This song was recorded a few years ago. I wrote, played and produced the song in a couple of days.
The song was written on a Mann acoustic guitar which was also used on the recording.
It was recorded on a Fostex 4-track unit, with the following gear, an AKG 414 mic for the acoustic guitar/vocals, Roland MKII for drums, a SD Curlee vintage Bass, a Fender Heartfield guitar, Alesis 3630 compressor, zoom 9002, Sansamp GT2, Rockman Chorus, and Steinberg Wavelab 4.
I laid the drums track first, acoustic, bass, rhythm, vocals, and lead guitar last.
I then recorded the song into my computer with Wavelab then converted it to an MP3. I hope you enjoy the song.
