The previous week we didn’t manage to record ALL the guitar parts so last Friday Pascal came back and we finally nailed those last bits. Whew. It took us 4 days in total to record the guitars for this album. That’s 1 more day than I had thought beforehand, actually. Today I went in and recorded bass parts to 4 of the songs. I’m not a bassist, so most of the lines I play consist of ground notes of the guitar chords, but I do try to add something extra to these parts. Perhaps a bit of swing, if nothing else, haha. Anyway, it’s Q’s birthday and he had visitors coming over to celebrate so we quit early. Tomorrow we’ll be back for the remaining 2 songs and bass re-amping.
Here’s a list of the gear we use(d) for the recordings:
Drums: TAMA Starclassic Performer kit & Birch snare
Cabinet: Marshall cab loaded with Celestion V30’s
Bass: Ibanez Soundgear 5-string
Bass amp + cab: Aguilar
