Home Recording

I decided to take a vacation day today and I'm so glad I did. The rain moved back in yesterday and it rained all night. This morning I awoke to the sound of raindrops ticking off the Rose-a-Sharon bush outside our bedroom window. I'm hoping our weather patterns have changed and the drought is over.
I spent part of the day re-recording some of our songs. One thing we learned at the Taxi conference is that we have to do a better job at presentation. Recording, for me, is a slow process because when you are musician and the engineer, each time you mess up you have to start from the top. When you have an engineer, they can usually punch-in, and so fixing mistakes is simple.
I managed to get through the guitar parts of one song. Jilda will come in later and do the vocals. I think the more recording I do, the better I will get at engineering or at least that is my hope.
This week I plan to tackle more songs. I think I'll post a few and seek feedback. That's one of the best ways to know if you're on track or out in the high weeds in right field.
