The D.E.A.L.

D-E-A-L

 

This was designed for a special friend of mine. She had to do a presentation for a job interview based on training new personnel in a college advising on how to deal with dissatisfied students. She told me she wanted to present playing cards with her acronym D.E.A.L., which I hope is self explanatory by looking at the card above.

Also, A Beat.

Working in Garageband lately to record, so I decided to work on creating a piece of music. I was listening to some Rick Ro$$ for track inspiration, decided that some heavy bass drums, horns, violins and church bells were the way to go. Have a listen.

What Up Y’all? (It’s A.B.)

In my boneheadedness, I believed I was recording into a SHURE SM-57 mic through a Digidesign MBox 2 Pro for the last few months. That was not the case, at all, I was recording into my computers built in mic. That’s ok for skype and taking notes, but, I’m trying to have vocals that start strong. So, I downloaded the driver for it and that changed things quite a bit. Anyway, now that I squared that away I laid out this track that I was performing as an opener, when I used to perform. So, here we go. It’s called, “What Up Y’all? (It’s A.B.)”I recorded a song called “Franklin Richards” over  the track by sTERRYo aka Soem aka TK Lawrence of Sight Beyond Light, the Dub Pistols and the Hardy Boys.  The track is lost to time, but hopefully when I repurposed the beat I created a timeless track.

I also came up with some artwork for it based on the “Keep Calm and Carry On.” posters that were really popular 3 years ago.
