I’m very happy to say that the pre-prod arrangements for both ‘Familiar girl’ & ‘Chameleon’ are almost done!
For those who don’t know the terms:
'Arrangement' means adding all the instruments & riffs surrounding the main chords.
'Pre-prod' means the ‘draft’ version of the song before the recoding of the real instruments.
For the past few days, I’ve been working on improving structure of the song. Although I’ve already worked on this at the songwriting stage (guitar, voice only), it seems that after the arrangement are added in, it needs a little revisiting.
Most pop songs have the typical structure of verse /chorus , but the beauty of producing your own music is that you can venture out of this and compose a sung poem if you want.
So, I have been shuffling the parts around until I get the right vibe from one to the next. It seems that things are getting ready for recording of real instruments soon!
