Three days of RAWK!
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week, I was at Hyde Street Studio C recording with Tim Young on guitar and Jaimeson Durr on engineering. We did THIRTEEN TUNES, some with as many as three guitar tracks. If you've ever been in a recording studio, you know how incredible this number is and Tim can take soul and sole credit for our MASSIVE productivity. Music just flows from the guy and his idea well is bottomless. Equally staggering, most of Tim's takes were totally killer, we only wanted to make them even more killer or fix some little nuance that only Tim or Jaime or I would ever notice. For example, nothing wrong with the above guitar solo, right? But we did it a few more times just to get what we were all truly after. I'll post more videos in the coming days -- photos, too! -- but for now I need to reconnect with the world and do some practical stuff like organize the session files, jot down all of my notes from the sessions into one place and, yes, pay invoices. Tim, I thank you from the very deepest places in my heart. You rock, and that is the highest compliment I can pay anyone.
