MARGARET’S off to take Catriona and the kids swimming in the village.
I have breakfast and get a few things done then all roll up. Margaret makes the kids mac’n’cheese and I hit the studio.
Time’s starting to run out to get all my recordings ready for mixing at Chem19 and I need to get the new songs finished and recorded. I decide to start with a new song – Devil May Care – as I need to send it to my pal Chris in Northern Ireland to add some drums.
I watched a video on re-amping guitars and, as luck would have it, I don’t need any extra gear, so I think this is the way forward for recording the guitar. Plus three microphones it will cover all bases.
It wakes me a while to get set up and figure out what to do…then I need to work out the final (?!?!) guitar part, set up mics and get recording. Recording and producing your own stuff, by yourself, is quite difficult…but tI think I get a take in the bag….
Happy with my progress – albeit slow – I go back tot hehjosue and marinade some chicken for the grill then go out for a quick walk.
I get the charcoal and grill going and do the chicken which we enjoy while watching a film…no idea what it was called but it was about two old folks in an apartment block getting to know each other….
