Today I worked out the full basic song arrangement for The Richest Man. I also finished up writing the main lyrics. Up until now, this song has only been played live singing with an acoustic guitar (Mr. Burns). Having the basic melody and chords recorded will give me something to build on. I have a long way to go, and solidifying the arrangement was the first step.
Acoustic guitars are final. Their natural sound compliments well the gritty compression on the bass. This guitar is called, Mr. Burns. I’ve continued to develop the sax solo and it has become super cool; stealing the bridge away from the background vocals. I’m currently developing the last guitar part, a bouncing electric sound that duplicates the acoustic guitar at times. The plan for the weekend is to start thumbing through my GoPro footage in order to develop a plan for this song’s video.
