Happy New Year!

Well, it's 2012, and after a week and a half of being off, I am back at the day job...

I wish I could say I got a lot done musically in my off time, but that would be a lie. I did achieve my primary goal, which was to set up a few microphones and record my son David playing drums on at least a couple of numbers. David's been playing since last summer and is starting to get pretty good. I played a rough bass part along with him and the plan was to overdub a fuller bass part and some guitars after the fact. The bass bled more than I'd hoped into the drum mics, so I might not be able to do much with these tracks. Next time I'll play through the mixer and we can use headphones to hear the bass part and thus keep it out of the microphones - either that, or I'll just record the real bass part at the same time.

We still have another two weekends with David at home during winter break, so hopefully we'll get in another session and get some really usable tracks.
