Sylvia and I now have almost 35-hours in this song ("Calling All Humans"). Today, we wanted to "determine", "practice" and "record" the drum part. Since the Nature of "rhythms" is part of my personal core energy, this should be the easiest part of any song for me… but this song is a bit of a mystery.
The Track with most of the chords in it follows the patterns and accents of the Vocal Line. I knew the Vocal Line had some Triplets in it when we created it.
- A musical "Triplet" is when 3, evenly-timed notes are played within the duration of 2 notes of the same value. For example, 3 "8th notes" played within the Time it takes for 2 "8th notes" to play.
Other parts of the Vocal Line are syncopated — sung in-between the beats of the song.
This morning as we drove our car out of our driveway and waited to drive onto the main road, we saw a young deer. He or she was waiting on the lawn beside the main road. He wanted to cross but wasn't sure what to do. We then saw a car approach that area and were concerned that there might be a problem but the made it across just in Time.
Then, as we drove-out onto the main road, we looked at the deer walking into that next yard, just before the woods. There were 4 other deers standing there waiting for him. As we looked, and started to drive out, he stopped and turned to look at us. The feeling we had was that he hadn't seen vehicles before and was staring in wonder at our car. At that point, when he looked at us and we looked at him, he seemed like a "Human" boy… stuck in wonder at the strange sight.
They all seemed to be about "teenage" age and a few years younger.
A new cryptic message from Cobra:
