My Troubles Are As Nothing Compared To Yours - 211014

Sponsored by "Bjork".

Started work on a new piece today. Tracked 7 parts of electro-acoustic 12-string guitar on the Tascam 2488 - DI'd. Audio cleanup in AA3 and inserted into the relevant project file in CE5.

To those of you unfamiliar with my cheap'n'cheerful 12-string, say hello to my Godman...

As you know, I can't really play guitar in the conventional sense, but I was able to track 4 parts on a modal drone (is that what I meant?), with 2 Echo & The Bunnymen-esque melodic lines picked on the G-strings, and an occasional upstrum. The melodic lines will need some editing, but the main parts tend to mask each other's flaws, so I'll pretty much leave them alone.

I can hear bass parts (tomorrow), and banks of choral vocals (much later).

And all of this was recorded while I was wearing my dressing gown. Phew, rock'n'roll, eh...?
