Drums: BJ Robertson
Bass, Voice, Piano, & Synthesizers: John Eddy
This session is dedicated to the art of appreciation.
This was recorded like “Dedication”: BJ on Drums, me doing Bass, Voice, (and to try and make it more interesting, Piano). Then I went back & over-dubbed the Amazing Keyboards (Thanks Apple!!). No looper for the Bass and 97% of it is “live” with only some minor edits. We call it “Appreciation” because we we’re exhausted, it was roasting in the house, the energy fluctuation is consequently more dramatic (higher highs and lower lows); and since I’ve started practicing Buddhism I’ve learned that no matter how hard you try sometimes things just don’t go as optimally as you’d ideally intend for them to. That doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the struggle and more importantly, benefit others. It came out really well and is definitely one of my favorites! Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you like it!!
