Living along the coast or inland in Perth can make or break one’s summer. Where we live – along the coast – temperatures during the warm season can be 7-15° cooler than the city. On a 40° day, a reading of 25-30° along the coast isn’t unusual. Don’t believe me? Just check with the Bureau of Meteorology!
Every now and then I listen to some of the early improvisational guitar work I’ve casually recorded and go “hmm…that was pretty cool – there’s actually a nice melody/riff in there – with a bit of better playing and proper mastering this could sound a whole lot better!”
And so begins the work of re-recording just about every track. Depending on the complexity of the song it usually takes around a week or two to put everything together – bass and drums tracks included. Occasionally, additional phrasing or harmony is usually thrown in for good measure!
