Recording Diary: Day 7 – “Idiot Take”

Gee we were so much more PUMPED today than yesterday. I dunno what it was about yesterday. We got a lot done, but the vibe wasn’t as pumping as last week. Today we were back on track. We smashed it!   Dirty Harmonica: I kicked off with some harmonica parts for two bluesy tracks. That […]

Recording Diary: Day 6 – Testing…. one….two

I found it really hard to get into the zone today. It was such a SMASHING week last week. I was so pumped up. Then had a terrific weekend off with loved ones. But today I struggled to get my momentum up again after taking a break. It feels strange, as a muso, to work […]

Recording Diary: Day 5 – Too much fun….? Too much diversity….?

Day 5, another wicked day in the studio. Producer extraordinaire, Sean Carey and I started with a 10 minute long warm and fuzzy. I sat in the recording booth tuning my geetar, he sat in the cockpit, and through the headphone/mic we transferred our warm and fuzzy feelings to kick us off for the day. […]

Recording Diary: Day 4 – Acoustic Guitar & Bass

Every day in the studio is huge. And every night I struggle to sleep with the excitement of what the next day may bring. Today it was just Sean and I in the studio. We took it in turns. I’d play a few guitar tracks for recording. Then I’d take a break and he’d lay […]

Recording Diary: Day 2 – Guides & Drums

Super pumped, and ready, despite being before midday, I laid down the vocal and guitar guide tracks for the last 2 of 12 tracks. I was hoping to play “The Finish Line” on my Gold Tone Resonator for its particular sound, but it hasn’t appeared to have survived the trip from Melbourne, and seems to […]

Recording Diary: Day 1 – Guide Tracks

I couldn’t sleep last night for the excitement and anticipation of recording. My songs are like seeds…. And a producer is like water and nourishment for the seeds to grow and flourish. I have an idea of where I want some songs to go. But I like the mystery and anticipation of bringing them into […]

It’s been 4 months since I “finished” making Ann-Marie. But there have been a few things missing. 1)      the pickup & preamp 2)      the strap pin 3)      a scratch plate

A Banjo of Fresh Air

I bought a banjo! I have a love for tinkering on new/different instruments. Something about learning new instruments is inspiring. You get a new sound to play with.

A nice post

Day 25: Sanding, Ironing, Sanding

The other kids in class warned me about the “all day sanding” day. Today was that day. My guitar is a point now, where I need to sand out all the markings, blemishes, lumps and bumps, and prepare the guitar to be oiled. So I spent most of the day sanding. Sanding and sanding. Much […]
