On the last week of term leading up to Christmas we had a gig at the Archery centre on Seaside Road in Eastbourne. During this performance my guitar amp definitely needed to be turned up. Although I could hear my guitar, in the recording it can’t be heard at all. Overall Supersonic was fairly decent in comparison to Dakota . As different members of the group had to rearrange themselves to get prepared for Dakota it did seem quite unorganised on stage between Supersonic and Dakota. I don’t think this really was anyone’s fault as we hadn’t spent much time making a smooth transition. The second performance didn’t go quite to plan down to some technical issues for the drummer and tuning problems for the lead guitarist . The drummer was unable to hear much of what was being played through his headphones.
In the session on Wednesday I downloaded a clip of the film Road To Perdition so I could start on ideas for the backing track. So far I have a rain loop, a piano section and also a cello over the top of the piano.
