Long Live the Ashes Studio Blog – Day 2

Currently Listening to: D’Angelo – Spanish Joint

Today was a complete change of pace in the recording process. Between solidifying parts for new tunes, laying down scratch tracks, then actually laying down the final drum tracks for “Hourglass,” “Lost You Before,” and “Silhouette,” I’m estimating that I was playing my kit for the better part of eight hours or so today. It was awesome and exhausting.

Some highlights of the day:

  1. *Giving Tom fashion tips on sunglasses at the local coffee shop (see above)
  2. *Tracking some really different drum kit parts for “Hourglass” … and taking up 32 channels to do it.
  3. *Rooftop Cookout & Cornhole

* Getting the first bits of video documentation of the session

Finally Tom (producer & engineer) and I were getting too fried to keep a fresh perspective on things, so we called it a night. Tomorrow, drum edits will begin and then we’ll dive back into tracking.
