Recording Woes

IMG_5884

A very exclusive peak into my home studio! I came up with this simple, jazzy chord progression a few days ago, thought I might lay down something quick, add a melody and some lyrics that didnt make sense, nothing fancy! Didnt expect it to take me all day, but alas, thats the nature of recording! Its the precision of it all that makes it so difficult. One string rings for half a second too long, a note buzzes in a way you didnt like, your entrance is quarter beat late… and you start all over! It takes immense amounts of patience. And if you know me, you know that patience isn’t my strong suit. Maybe this is an exercise in it then. It makes you gain a respect for incredible tracks. The amount of precision and effort required to make things sound effortless. It is amazing though, the kind of things you can produce in a bedroom these days. I’ve seen a range of home studios since being in Dublin, from very humble to quite advanced. Recorded musical magic can happen from the comfort of the home, and these days anyone can become a bedroom producer.
