Ok, last thursday was the second rehearsel of my new band (the one that is unnamed at the moment). We played some of the riffs of the first time, and had a cosy chat. Then I started playing an old riff of mine, clean, no distortion. And the other two liked it pretty much. And the bassplayer picked it up perfectly. The drummer though had some sort of a problem… He could not find any sort of a rythm. It was no 4/4 or 6/4 or anything, but was weird, according to him. And the bassplayer started counting, while I was playing. He figured out that the riff was very easy, but the first note I play, should be an up-stroke. And then all the accents should be perfect on the count. I agreed, so the drummer was trying that. And still he couldn’t figure it out.
After an hour or so, I said I would record it, so he could figure it out at home. And I started playing an old punksong, wich I wrote during the time with The E.N.D. And instantly they joined playing, and the song is allmost finished… So that should be our first song, I guess. Sounds weird now I think about it. Next rehearsel with Bessemer Machine I should ask the others, if it’s ok to use it in the new band.
And every riff that is played afterwards were old riffs of mine, and they all are accepted here. But in The E.N.D./BleiFrei they were all burned down to the ground. I don’t care, I can use ‘em here now.
Let’s what next rehearsel is gonna bring us. I am going to do some cleaning up now.
