Rehearsal 4/18/07

A typical working session with The Man So Cool, with a lot of focus paid to developing a few songs.

While we would generally hold a run-through practice before a show to go down the whole set list of songs a couple times and compare notes on any minor changes, most of our practices were more of this type. Working out the details of a given new song (or newly-introduced; 4 am, in this case, had been a regular feature in Heat Lorraine‘s heyday, for example) through iterative playthroughs was a common tactic; we’d start with a rough sketch of the song, play it over a few times, and then begin breaking it down into sections to work out each detail.

Some of these tracks feature, along with our actual playing, bits of discussion about what we might do with this or that portion; there’s more of that on record in my master recordings of the rehearsal, but I wanted to keep it to a minimum here.
