Happy Days in the Studio
After yesterdays (24-01-2018) session in the studio, I am looking forward to more Happy Days in the Studio
As you can see from the picture I set the whole kit up to check it out and tune where needed. I don’t normally use this size of kit in a pub or club preferring a 1 up one down setup.
The first hour was spent setting up, tuning and just playing the drums to find any new limits.
Then I started with playing along to songs via my smart phone and earphones.
This was a bit hard as they have limited the volume level so I could hardly hear what I was playing along to but worked through many different styles including rock, ska, blues, shuffle and so on.
I got to playing a run through of She Sell Sanctuary by the Cult, as a side note I have a cassette tape, for you young readers Google it, of me playing this live 1990…., gulp I’m getting old , & decided to just turn on the recording on my phone and record it to see how it is.
I will say I think its not to bad for a single run through, a little bit pushy and pully in the middle but not bad considering.
Below is the video of which I added the real track as a layer, cutting in and out of me drumming, so you can see im not that far off.
All in all I am really pleased with my kits setup, sound & my time in the studio.
I now look forward to getting my bands mates along to the next studio time to rock it out for real !!!
