Back in our cozy studio @ at Carroll's this week for another small grouping Deadstein. Lee and Scott on drums, angled toward each other for better communication and footage. Kevin's rigs for the first time in a while was not between the drummers but on the back wall. Rich and I completed the jam circle kind of facing each other. I was playing my gold Les Paul again this week through my Dream 65 effect into the clean channel of a Fender Deluxe while recording into a DI right from the Dream 65. I wasn't thrilled with my tone in the room during the night but the recording is OK.
For the most part Rich and I switch off singing the songs of the night and we played a bit more Garcia Band than usual with the crew that we had in the house. It made sense and we ended up with a lot of songs. Twenty-one to be exact, yet with out one real jam and or segue. I snuck in 3 jazz tunes as my jazz camp is creeping up on me so i want to get as many of those in as people will take. With the exception of the favorite Things, they were pretty good. While I wasn't thrilled with the overall performance, nothing was too good, but with that stated, it was all good enough and the recording and video are pretty good. Makes for a good night making you want to come back for more, which we shall.
