The fourth part to “clouds and sun” ended up being a short transition between parts 2 & 3. Now I don’t have to worry about lengthening this thing too much.
I’ll probably spend the next few days ironing out a few chord voicings and then I’ll call this one good. I’m packaging up a few more new songs to send out to the rhythm section to keep this project on target for a 2011 release. I’m trying to keep the bass and drum parts open for some interpretation to keep it interesting for the people involved, but that gets a little tricky when the songs wrap around some strange time signatures and chords.
… and then of course there are the vocals to consider.
