Strum strum strum…

Well, I’ve made a start. Used the Line 6 for effects (still can’t get all of them on there though for some reason). Used an acoustic sound for a bit of good old strumming and a sharper more direct sound for a more picked (ish) type part. Both panned either side but seem to drown out the lead guitar a bit but that’s what mastering is for! I’ll have a go at the heavier bit’s this weekend and hopefully we’ll get something classic HMD at the end of it, but with extra shineyness. A bit like Tron Legacy compared to Tron, but without the CGI Jeff Bridges.

I must admit, i have only a very vague recognition of the track. Which is a good thing I suppose as it means rediscovering the old sounds again. I was impressed how well Robs and my guitar parts fit together. Sounds just like the good old days! I remember the fusty rehearsal room with carpet on the walls, amps everywhere and pedals spread all across the floor. I swear at one point we even had 2 x 15″ sub, 2 x 10″ mid and 2 treble horns in there plus 5 people. Oh, and watching the Spice Girl gig at Don Valley from the window. lol. Good times. Weird how things move on and we find ourselves in different places remembering time past. Times when everything was about playing music and having fun. Oh, and trying to find a drummer that wasn’t either a weirdo or deaf. We even had a female drummer for a practice or two. I’m sure I saw her in Sheffield the other week but I can’t remember her name. Only that she had a pet lizard that kept escaping (that’s not a euphemism)…

  1. Part of me would love to get that old room back and have another go, we had some good times in there. As well as some artistic differences…

    Don’t worry about drowning me out (I haven’t listened yet) we’ll fix in the mix. And the remix. I’m just glad you’re playing too, your right hand was a key part of the HowManyDevils sound.
