Vlog# 13: Recording - Getting Ideas Down

March 9, 2018

I like to capture the mood of a piece and I think the best way is to create an Instrumental version that stands up on its own.


I create a 'scratch track' which is the essential parts of the song (usually with guitars but some can be later substituted with piano or other instruments) and lay down 3 or four tracks.



I like to play classical guitar by candlelight. I don't know what kind of magic is conjured in the presence of the pure flame... sure it's different to electric lighting. I think it's the intimacy and silence of the warming dance of the flame. It's calming...


Have a great weekend & look forward to sunny days next weekend as we start Springtime.
