CD Project Update #19 – It’s Slowly But Surely
May 28, 2011
Recording is now back into full swing at Red Brick Music for my CD last Wednesday (May 25th) and we’re now putting electric guitar onto the tracks that feature Stig Lindell’s keyboard tracks.
The two tracks we worked on were Don’t Turn To Me Now and Shadows.
The main challenge that Darren and I were facing on the day was to come up with guitar overdub ideas that successfully weave in-between what the keyboards were doing. This is so we can try and get some sort of balance between the two instruments.
I think we did pretty well on the day.
I even attempted to put down a lead solo in Shadows which was a daunting task with both Darren and our engineer, Anthony Stewart being gun guitarists themselves.
The end result however, is something that I’m really proud of and it was an experience that filled me with a little bit more confidence in my electric guitar playing.
Speaking about electric guitar, here are some more photos of Darren’s rig…
Until the next time…
