THERE’S a few routine things needing done before eI hit the studio..

Main task today is to finish editing the NAMM Show/California tour videoblog.

The actual video is almost done and just needs a wee tweak – but the audio all needs finished.

It takes me the entire day to adjust and edit the actual video sound, add in some music beds and the voiceover. Although not an Oscar-worthy masterpiece, I guess it does document the trip and will hopefully be of some interest to folks.

I set the considerable (2+ gig) file to upload – all going well the finished movie will premier on YouTube at 7.30m (UK time) tomorrow (Tuesday) night – if you’re quick, click here to set a reminder and watch!

After I make some smoked brisket tacos we wander along to Betty and Joe’s to help with some stuff and enjoy a glass or two of red any the same time…

WE have a bit of a lie in then have breakfast.

Mikey’s giving Les a lift back to Edinburgh and Matty’s going out for a run before he heads back to Dundee.

I hit the studio and record some instrumental guitar stuff to use in the wee film about our USA west. coast adventure. On ce done I go back top the house for some lunch, Matty gets back from his run, has a shower and hints the road and I get on with scripting up a voice-over for the film.

In the studio I record the newly written voice over and get it, along with the music recorded earlier, ready for the next stage of video editing.

I’m finished just in time for us to jump in the car to our pals’ Duncan and Irene’s where we’re going for dinner, Margaret drives and I enjoy a few glasses of red…
