In the studio Recording : Drums

Day one in the studio, building on some of the demo's I've been working on and songs we've been playing live. Lots and lots of drums. Tins, Toms, Bins, Bells, ding-a-ling-a-lings?? and Bass-drums. Everything but cymbals. These particular shots we were using a single room mic looming over the kit for a brand new fluttering butterfly groove I'm going to take away and write to. I put some guitar twangy parts down on a beautifully battered old dented guitar, found resting in the corner, which we mic-ed and amp-ed up. Lots to take away and decipher. Sounding like some big Elephant dance in the jungle at the moment. More to come...including some video snippets!
