Recording - part deux

I don't even know where to begin. First, the studio was amazing! To think that we recorded in the same studio as many famous folk (granted most of them are country artists, but still, they are famous nonetheless), including Elton John, Tina Turner, N'sync, Lonestar, Taylor Swift, Brooks and Dunn, Gretchen Wilson, etc. Second, it was an incredibly long and tiring weekend. Third, studio musicians are the bomb. I don't usually play to a click track and it takes some getting used to. You get off a little bit from the click and it totally throws everything off and sounds really weird in your head phones. Fourth, Adam, the sound engineer and cousin to the DeJarnett's, is really good at what he does. He was very encouraging and had great ideas for our songs. Fifth, I can't wait to do it again!

I must say that we had pretty low expectations going into the weekend. We were expecting to do around 4 songs in the two days we had the studio. Around mid-day Sunday we had 7 songs done (at least instrumentation wise). We still have some lead vocals to lay down and some background instrument tracks (ie. mandolin, keyboard, B3 organ, etc). So hopefully come spring we fill have a finished, 7 song CD!! So if any of you creative-folk have the time, we could use a CD title and cover artwork ideas.

Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

I love studio pics. Can't wait to hear the record when it drops. Ha.

Are you flexing in the picture where you are looking at the board, trying to decide if you need to roll off 2k on the kick drum?
