Live Blogging From The Recording Studio

Here we are at the recording studio. We're recording a song. A secret song. A cover song. We were sort of commissioned to record it by The Stranger. Sort of. We're gonna play it this New Year's Eve. It's a 9 minute song.

Okay, I'm in the big blue easy chair. Rob's on the couch. Kirk is on the leather chair. John A's noodling around on the mandolin. Evan's doing his laundry. John O and Pete and Basil are in the studio proper messing with the bass. The bass is an instrument with 4 strings.

Evan just bought a chair from Ikea. Oh, now John A's got the banjo-mandolin.

Evan is now on Pete's computer looking up a bulk box of pop-tarts that he can buy on Amazon. Pop tarts make me ill. But that doesn't stop me from eating them. One time I bought a bulk box of 25 boxes of Annie's Macaroni & Cheese. That stuff is top notch. Right now I'm not eating dairy or cheese though, to see if maybe that has something to do with the stuffed up nose I've had since June. I really like cheese. And that's saying something, because I don't really like food.

Ooh, ladies just showed up!

So far, the recording session is going very well. We used only 3 mics on Kirk's drum set, for that classic Glyn John 70's rock sound. Bass and guitar are going direct, possibly to be re-amped later. My guess is that we won't get to my accordion part until tomorrow, so I guess I'll go back to the couch.
