It's a wrap

Today was a long one. We were on the set of a documentary that was being filmed in Florence, Alabama on a larger farm.

We had to be there fairly early so we left out just after coffee and the drive up was uneventful. We arrived and unloaded out gear. I parked the car on the back 40 to keep it out of the shots. There was
already over a hundred people there.

We thought we'd be playing acoustic with just Jilda and me, but as it turns out we had a crew of A-Team players from Muscle Shoals.

We ran through the song one time with the band so I wasn't sure how it would sound. But when the cameras started rolling we played our original song The Ride Never Ends and it sounded as if we had all been playing together for years. I love playing with pros.

It was a fun day, but I can tell you it will be an early night tonight. Anytime you focus that much energy into four minutes it's exhausting.

I hope your day has been fun too.

  6. That is so cool and I hope we can get to see it. It must have been so much fun to work with professionals because they can just pick up things so fast. Hope you get a good night's sleep

  7. Before reading this we ran into a situation where a singer was working with a new sound guy. She handled it beautifully. As we were leaving she was apologizing, I broke in, "Nah, that is when you can tell the professional from the amateur, how they handle the 'unexpected' you did great."
    I am sure you and Jilda did the same. Good on you guys. It sounded like a great gig for you guys!

  11. It sounds like a wonderful day. Fully focusing on anything is tiring. A reminder that I so often don't. And should.
