|August 8 :
Bruce Kulick Studio blog update.
Day 13 started off with some extra guitars for the song called "Life". I realized we missed some things from the demo, so we jumped in with my Gibson SG from 1965 and added some more guitar lines in the B sections. Jeremy worked up an idea on my ES 330. This song has really come along and it is very special in guitar textures. We didn't get too crazy with pedals but did have fun checking out the new Duncan designed LAVA BOX.
We moved onto getting some more parts done for "If I Could Show You", and then "What Love's All About". We wanted to work on a song called "I Will Survive" but we realized Jeremy needed to work a bit on the drum track before we would overdub on that song. I might keep some of the demo guitars on that track as well. We decided the guitar solo on "Life" would come from the demo cause it was just so perfect for the song.
Day 14 was the acoustic day we were waiting for. Sadly our hard drive was acting up so we wisely took a break, double checked our back ups, and then even had a visit to the APPLE store to get another drive to back up too! So that took up 3 hours, but I relaxed and changed some strings to get ready to record with the acoustics. We jumped first into "Life" and I knew the Martin would be a good choice. It has that 70's sound that is perfect for this song. We played it down about 4 times.
Next up was "If I Could Show You" and we used the Elvis Gibson Dove for that tune. I love that guitar as well, and my brother has borrowed it many times to record with. I think it is on Thomas's new disc as well. For "What Love's All About" we switched to the Custom Dove and that guitar is just HUGE in tone. Also on Thomas's disc of course. Jeremy bought that acoustic on Ebay and it is an amazing guitar. We did some acoustic work for one more tune, "What Did I Say" and then we knew it was getting late.
