Offshore Faith

I happened across this little test recording I made while setting up one of my project studios in 2002. This was my private musical retreat situated a safe distance away but still on the same premises as the Cancer hospital my mother and I ran for eighteen years. I laid down the instrumentation with wires coming out of everywhere, tracking the improvised guitar solo in one take while bending about 45 Degrees over the studio workstation. This is as close to "distortion" as any unplugged acoustic guitarist can get ;)
Process: Taylor 510 > AKG C 1000 S > Logic Audio > Nuendo, with Waves TrueVerb on the drums and Timeworks ReverbX on the guitar > sampling and MIDI programming.
