Best session yet. E-bow + soprano saxes for Song Five. Finally hearing this.
Yesterday morning’s four hour recording session went well. I got the 12-string take for Song Five — likely the first material for Album Four that I will actually be keeping.
I am very happy with it, at the moment, and am looking forward to building the song out next weekend.
I’m going to switch to the 12-string for all of the acoustic songs on the record. I’ve been struggling with the Martin sounding thin as the lead instrument on these songs. Just picked up the 12-string and tried playing a few of the songs and it’s so much better.
I recorded basically nothing this weekend.
Going back to recording in 44.1 after hitting a number of execution roadblocks with 88. Also, keep trying to remind myself that you can’t fucking hear the difference, anyway. Better that I get the album recorded.
I also think I’ll be mostly redoing Song Four. Something about how I’m recording the percussion is off. I might need to try recording it out on the roof. The room may be affecting the sound too much and keeping it from feeling real.
I also plan to start Song Five, this week, in accordance to The Master Plan or Whatever.
