Just a quick update to say that the new acoustic project is progressing nicely. Have 19 tunes for that one so far, and it's destined to be another 2-disc set.
I'd say I'm well over the halfway point on this one. All the guitar, mandolin, bass, drums, and my vocals are in place. Still need to get the fiddle guy in for his tracks as well as the rest of the accordion stuff cut. Plus I'm featuring my favourite female vocalist Susanna Fuller on a few of these, as she's the finest I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
Also have one rather ambitious selection that will include a full concert orchestra as well as a pipe and drum band. Should be the stand-out cut on this if everything goes to plan. I won't be doing the vocals on this one however, as it requires the kind of voice of an operatic Italian Tenor. And I have a few candidates for that task.
As well as this acoustic project, I'm also working simultaneously on a misc electric project where the styles run the gamut. Everything from straight up R&R, Metal, Texas Swing, Country R&R, etc. Lots of very talented guest musicians featured on this one. Think I have 10 tunes for that so far.
But the focus is on getting the acoustic project completed, and hope to have that wrapped up in a couple months. I'll put up one of the selections up here in an mp3 as a sample before the main project is complete so you can see what I'm up to.
