Jannes' guitars finished.

3rd. day of my guitars' recordings is done, and all the rhythm guitars, lead melody guitars, and solo guitars that I`m ment to play are now recorded. Fingertips of my left hand fingers are numb and burning red, but I managed to get over with the mystical "fear of the rec. button", and got excellent performance captured on the hard disk. We have more solos and more lead melodies than ever, and the riffs in the songs are great (of course, because they are mostly made by me), so it was fun and interesting to record the guitars this time. After all this, we grilled some sausages with Niko in the warm springy evening.

In next weeks we will continue the recordings with Laris' drums. Until then!

Guitar recordings started at Ruokolahti.

Yesterday we started the guitar recordings in our main studio, Ruokolahti, South Karelian, Finland. Ruokolahti is a village of 5600 inhabitans, right next to Russian border and lake Saimaa. We decided to capture the sound of my Bugera 6260 amp with two mics, and one straight line-in track, so we would have enough possibilities to edit the sound later. We founded a great, punchy tone quite easily and managed to record five songs worth of rhythm guitar tracks in 8 hours. After that, it was time for beer, vodka, cider and Sauna (of course).

More rhythm guitars, maybe even lead guitars, but surely quality time to come today. The quest for glory continues.
