SE Electronics Z5600a mic

My SE Electronics Z5600a mic

Just continuing on, decided to do a fresh series of recordings in my living room of a bunch of songs – five of my own and two cover songs – that I might record in July. I used my fancy wonderful SE Electronics Z5600a II microphone but I think I made a mess of the levels and that I was too close to the mic so when my voice is loud it’s a bit distorted. The thing I tried to do was to record the voice and the guitar at the same time, and that’s difficult with one mic. But mostly I just wanted to do these tracks to stamp down where the songs stand today – with just voice and guitar. They were all done in a single take – except Memories, since I left out a verse the first time I sang it – and all done this morning and this afternoon.

Theys all down here:
