CD Project Update #3 – Bass Tracks
July 15, 2010
I went into the studio yesterday to put down some bass tracks. Got through 12 of the 18 songs and will finish off the rest of the bass tracks as well as getting a start on putting down some acoustic guitar tracks in a fortnights time.

I found that doing the guide tracks to a click at the beginning of the recording process has made it easier to put down some bass afterwards. I found it a very enjoyable experience.
Recording this CD has really got me thinking about my relationship to music as a whole which for a long while it’s been best described as a love/hate relationship.
I think because music is the means in which I make my living with my cover band FIGJAM playing around the traps I was starting to look at music as a job rather than a calling, a passion in life and that was getting me down. Recording this CD has reignited my passion in a big way and has rejuvenated my creativity.
Im excited about the possibilities again.
Anyway, the bass tracks so far are rock solid and will provide the foundation needed to produce some great songs.
