Episode 039: How We Spent Our Winter Vacation
/

How did we manage to spend even more time recording together over the season break, and still like each other?

VaMos band recorded here at the home studio

  • It was serious enough Paul finally named the studio
  • Dave — Describe the project and the goals

Dave, what were you most worried about walking in? And how did you deal with it?

  • Having the parts come through as intended — felt safe doing that
  • Corralling the band, keeping things working properly

Paul, what about you?

  • First time recording people other than myself, it was all about their songs
    • Artist relationship as well as friends
    • A few people had done recording before
  • Making sure I had the chops and the gear to make sure they weren’t waiting on me
    • A lot of work ahead of time
    • Sorting out gear, cables, connections, testing lines, etc.
    • A lot of reading and also YouTube to check my approach
    • Assistant engineering

The process

  • What you expected and what you ended up doing
  • Bassist plus band leader

What surprised you the most?

  • Dave
    • More production vs getting in and out
  • Paul
    • How much I enjoyed being on the outside
  • Dave: another outlet for music energy other than gigs
