Started to record guitars today at Redhouse Studio in Helsinki.
The only thing that was missing was that I noticed I did not have an amplifier!
As it is a few hard to record anything without an amplifier and since I don't have
my ENGLs anymore, I was obviously facing a problem.
The studio owner and a fellow Beatles fan Esa Yli-Jaskari was and has been more than
helpful in everything. He arranged me the same amp I used for the recordings of the Destiny
album: Laney VH 100. It took 10 minute to get a great sound and I finished 4 songs already today.
There will be lot of guitars on this album so I think I will spend almost 2 weeks for the recordings (like with Trinity album).
It is the first time in my life I will be recording on the 24th of December and that feels...kind of liberating.
Everybody seem to think I'm sad because of "missing the XMas", but I could not be happier about how this record is turning out to be. The new guitar S7 feels wonderful and easy to play.
As always, I keep you updated how things are going and we have a little XMas present for you next week
on our web page www.symfonia.fi so don't forget to check the page. Some band members are also discussing about various of topics in Symfonia Forum. Why not register, you won't be killed :) (It's moderated though).
After the guitars I will fly to Sweden to spend 2 weeks with Andre Matos recording vocals and guess what, I will miss the 31st as well :) So carry on, eh? :)
It's 3am in the morning in snowy Helsinki. Time to get some sleep. Over and out.
