Around 2:00, right after the straight solo part, there is a very faint, reverb-drowned electric guitar. If you ever listen to Dredg, it was thrown in using them as inspiration for that vast, deep sound it adds to the song.
I do think that I'm going to keep the first half of the bridge as a solo; it breaks the pattern most of my song structures fall into a bit better that way, and right now, one of my biggest concerns is making sure that no song makes you say, "Haven't I already heard this one?" I like the distant guitar in the second half because it leaves room for the vocals to come in, too. As the vocals for that bridge get ironed out, I know that they will also end up having a big influence on how that solo is going to sound -- whether it's clean, distorted, simple, or technical.
I'm currently working on lyrics and vocal melodies for this one. I've got a chorus I'm happy with and a half decent bridge, but the verse vocals are still giving me the slip. The next post will probably be an edit with some rough vocals on them once I get around to recording it. Unfortunately, that is probably going to take longer than I would like, seeing as I have about 80 essays being handed to me tomorrow.
Thanks for the post, Tiff! I'm glad you like it.
In other news, I bought a domain for what I plan to be the name of this project. I haven't done anything with the website yet, so don't waste your time heading over (I'll be sure to post when I do), but let me know what you think about the name.
Again, to get a better idea of the project, head over to the iLike link on your right.
