Greetings my pretties. Some updates.
I’ve finished tracking this group of new songs. That means we’re heading into the mix phase, which means they’ll be out sooner rather than later. Already thinking about the next batch. Someone asked me if playing all the instruments is a pain in the ass. YES. Yes it is. But it’s much easier than teaching someone the parts, then having them play it. It’s a matter of convenience, really.
Halfway through recording I started using a Neumann microphone. It’s a sound we’ve all heard a MILLION times before, and I can’t believe I didn’t use one before. What. A. Sound. Warm, sweet, musical. It’s my mic of choice for the rest of my life.
I’m trying to work up the nerve to talk my stylist into shortening my hair. I think I can rock a short cut for a while. And hey, unlike an arm…it’ll grow back.
I’m going to a wedding this weekend and I realized that I don’t have anything to wear. That sounds like a TV show, I know. But it’s true. I’m taking tomorrow off to go buy cool clothes. If I find anything I like I’ll post the results.
A couple of people have been asking about drum and guitar lessons. I’ll post some more of them to YouTube when I get a few minutes here and there. Anything in particular you’d like to see?
Here’s a cool picture I took this week:
