Drum Tracking [PICS]

I love drums.

We just finished tracking drums for my new project and this part of the recording process REALLY helps me get a feel for how the songs are going to sound. In case you haven't noticed from my playing style, I am ALL about rhythm. So drum-tracking is a big deal for me.

Adding drums also gives me a boost of confidence. The recording process is not without challenges and I have been nervous about this batch of songs, since I haven't become as comfortable playing them as when I began recording the "Crash" EP. So, drums are a very good thing!!

Here is a collection of pictures from the studio AND a quick video of Mr. Scott "Skipper" Gentry laying down some drums on a new song.

I am having a BLAST traveling around the Northeast! Boston, New Haven, Portland, Providence... I'm doing my best to take it all in.

You may have seen some tweets, pics and check-ins from the various colleges I have performed at. Well, now I'm adding to my tour 'journal' a video from a show in New Jersey.

I hope you enjoy my rendition of "Free Fallin'" LIVE at Ramapo College!
