Our good friends Amy and Chris from America are visiting us, and they got caught up in the typhoon and hunkered down with me, Yasuko and Megumi. Since we were stuck inside, Megumi thought it was a good idea to jam (as long as the power held out, hehe).
Megumi had been working on a song that she felt wasn't really suited for her voice, so she asked Amy if she would sing on it. Chris chipped in on the harmony part.
Megumi is playing a Fender Stratocaster going into a Caline Pure Sky pedal. That goes into the DAW (Presonus Studio One) and the bx_bassdude amp sim through a Presonus Audiobox USB96 interface. Yasuko is playing a Yamaha RBX260 bass that goes into the bx_bassdude amp sim as well.
Megumi wrote the music, but the lyrics are from a Christina Rossetti poem, Song (When I am Dead, My Dearest). Megumi started getting into the works of Christina Rossetti when she took a class on 19th century English Literature and learned about the Pre-Rafaelites.
