Revisiting track six, Matt had Jordan play the whole song through with four different guitar and amp combinations in order to get the morphing dynamic of the tone. We worked long and hard on getting the right drum sound for this, or as close as we could get to live drumming via Reason, anyhow. The middle section also posed a challenge, as it was originally was a free time, descending tempo line played on a much softer guitar. The flow of the song seemed to get washy at that point, so Matt had Jordan try playing it at the tempo of the rest of the song, and Jordan nailed it one take. Matt imported Melissa's sheet music from the violin parts for the earlier incarnation of the track and had a synth play the line in the second half of the song. The song was recorded in Shrewsbury PA in 2002 and in Columbia, PA in 2003.
