Week 48, To Sleep

To listen on an iPhone, visit my Bandcamp site, or download the SoundCloud iPhone app.

This week’s song is a little different. It’s pretty thick-sounding, but at its core is a simple little finger-picked guitar part. I recorded just about everything using the Alesis ProTrack. The acoustic finger-picking was with the built-in mics, though there’s way more hiss and noise than I would’ve liked. If I had more time I would’ve gone back and re-recorded the guitars, but I had a lot of humming to track. Many of the other tracks, including the drums, were recorded using the mic preamps on the Alesis. That continues to be a godsend. I’m sure the preamps aren’t of the highest quality, but to get a nice large-diaphragm condenser mic directly into my phone, I’m not complaining.

The details continue to come together for the grand finale show. It will be Sunday, September 5, at the Brillobox in Pittsburgh. The show feature local acts Endless Mike and the Beagle Club, Pairdown, Karl Hendricks (solo), River is to Train, and the band version of Developer. We’ll be performing the 52nd song of Project 52 and recording it live to post here the following day.

I hope to see a bunch of you there. Have a great week everyone.
