Ahh.. feels good to type that. Don’t get me wrong, I love recording but there are different levels of doubt and stress that creep in during the process. It’s a relief to be nearly done and be happy with it. This will be my 7th album and I’ve definitely noticed a general theme of thoughts and emotions when recording a new record that goes a little something like this..
I’m going to create the greatest record ever recorded.
1st Starting to Record:
Why can’t I decide on a mic placement? It’s been 2 weeks with nothing to show for it. Maybe I should go to recording engineering school..
A Few Songs Completed:
These songs sound great. Who needs recording engineering school? Thank you Youtube!
All Guitar Tracks Recorded:
Or are they? Maybe this and that song would sound better faster or in a different key? Nope.. it’s all good. J
Mixing and Mastering:
Damn, this is a lot of money. Maybe I should go to recording engineering school? I don’t have time for that! This is sounding really good.. bank account almost empty.
Artwork and Duplication:
Now I must find one picture that represents the record.. Impossible.
Eureka! That’s the one! 1000 CDs are on their way. Bank account empty. Back to my Ramen noodle diet.
I hope this is all worth it..
Finished CD in My Hand:
This is not the greatest recording ever made. This is the greatest recording I’ve ever made. I can’t wait to share this. J
SAVE THE DATE.
TRUE NORTH CD RELEASE PARTY WILL BE AUG 2ND 2:30
Details to follow.. until then.. smile,
