03.01.17 My Shallow Son


I've been whining all vacation about how I missed playing guitar... and I'll be damned if yesterday I didn't find a nylon guitar hidden in the air bnb house we're at. Thankfully it had a song waiting for me in it. The one you hear above to be exact. And of course, I ended up not using any guitar in the recording itself. Instead I chopped up recordings I took earlier of a construction site from up the road and making all the rhythms out of it. This is the exact system I have been talking about trying for a new record. Write and record a scratch track on guitar, then layer and layer with electronics and eventually take out all guitar. I think it could work!

Oh, and the vocal track was done with that little microphone that is attached to iPhone headphones... kinda love it actually.
