My Treadmill
My Treadmill

I use the term in the lightest way possible. I have began to be physically active recently as I’ve just gotten too fat over the last few months. I got the Life Fitness treadmill delivered just over a week ago and after waiting for 3 months to get that whole deal together, it was about time. I did get a fantastic deal on it I think, especially considering that it was delivered and installed for about 6 grand less than I could have purchased a new one sans shipping and installation. Including today, for the past 8 days the first thing I do upon waking is walk for 30 minutes on that bad boy. Yeah, I know, 30 isn’t that long but I’m intentionally trying to wade into this slowly so as to not get burned out. I sincerely plan to hit 365 days of consecutive cardio and proper diet.

On Saturday, I traveled to Snug Records Studios to lay down some of the guide tracks for the new album. Eddie is producing this one and the plan is to sort of do it live-ish, as far as the rhythm tracks. That being the case, it’s important to get down plain acoustic versions of each tune to a guide track. It feels a little bit redundant as I recently demoed all these on acoustic with Gabe prior to him dropping my project.

On the other hand, that was in a home studio whereas Eddie’s place is as real and professional as a studio can be. I love being in there. Not to mention his amazing assortment of guitars which I always use on my records made there. I think we got 8 or 9 guide tracks down. Not bad. My voice was a little tired at the end but I felt that we had a solid guy for the musicians to practice to.
