This week's rewind, Jam Session 111l (15:16; see original show notes), was a fun, disgustingly long, super-noisy bit of rock 'n roll. We had an unmanned guitar on a guitar stand, plugged in to an amp. My brother Jon played a guitar but also controlled foot pedals for the effects attached to his guitar and the unmanned guitar. I played the bass at times, and at other times I smacked the unmanned guitar to play a chord or two. There are no overdubs; all instruments were recorded at the same time. The drum beat was a bit reminiscent to Nine Inch Nails' "March of the Pigs" (but slower). Anyhow, take a listen:
We've challenged ourselves to, instead of creating Jam Sessions, create Recording Sessions next time around (in a couple of weeks). In other words, in place of quickly-created chord progressions and improvisations, we're going to take a bit more time and make some quickly-recorded -- yet full-realized -- songs. It will be quite the challenge for your Jon and Ryan, your Chord du Jour hosts! Can we do it?
