The Narrow Side Free Election Day Demo from Danny Hauger
On Election Day, 2014, not being able to vote because I just moved and apparently the registration deadline in Contra Costa County was October 20th, which would have been nice to know ahead of time - - - -but i digress, before I even get started. So on Election Day I sat down with my guitar to vote with a new demo. I know, doesn't make much sense.
My new Fender acoustic electric guitar (T Bucket) and I arranged our first song recording together. A tender moment for sure, love the look of this new guitar by the way...
I sat down with a chord progression in mind before i picked up the guitar. This is maybe the only time I have ever pre-conceived of a sound before strumming it out. It led to a pretty quick rhythm recording, maybe two takes.
Then I added in some lead guitar, stayed acoustic, and stayed unprocessed. No pre-amp, just a live microphone recording the room. What came out was a nearly complete instrumental work. But I felt like applying some songwriting to it and began some lyrics which were completed with concept in mind in about 20 minutes.
I liked the sound and feel a lot, similar to other songs from the Danny Hauger archives, but different enough to add to the track listing for the upcoming album.

My career search continues, teaching as a sub a few days a week, writing freelance daily! Lots of Fiverr orders lately also! I think it will be a great time of transition as I coach, teach, write, record, and search for that next opportunity.
