Band Photo Weekend

This weekend was pretty good for Lunar Tides! We did our stream on Saturday, and aside from a few hecklers it went really well. The funny thing about playing live is that you don’t always hear things the way they’re coming through for everyone else. I thought I was off the whole time, and Lucas thought he was off pitch on his singing. We watched the past broadcast afterward, and lo and behold we actually did pretty damn good! My bass was a little louder than necessary, but who doesn’t love a good loud bass? πŸ˜‰

We have three new riff ideas in the works, so that’s really exciting for us. We’d kind of been stuck in a rut with writing new material, but it seems that we’ve broken through the wall finally! Lucas and Randy were jamming on the new one for the stream since I didn’t know how to play it. We worked on it tonight, and slowly but surely I’m getting the hang of it!

We live right next to a radio tower, which is horrible when you’re trying to play live music! Randy’s amp will pick it up clear as day when we’re in between songs. Once we start to play you can’t hear it, but for those moments in between, you’re dancing to whatever’s playing on Mike FM! We decided to do a little bit of engineering, and grounded his amp with our own copper wiring!

That’s the grounding work to the right of the amp. So far it’s been working, you could hardly hear the radio this weekend! That was really nice, and we’re hoping it continues to work! All in all, it was a good weekend of practicing and structuring our newer songs. I hope everyone has a great week!

    • πŸ˜€ Thank you!! I’m so glad you enjoy the band posts. It worked out really well for us that Randy has been involved with bands his whole life. He had given up on it kind of before we moved down here, but luckily had kept all the lighting and sound monitors/amps!
