I am going to try this this year.

For two reasons:

I want to play some stuff.

I know the moment I commit to something I want to do, work will come flying in the door and interrupt this project. LOL.

So, how have your experiences been doing the RPM challenge?

I did it last year, and am glad you reminded me this year.

I never followed up after posting, so I've no other comment than to say it was cool to have an explicable reason for indulging my obsession with writing/recording.

I did it once, with a friend, in like 2008 or something. It was a good exercise for me at the time, to learn to just get shit down & done and not obsess over details like I am prone to doing.

Great fun. Highly recommend it, especially for Nick's reasons. The work must flow. Wink

Good for you! Did if for three years under the name "Mile Long Post-It" (2008-2010, I think) and had a blast! Each year brought different learnings, was very worth doing, and a few of those songs are still on my "A" list. Can't do it this year for a variety of reasons, but kinda feel like the kid staying home while others go off to summer camp. Good luck and enjoy!

Well we are up and running!!!

I already picked the 9 songs (over 35 minutes, barely)

And will spend time recording them this entire month.

Wish me luck.

Aiight, as of Sunday I have 10 choons totaling around 40 minutes.

I'm going to listen a few more times, probably post 'em this weekend.

How's all y'all's progress?

It's been slow going.

I got sick with some but the kids brought home. Lovely.

Back on the saddle today and hopefully until the end of the month.

Yeah, that time of year for colds, etc. I was so sick at the end of January I didn't play or write or record for almost two weeks, what is a lot for me.

Altho' I must say, I sometimes like the vocals I get with the hoarseness, and I often leave throat clears and coughs in because, well, I like 'em.

One of the biggest issues with being sick, I've found, is my hearing can change some.

Also, sneezing on the 'pooter monitor can be gross. Twisted Evil

Anywhat, feel better and get to work!

Looking forward to listening to them. I haven't RPM'd in many years.

Well,
I am definitely not going to make the deadline.

But, I am going to finish the album... perhaps in the middle of March.

I'll keep you posted.
