I was happier with last night’s recording – extra practise and knowing the tracks in question much better paid off. In the end, we mainly worked on one song, Maybe Epic Soon. We did several complete takes and then section by section with multiple repeats. One of the challenges was that, playing acoustic instruments in the same room, the stringed instruments get picked up to some degree by each other’s mics so everyone in the string section has to play everything perfectly. Hopefully the trick of listening to a metronome before each take will increase the chance of splicing good bits over the occasional glitch!
Watch for a String Project EP, hopefully not too far into the New Year.
