I've been asked at most solo shows: "Why don't you make a CD that sounds like what you play at these acoustic shows?" My answer is usually "er... uh... heh... well I don't have time because I'm in 7 bands." Eventually I got tired of hearing myself say that.
I've finished 6 songs already, and am choosing a few more. It's just acoustic guitar and voice... raw versions of some of my favourite songs to play. It's turned out to be a pretty emotional experience (note: I get emotional over baby food commercials) -- so, I'm taking my time. I think this will be a special little record that is perfect for this time in my life.
Generally I've been recording the song 3 or 4 times and using the best take. I'm leaving little mistakes in, which is a new step for me. The most important thing I want to do is get across the true feeling I have for the song. I'm excited to make this leap and share these with you.
Stay tuned. :)
