IN THE BIG COUNTRY / SP ALBUM UPDATE
Guess why there was no posting yesterday? Because we got shit-all-nothin’ done. Today fared better, as I was able to accept, nay overcome the Mercury retrograde that has been plaguing all those heady saints of electronic faire.
Bass tracks completed: ANTI-HERO, BEING BEIGE, RUN TO ME, DORIAN; with designs on finishing the rest tomorrow. For those interested in gear, I’ve once again settled on the fantastic Reeves bass amp (probably the best I’ve ever used, and no I don’t have an endorsement); with mic techniques borrowed from the legendary Roy Thomas Baker (think 5 414’s on an Ampeg bass cab). For basses so far it’s the same Gibson Thunderbird used on OCEANIA, and a couple P-basses that go as far back as ADORE or ZEITGEIST. Oh, and the same bass used by the Byrds back in the day (a Guild Spitfire I believe?).
