Re: Reference mixtape

That Nina Nastasia record - great drum sounds on there! She did a record with Jim White I really like, too.

Re: How to record the Flying Burrito Brothers

Damn, what songs on that album - so great. The hard-panning gets distracting to me, but that’s a quibble I can get past. Sneaky Pete’s steel playing is perfect on this record.

Re: Hearing Imbalance

One thing I’ve noticed after long drives is that my left ear gets desensitized to the wash of road noise up against the driver’s side window, and I’ll have some lopsided hearing for a bit after that. I wonder if some people also just naturally favor one ear over another, much like being left- or rig...

Re: Latest gear you've acquired.....

Dave Hill Europa preamp. I’m going to sell some stuff so I can get a second one. These things are so versatile. Did some acoustic guitar and bass DI yesterday with it - the option to slow down the slew rate and add harmonics allows for some nice mangling that doesn’t ever go over the top. And the 18...

Re: Reference mixtape

Cool, and thanks, y’all. Some good suggestions. Just now setting up the new pair of Neumann kh120’s, and hearing all kinds of new detail in Gillian Welch’s The Harrow & the Harvest. Fun stuff, but I’m frightened to pull up my own mixes now...

Reference mixtape

What’s on your reference mixtape for when you’re working in another studio and/or listening on different monitors?

I’ve got some new monitors coming tomorrow and want to spend some time getting acclimated to them. Curious what y’all like to put on for an occasion like this.

Re: Recommend me a wild delay pedal

So many fun delay pedals out there.
For the hazy washed out thing, I’ve been really into the Demedash pedal I traded for. It’s got loads of character. No tap tempo, but I don’t miss it.

Re: how often are you using non cardioid patterns?

Omni for my Oktava mc012, super close to the 14th fret of an acoustic for finger-picked stuff. I’ve been experimenting with lots of acoustic mic’ing lately, but this old standby just works in finding a nice balance.

Re: Andy Martin, Knopfler, Buckingham..who are some awesome fingerstyle players?

Richard Thompson has a beautiful approach to fingerstyle playing - really delicate and lyrical. And I like John Fahey for the opposite reasons - he seemed to get some grit and twang in his playing.

Re: What are your influences?

This is fun to read.

When I was a kid, I was so taken by Ben E. King's Stand By Me. It sounded like the perfect expression of emotion. I'm still chasing that.
