Studio report nr. 5 (Rocking Reckless again)
I haven't only been singing, I've played lots of guitar as well. On the latest session I recorded some electric guitar. I played slide, harmony (twin lead "my part") and I also changed some of the "clean" guitar sounds. I prefer to do those with my Fender guitars, since there's a lot more "twang" in them compared to my Les Paul. It was a blast to play my Stratocaster directly plugged into my Fender Concert amp. In my book, it sounded just the way it should. Of course I also did some "heavy riffing" at loud volume and let me tell you, you'll never get too old for such a thing. I promise you, it's probably the funniest thing you can do during the recording! I've also had a great time with my recently bought 12-string acoustic guitar (Furch, strange name but a great sound!), which will be very prominent on this album.
By now I know that the other lads in The Musical Companion are occupied with work for the upcoming album as well. I guess I'm gonna pay sir Kjellvete a visit, at his fabulous Kjells Angels Studios next week. Can't wait to hear what the guys have been up to!
