So I've laid rhythm guitar and vocal tracks for "Smile." I'm already quite happy with how it's coming, and I'm looking forward to laying the drums, keyboard, and everything else.

I think it'll sound phenomenally better than the EP, both sonically and content-wise.

My goal is to use no effects, other than mild compression and EQ. We'll see how that goes, but I think it's possible.
