MARGARET wakes me up to tell me I have a Zoom session in the diary that starts in a minute or two.
Jeez – not only have I slept in, but I totally forgot about the Feldenkais session I’m taking part in courtesy of the MU (Musicians’ Union). I throw my clothes on and get online. The one-hour session is interesting but I guess I might need a few more sessions to get my head round it. This is the first in a series of a dozen or so weekly sessions.
After a late breakfast I get soem routine stuff out the way then hit te studio – I got a request last night to pull together an acoustic, Tom Waits-style version of Bon Jovi’s Wanted (Dead or Alive)…this follows the Scottish sea-shanty version of the same song I recorded for The Deadliest Catch last year. They need the finished audio Monday morning. We’ll see if I can get something together and bee in te running.
It’s not easy as (a) I don’t really know the song and (b) I can’t get my sea shanty version out my head.
I take a break and go for a quick walk, dropping into the village shop to see if they need any West Highland Way Gifts’ stock replenished. They do. I also drop Betty’s paper off and go for a wander in the last of the light.
Back in the studio I get engrossed in my assignment until Margaret pulls up outside int he car – we need to take the old broken down sofa to the dump. Our ‘appointment’ (yup, we need to book a slot at the dump in Balfron!) is 7.50pm.
