How I Did the "Code"

[Taken from mutuni.com.]

I recorded the demo in F, but when I went to rerecord the song, I tried two new options: Lower the key to A like Elvis' "Blue Suede Shoes," or slightly lower to Eb like "Jailhouse Rock." The key of A didn't work. I liked how my horrible, horrible Elvis-Meatloaf impression sounded in Eb, so I was going to rerecord all the other instruments in Eb. Then I listened to the F demo again, and I really liked how the guitar sounded in F, so I just bumped up the Eb vocal to F, and that was that.

In other words, producing music is complicated and satisfying.
