Photo update for the FanFunded.com project
Mike and I met with sound engineer extraordinaire Ron Allaire at Reservoir Studios NYC right here in midtown Manhattan. What a great vibe and sound.
Mike getting sounds: My guitar acted up a bit with that big old single coil pickup hum, so I ended up using a guitar that fortunately just happened to be in the studio – a gorgeous, brand new D’Angelico. I had to swap out the strings for a batch of my favorite Thomastik Infeld “.014, and after that it was glorious. Took pix of the Fender amp setting for future reference. Mark Miller joined us again [he played on Leap Year on the first CD], this time for a very challenging tune [with a poorly prepared chart – sorry Mark!] called Wally The Body Snatcher. It’s going to be great!
