Late Night Video Blog – A Songwriter at Work!

By Jeff Copperthite:

So what the heck is the newest member doing up at 2:18 a.m. on a blog that just started?

No, i’m sober.

Yes, i’m nuts.

No seriously i’m really trying it out to make sure i’m able to post. If you’re reading this, then another mission accomplished.

I’ve been working in my not-so-aethestically pleasing studio on another track for Greenlight. I have a terrific audio picture of what I am doing for this song, and I got to mess around with guitars and a bit of vocals lastnight. My wife came down with me and snapped some photos of me at work. I’m posting the vocal picture on this entry because – well, it goes to show when we at FMP record our singing, we aren’t a bunch of stiffs in front of that microphone.

Singing and loving it

I’m not looking at a furnace and water heater – i’m envisioning the five fans bobbing their head in time with the bluesy beat.

Told you I was nuts.

And you can tell from the background – I can’t wait to get to that putting up corkboard ceiling and a nice non-load-bearing wall in front of said appliances.

But seriously I look forward to recording most of the guitars and vocals for this song soon, and I have another 3 songs to start recording. I am so excited that music is coming naturally to me again.

Also, Jim, Chris, and myself are already plotting “Jamnation 2: the search for more listeners.”

Ok fine, we’ll probably just stick with “Jamnation 2”. Why can’t album sequels work like movie sequels.

Hopefully soon I can procure a webcam and contribute to the laptop sessions. There are lots of cover songs that can use the FMP touch, and I want to do my “part” (come on musicians – laugh!)

Until then…

This is one in a series of acoustic cover songs, original music, and free mp3 downloads here on the Laptop Sessions Music Video Blog.
