Guitar technology for album 3

This is just a boring gear post for the fellow musicians out there. Rather than complex permutations of pedals I’ve usually opted for multi-effects units. The previous albums had a lot of sounds from the venerable Pod XT Live floorboard, but the next album will feature the newer Line 6 Helix unit (at the top in the image below). Routing everything through the Helix makes it trivial to get exactly the same tones live as in the studio, so… who knows, maybe live shows can happen. Watch this space.

Sherwood Forest

Sherwood Forest is an important location in English history and legend, serving as inspiration for the 3rd song on the previous album. Although greatly reduced in size since medieval times, the ancient woodland still exists today in several locations north of Nottingham.

Album 3 progress

The writing process for this album has been slower than anticipated, but the result should be worth the wait. The music is 90% complete, with themes and lyrics underway. The final stages of recording should be taking place during the autumn.
