delivery, but also it will be very different in terms of the strings… VERY different.
I have a BIG strings plan in the works…
