Onto Tuesday morning and we began with percussion parts, with all three of us contributing to fill out the percussion sections. I had a choice of bass guitar/amp combinations there and ended up going with a vintage Ampeg which I'm told was used by the mighty Boyzone for a while on the road. I figured that was the ideal amp due to what Im aiming for with this album, and what Im about. The bass parts went down fairly quickly as I knew the songs quite well already. Then I finally got my hands on the grand piano and hammond organ that I'd been coveting since Monday morning. This is the first time in my long career that I've had access to this kind of gear when recording an album. Partly because of inexperience, sabotage, the wrong combinations of people, and good old fashioned 'not having my sh*t together'. All in all this session is surpassing my expections so far and its already sounding fairly innovative along with the pre-production stuff that I brought along with me. The perfect location and just the right people to springboard this album process into fruition. I'm lucky to have people like Mauro and Mick onboard.
We'll have some more pics and footage up over the next few days for those who are following this project. Thanks for the interest and support.
