What a difference a day makes



When it works, it works... After our morning coffee and a gathering of the spirits we decided to change a fundamental aspect of the way we were approaching the first song ... and lets just say there is no more frowning for Kerry. It is so amazing when things just line up... the performances today were on fire! (THE GOOD KIND OF FIRE)... the only smoke in the studio was coming out of the musicians. When we are playing at top form the equipment seems to work fine... Funny but true.

Cool old gear:
Billy broke out the Farfisa today and we ran it through a "secret weapon" It won't be such a secret on Tuesday when I showcase it and its history in the Tech Tuesday blog ... but for those of you curious as to what it could be... *Hint*(Pink Floyd) used one of these devices on some of their recordings. In fact, lets play a game. If you can guess what the "secret weapon" is I will send you a SP guitar pick that Billy used while recording the song...

All in all, just a great day in the studio.... very tired now but happy... ain't no sleep when you're living the dream... talk to you tomorrow.
Love KB

I am going to go very simple here, and guess an Electro Harmonix Small Stone.

Allison said...

Oh, I was way too late, plus I didn't know. haha...but it's so good to hear the day was much better than the day before. I am sure it's sounds awesome.

Benas said...

Owata, 99 Floors, Song for a Son, Gossamer. Are you guys planning to record those songs for the album? and maybe the stuff from Spirits in the Sky shows?

Christopher said...

Damn. Beaten to Echorec. Oh well. That should sound pretty unique. That's a drum echo unit, right?

Chelsea said...

Ive got one of those farfisas, but it stopped working.. They sound very nice indeed. Can't wait to hear the final cut!
