So, for those of you who know me kinda well, you know I love to record my shows. I have always said I am going to need something to watch, listen to and do in my old age. Well back when I was younger and super ambitious I used to not only bring the drums and P.A. system but more than occasionally I would bring out my portable digital recorder. A Korg 1600DM. It had 8 XLR inputs and several stereo input channels. I took every opportunity to mic up my drums and my stage and record the band and then take it home and mix it. Basically because I am a nerd and I wanted to learn how to do it. So I did it. This is back in the early 2000s, btw. I can honestly say my learning process at times can be process of elimination. If at first you do not succeed try and try again. One of my mottos. I got pretty good at it for a hobby. I recorded several bands at The Drum Studio over the years too. making demos. Its a lot easier to do these things nowadays with a DAW on a computer but I am old school. I started using 4 track recorders in High School (the 80’s). My Dad finally bought a Fostex 280 4 track (which i still have) and would let me use it to record, I recorded my first songs with all the instruments (drums, bass, guitar, vox) on it starting at around 17 years old. I still have the recordings.. All these Years later I have a full length album currently being remixed and mastered. Its Called Sun Dogs. Where I perform all the instruments and wrote the songs. Its coming around to a full circle and will release Spring 2019. These things I do, I do them for me. And they aren’t new to me or you. But I keep getting a little better each time. and thats enough to inspire myself. That is what motivates me. That is what keeps me going.
Anyways back to my Sound Cloud Im uploading all the different recordings of me playing DRUMS over the years since moving to Florida. about 17 years now.
