Today we started the recording process for our second song composed by my group member Jack ‘Travel’. This song will keep the same acoustic style as our other track but will not feature drums. Instead we will using various percussion such as taps on the guitar, shakers and tambourines.
We were able to record the final guitar tracks relatively quickly as our guitarist was well prepared. The track was recorded in one take and had a natural warm sound. We had the NT2A on the base of the guitar and another Audio Technica mic on the neck to pick up the smaller details on the fret board.
Next session we will be recording the percussion and experimenting with different mic placement techniques.
