Some photos and videos from Tom, and words from Ryan.
10 am. Tracking guitars. (Ry & Jam).
Finished recording the acoustic treatments for “Broken Beautifully.” The plan is to counterpoint the two, puttin em in stereo with a rusty steel-bodied resonator and an old Martin acoustic. (Sweet T will have his bluesy lead floating on top.)
Acoustic guitar underlayments for “Good to Bad.” Jam adds his electric hollow body guitar to the mix.
Jam provides his geetar on “Dank Mississippi.” It's now ready for blues harp, banjo & more.
Jam lays down rhythm for “Straws”; “Straws” is nearing its completion in terms of instrumentation.
4 pm-6 pm.
I laid down some lap steel for “Good to Bad,” now that Jam's rhythm was sitting in the mix. It's gonna be one hell of a song—Doors-y psychedelia meets a grungy “Come Together” with some Ravi Shankar peppered in there. I think I laid down somewhere around a dozen guitar tracks! This one gon' be a trip.
