What an amazing and exhausting day. i just want to fall asleep on the keyboarddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd. Ok I'm back. We arrived at the studio at about 10am and loaded in. IN THE SNOW. Yep, snow in Nashville. So then after we thawed, we started setting up. Here's a visual for ya...Jordan's drums are set up in a room that is about 20 feet wide by about 40 feet across. In that same room we have Cody and Brian with their guitars/bass. The amps are in seperate rooms right next to the big room. I am the loner stuck in the Control Room. If you don't know, the control room is where the huge soundboard is, it's where the really smart engineer guys are, and it's where me and the producer are making sure all the songs are perfect before we start tracking.
So we spent the majority of the day getting drum, guitar, and bass sounds and by about 3pm, we began to track some drums. We played the whole song all together to make sure the parts were right and then Jordan tracked them by himself and did a fine job at that. So far we have 4 songs done on drums. :) That's good news. Now that we have all the amazing sounds, we should be able to blow through the rest of the drum tracks tomorrow and then move on to bass and guitars. Once we have all those done, then it's the icing on the cake, the vocals. That will be later in the week though.
That's it for today, check in tomorrow for the next update. Now it's time for sleep.
ps. we got some good video today so hopefully we can get some stuff up on the web within the next few weeks. keep your fingers crossed. :)
