Was super excited to be invited into Big Gorilla Studios in Wailuku last night for some Winter Solstice recording fun! Didn’t have much prepared because of the last-minute invite, so when the audio team busted out a really intimate vocal mic and great acoustic guitar mic, I decided to go to an old favorite by Neil Young.
Both tracks (vocals and guitar) recorded live/simultaneously. Guitar is my precious Takamine 12-string. I’ll find out what the microphones were for you audio nerds out there. (There was a LOT of audio nerd talk going on at Big Gorilla last night, so something tells me these were some fancy mics. I was told the vocal mic alone was worth at least $3,000!!!)
This recording is my holiday gift to you all: a gentle to reminder to not be brought down, no matter how ugly it gets. You will come around.
Song originally recorded by Neil Young.
