The thing is though that the lead parts for each section were written within two days of each other, in the first week of writing the song. But, like I said, I've been working on and off on this piece for 6 months. So, what the hell?
What happened is that it just sounded bad and I couldn't figure out what. I tried adding all sorts of different sounds, but it just felt empty. So for the last 3-4 months I've just been coming back to the same song and doing basically nothing.
What changed is that I fiddling on my bass and came up with an awesome bass riff, and I instantly knew it would fit in Part II. This is the first time I've recorded my own playing into a song, and I think it came out pretty well - although the very last bass riff (5:59) took for fucking ever to get it clean enough to record. Tapping on bass ftw!
