Sh’ma Take Seven

Thursday, 17 July 2008

I know that there are musicians who talk about nailing a song in one take.

I am not one of them.

When the engineer announced “Sh’ma take 7,” I had this wild vision of Moses on Sinai with God’s bellowing voice;

“Sh’ma take 7.”

Which got me thinking. We have an unlimited number of “takes.”. That’s what the High Holidays are. Another take. Another chance to do it right. To fine-tune. To do it better the next time.

We got the Sh’ma on that 7th take. And laid down the tracks for five other pieces.

And now it’s time for bed…

    Thanks! We head back in this week. 5 of the 6 songs we recorded are great. 1 needs to be redone. That leaves 1 + 5 more songs for a total of 6 that we are slated to do on Thursday night.
