Last Saturday we completed our third 6 hour recording session and we are pleased to say we've been making steady progress on the new album. We've gotten all of the basic guitar parts for the 5 songs and 3 of the vocal tracks with harmonies done.
Stage fright in the studio?
I found myself a little jittery when standing behind the microphone singing my lead vocals although I was completely alone in the room with only Phil and Chris listening through headphones. I was imagining that I would never get the part right and we would be there all day spending money on studio time with nothing to show. It was a little disorienting because I am so used to playing and singing live or recording at home. As it turns out, the third take was actually much better and smoother than I thought and we kept almost the whole thing with hardly any corrections needed.
