Bare Wood 2 update

02021-06-26 | Uncategorized | 5 comments

Bare Wood 2 is nearing completion. Jon finished recording upright bass for the new pieces and he really sounds on top of his game. I have to complete a few melodies for one of the pieces. There are percussion parts for three or four pieces to be recorded during the next couple of weeks and then I need to finish mixing and mastering the album. I am planning to release Bare Wood 2 at the end of this year or in the beginning of next year but, of course, you will hear some of it here first.

    I look forward to that.

    Ottmar – You have one of the best recorded guitar tones. Would you be willing to share some of your secrets around mic position and preferred mic settings (ie Omni vs cartoid vs something else). Looking forward to Bare Wood 2

      Thanks Ian. I am happy to share that information and will take some photographs to illustrate my method.

        Thanks Ottmar, that would be amazing – can you shared your EQ settings on mixdown for the guitar as well? I’m sure there are many musicians on your site who would treasure this information

    I’m looking forward to BW2. I’m currently enjoying Three-Oh-Five in the background as I work. Hope all is well in Santa Fe.
