So this is the song my friends and I recorded a few weeks ago. Please note: It’s a folky demo, not a polished masterpiece. I played uke and accordion. I sang the low harmony part too, but it’s mixed pretty low.
The song was written by my neighbor Jeremy, and that’s him on lead vocals (and high harmony, and banjo). “Friend Not Forgotten” is the working title, but I think we all wish we had a better name for it. I’ve never much liked titles that don’t come straight from the lyrics.
Our next one was called “More Than Friends,” but we’ll be re-recording that one from scratch. In the studio we transposed it up a whole step, but Jeremy sounds better in the original key. And honestly, I’m happy to get another chance at it, my performance wasn’t my best. Then last Thursday we did one called “Miles On My Car.” I did much better on that one. We still need to add some harmony vocals to it though.
(Friends-locking for now, just until I get clearance from the other guys to share it more widely.)
