The new album is on its way, but there are still little bits to be added ! Today’s technology allows me to work from my room and bring the new takes to the studio to be finally put together with the rest of the recordings ! Althought this is an easy task, i tried to get pretty much all the reocrdings done “one take”, to make the album sound like a recorded performance, rather than a copy and paste job.
I wanted to work very quickly to mantain the spontaneity: i just added a new bassline to a song called “Play Guitar!”. After a couple of takes to get the right sound, i opted for the muted one, where i played the strings mainly with my thumb, in a very “The Police” fashion.
Time to adjust those lines before the actual take is done !
For the first time i recorded a guitar solo ! On the last track of the album, “Miserable Man”, instead of the mouth trumpet, i decided to play few bars on the guitar. We have been recreating a very retro vintage sound, with lots of reverb and vibrato.
Once i brought the last takes to the studio, the songs were ready to be mixed and mastered. The album is available on http://miserablemanmusic.bandcamp.com/
