RECORDING SESSIONS AT CHATEAU SAZZ - DAY 2, 8.19.13 (Black Cows & Bad Coffee)



Interesting day, toggling between bliss and grief.  Channeled all the energy into the tunes.  Covered lots of ground as I commited washes of guitar tracks to tape.  Most acoustic parts done.  Will then transition to electric tomorrow as the ol' Jazz sounds rich in the neck pickup with a little tremolo or vibe.

Some new techniques inherent to the 2488 learned today.  Some are just left as questions unanswered.  All the same, ploughing forward...

Drove into town for some quiet coffee house contemplation and found myself right smack dab in the middle of an open mic (how could I not bring my guitar?).  As they were winding down, I put my name on the list.  Hey, an opportunity, right?  Wound up using some dude's classical, soft yet lush, which was no match for the urgency of my pipes.  In other words, it felt unbalanced.  Fair reception for Die and How Do You Feel (maybe they weren't up for a philosophy lesson?).  Untimately, glad I took the plunge.



Along the way, passed a pasture of black cows.  Must have been at least 50 of them.  Stopped to take some photos and was spat at by one unfriendly, camera-shy bugger in the bunch (even after I lectured my ethics to her). Perhaps she doesn't speak vegan?  Later on, learned that they were part of a beef farm.  I can see her point...

Thanks God for surrender.  Without it, I'd be packed up and headin' home right about now with my tail betwen my legs.  Life is good.

'Til tomorrow...
