In the summer, I posted that I was annoyed to notice that my new selection of demos would have 18 songs. That's just too many songs.
But I've decided to take "Your Strength of Will" off the record. The song's old and I look forward to releasing it, but none of my guitar takes from the Summer were good enough.
I hope to release it with nothing but a single guitar take and a vocal—no synthesizer, no drum machine, no bass—but it doesn't look like it's gonna' happen this time. It was the last guitar part I recorded, and I was worn-out.
However, it bugs me: will I ever have the chance to make the song exist in the future? Really, I've recorded this many songs because I'm totally freaked out that I might not have another chance to make a record. 17 tracks is still more than enough, but it's hard to let one go.
I know that many songs end-up as B-Sides and lost tracks, but I don't feel as if I have the time for that. It's just a set of demos. I can't act like these songs will ever see the light of day if I can't put them here.
