learning, recording, shadow puppets

Wind, Rain and Shadows

We started the day recording trumpet 🎺 for one of my tracks, #Free; would have done more but the wind and rain was too noisy! I’ve not recorded trumpet before but between the two of us it went well..

So I’ve been working on the shadow theatre 🎭 for #Gaslight and wearing my Christmas 🎄 jumper to keep warm….


what have you been up to on this wild wet ☔️ day?

guitar, Life, music

Two of my favourite things

So, the rain has stopped; now it’s only the trains, biplane, and squirrels 🐿 running across the roof of my recording space that I have to contend with 😂😭😂 I’ve got the old lady out today – my #Takamine EN30C, I’ve had it for more than half my life and it’s a gorgeous full bodied sound. I traded a Yamaha jumbo for her plus a wad of cash I borrowed. Loved her from the first time I played her.

My other guitar is a Martin…. yes I’m lucky like that. It was another ‘I have to have this guitar’ moment … Smaller, brighter and lively and yet still rich toned but not what I was after today for the two laid back songs I’ve been recording today.
