    Hey, just listened to some of the mp3 you had posted before. Sounds great! I'm interested in the recording techniques you used. Can you tell us a bit about that? Were these done in a home studio? What kind of equipment are you using?

    Info along these lines would be very interesting.

    Sorry it has taken be so long to respond. I have been away, teaching at the National Summer Guitar Workshop these past few weeks.

    The initial recording were done in my home studio or my drummers home studio. I use a M Audio Delta 1010 and both Cakewalk Pro Audio and Samplitude. I use my Walter Woods or an ART Tube MP as a direct box/preamp. My drummer usesa Motu 2048 with a Digital Performer (Mac). From there I would bring all the .wav files to a studio for final mix, overdubs and the addiditon of digital effects. The engineer has a great ear, has all the plug-ins, is really quick with the software (samplitude) and has the mics, preamps and stuff I don't.

    I did use a seperate studio for some recordings with Grand Piano. These are not released yet. Paul McCandless the world class reed player has yet to record his parts.
