geez louise

I was working on making a mixdown of a song last night, and was having some issues. Well, it turns out that there are differing bit depths and sample rates in the project. Bummer. Now it’s going to take at least an hour or two to export and re-import everything properly into another project. I don’t like setbacks. 🙁
In other news, I opened up for American English (essentially) on Sunday with a set of classical instrumentals that included Maleguena, Bouree, and Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, as well as alternative rock instrumentals like No Memory (Stone Temple Pilots), Whale & Wasp (Alice in Chains), and Joseph Merrick (Mastodon), amongst others. It was a good experience all around, the event was nice, I played well, hung out with the band after the show (they liked what I played), all in all a memorable and fun time.

slidin’

Last evening Nate came in and started working on a slide guitar part for the song called “western song”. Slide guitar is a very touchy thing to lay down, because by nature the slide never touches the frets, just the strings, so just about every time the frets were touched, they buzzed or generally objected. However, after a lot of patience on his part with getting it right, we finished the verses, with the choruses still to go. Thanks Nate and can’t wait to finish up.
