Love Journey 19/2/2016
One-off R&B song.
Started with an experimental drum beat played in on digital pads. As it seemed quite funky, added a Tamla-style Logic Pro Drummer track and one of the Motown tambourine loops. Later used the original beat as congas using the Garage Band latin kit. Funk-style rhythm guitar added. Lead guitar channeled Ernie Isley's playing from 3+3.
