| Recording Update - October 2003|
October 25th 2003: Chris and Trent got together to work on a test keyboard part for "I Feel Fine".
||Basically we worked through some more technical issues today. We migrated I Feel Fine over to Sonar 3 on my new PC. We then experimented with some cowbell in the chorus and worked on some organ patches for a keyboard part Trent was experimenting with. I made a rough mix of the whole thing for the first time.|
October 11th 2003: Chris, Trent and I spent time on "I Feel Fine" and "Star".
||It had been awhile since I had picked up the bass but it all came back quickly as I recorded the bass line for "I Feel Fine". We had some issues with recording/clipping. We eventually sorted all that out and the song is now beginning to take shape. I'm looking forward to the finished product. We still have to do vocals and we may add other parts too. Trent and Chris recorded rhythm guitar parts for "Star". We didn't have much time to work on those parts though and we may revisit it the next time we record.|
October 4th 2003: Chris and Trent began working on "I Feel Fine".
Chris and I laid down some guitar tracks for "I Feel Fine" using the latest in POD and Edirol technology to create beefy stadium rock guitar sounds. I played through a 90's Marshall Head, with a 96 Marshall 4x12 cabinet that had vintage speakers in order to achieve a truly rocking tone. Chris doubled my tracks with a similar setup, but then switched to an ultra-dirty vintage sound for his other parts. Very sweet, all in all - a bit time consuming, but total fun.
The tones sound great and song is shaping up well. We also worked out a bunch of technical issues that should speed things up in the future. We will hopefully be setting up another session this weekend. I also did a bunch of work learning how to process and mix drums, it made a huge difference and the drums are sounding really fat now.
August 25th 2003: Prior to Craig's departure to Africa, we went into the studio and laid down 7 drum tracks. We have taken those drum tracks and are working on filling in the rest at our at-home studio.
