[Jason Halbert] 9:23 pm: definitely music ... wanted to play for duran duran, but nick rhodes is still alive, so here iam ... [Mego] 9:24 pm: maybe nick will check into rehab and you can replace him
[Cory Churko] 9:24 pm: ha ha we recorded on vinyl back in those days and i don't own a turntable anymore. You'd laugh though. i was12- 18 years old in those days [Jason Halbert] 9:25 pm: man, with this lag, this is like when i used to talk with my grandmother in england when i was a kid ... [Mego] 9:25 pm: even though you were 12..you probably still played a better guitar than i ever will [Mego] 9:26 pm: haha
[Mego] 9:26 pm: how old were you all when you picked up your first instrument [Cory Churko] 9:26 pm: well everybody starts somewhere and I sucked in the beginning [Cory Churko] 9:26 pm: my mom used to hold her breath when i'd take a solo that it would sound like something musical lol [Jason Halbert] 9:27 pm: i started piano at 6 ... wanted to learn guitar, and my mom said she would buy me one if i learned piano first ... she lied [Cory Churko] 9:27 pm: I was 5 when i started classical piano lessons, 9 when i started guitar and 16 when i started fiddle [aben] 9:27 pm: my dad was in a touring band when i was born, so i cant remember NOT having some sort of instrument in my hand.... [aben] 9:28 pm: got my first guitar of MY OWN when i was 7 [Mego] 9:28 pm: cory..are those the only 3 instruments you play? [Cory Churko] 9:28 pm: I think Jason should play some guitar on the next tour [aben] 9:28 pm: i agree [Jason Halbert] 9:28 pm: hey, don't give away all the secrets of the next tour [aben] 9:28 pm: i want to play more bongos [Cory Churko] 9:28 pm: well the other instruments i play are derivatives of those: like mandolin, bass guitar etc [aben] 9:29 pm: naked

[aben] 9:30 pm: :fr: [Mego] 9:30 pm: snappy1010 has a question [aben] 9:31 pm: hurry, before we find more flags
[Mego] 9:31 pm: "Be Still and Sober, as well as many other on My December, have such beautiful accompaniment, and I was wondering how you put it all together and made it into such an amazing song? What kind of process did you have to go through to get it the way it is--like how many times did it take to finally get it right, or was it always meant to be the way it is?"
[Cory Churko] 9:32 pm: well when i wrote this song...
[Cory Churko] 9:32 pm: oh wait a minute.....I didn't [Jason Halbert] 9:32 pm: both be still and sober are pretty much the way they were when aben wrote the demos ...
[Jason Halbert] 9:33 pm: aben sent kelly the track with just him on gtr, piano, and a loop for be still, and she wrote the song over it in garage band the way it is now, and then we just re-recorded her vocal in the studio and added a few elements ... [aben] 9:33 pm: Sober was written and given to Kelly the same time Irvine was....
[Jason Halbert] 9:34 pm: oh, and i played the timpanis on sober [Jason Halbert] 9:34 pm: just sayin ... [aben] 9:34 pm: during the summer tour, KC and a few of us were into Patty Griffin and Ray LaMontagne...
[Mego] 9:34 pm: timpanis? explain a little bit?
[aben] 9:34 pm: so i just kinda had those artist in mind when i wrote them and sent them to KC [Jason Halbert] 9:35 pm: they start on the first chorus of sober ... big low sounding drum stuff ... [Mego] 9:35 pm: yeah i remember she did a cover of one of ray's songs on the tour [aben] 9:35 pm: yup
[Jason Halbert] 9:36 pm: so, next? [Mego] 9:36 pm: which song do you guys like the most to play on stage?
[Jason Halbert] 9:36 pm: right now for me it's how i feel ... [Cory Churko] 9:36 pm: well it's different for me every tour cuz my parts have changed on every tour [aben] 9:36 pm: Be Still was tracked on Christmas Day a couple of years ago...originally titled "Sooner Or Later"...we were in Austin demoing vocals on Maybe and i played it for her on piano and she wanted to do something with it.......
