In the Studio

Last night I was in the recording studio for a few hours overdubbing some tracks for my brother Dan’s upcoming Christmas album. It was fun. The room has a great vintage Neve console with faders from here to Timbuktu.

This record is going to be good. I don’t know if it even has a name yet, but it’s kind of a folk/pop thing with moody guitars and interesting solos and arrangements.

I mostly played shakers and cymbal rolls, which I believe is called “sweetening” in the studio world.

Here are a couple of pics.
