Today we recorded the guitar parts for the song. This was done by Edgar (soundman) and Benn (guitarist). We went to a local college as our sound man is on a course there. Benn’s guitar was plugged directly into a Saffire 6 audio interface and recorded using Logic on a mac laptop. Benn recorded bass, rhythm and some in fills on top. So thats 3 tracks to mess around with. I came into the session late-this had consequences!
Later today I recorded my vocals. Unfortunately I found the key too low so when I sang I sounded like a croaky frog. This wouId have prevented had I been present, I could have told Benn to up the key. Lesson learned: Don’t be late for rehearsals or recordings! My bad. However to be productive with the time we had we recorded me acapella in the correct key. I shall send this to Benn-Guitar man to have a listen.
Plan of Action:
- Re-record Benn tomorrow in correct key.
- Dash home and record vocals!
- Put a fresh and funky beat to it.
