Last Thursday's session with Vinegar Creek covered a lot of ground- mando breaks, fiddle breaks, and some fiddle+bass stuff. At one point I noticed that Jeff was intently scrutinizing the TV, which is always tuned to the classic movie channel for atmosphere.

Seems there was a mandolin in the scene. Not a Loar tho...

I enjoy making field recordings but I haven't had much opportunity to do so lately. Today I chanced into a situation that I couldn't pass by. I didn't have my usual recording gear, but the iPhone records well enough, as long as you're careful to put it in a good spot.

Let's see what those guys are up to over at Right Coast.

Oh, that's very nice!


Last Friday these guys stopped in to begin a new project.


Yes, it's Willy Marble and Mr. Shade. Over the course of a couple of hours we recorded guitar, vocal and bass tracks for 9 songs. Still banging 'em out in the ol' workshop.


If you'd like to support the work I do here, visit my page at Patreon, where a gift at the Thanks for Being You! level is just $10 a month.


The Vinegar Creek Constituency hope to complete all recording for their next thing by the end of the month.
Then, mixing.
