Recording Update

Recording has continued to be awesome, especially now that I am done tracking drums and generally sit on the couch and tell other people what they should be doing. My much-dreaded back-up vocals still need to be recorded, but I’m trying not to think about that yet.

Favorite part of recording so far had to be recording the percussion solo for Rising from the Ashes. A list of instruments played by me during that part: Large cowbell, medium cowbell, woodblock, suspended cymbal, VIBRASLAP, triangle, Rwandan hand drum, bongos, djembe, toy cap gun, carrot (I bit it as loudly as possible), shakers, guiro, and a pot with a chain in it. A close second for favorite recording moment was recording the fifth take of Day Will Come with no pants. Of course it was the one we ended up using.

Lastly, my girlfriend just got me an amazing camera for my birthday so I can now share some pictures:
Kevin throwing down on Grand Piano. He showed up and recording for 'The Fortune' took a turn
TBone and Chris listening to the playback at Blue Universe.
Our producer, J. Blaze, obtained at no small cost, keeping us focused at Avalon Studios.
