February 26, 2007:

Today I finished the DVD mixes for  “I’m Becoming” and “Salamanders In the Sun.”
I like it a lot, a real lot. It’s very sweet.

OK Vai, you can relax now.

I was trying to find another version of these two pieces for the CD but I don’t like anything that I found nearly as much as I like the DVD recording.

So maybe the DVD and CD will be the same take, with the exception of a different solo in “Salamanders.”

I’ll put on my audio goggles and go deep sea disk fishing tomorrow to see if I can find another solo for the CD version of “Salamanders.” Maybe I’ll unearth a morsel of pearl, or perhaps some whale food.
Which would I prefer???
