7 down? Recording bass guitar for my new album at home – Captain’s Vlog 02

This month, I’m making an album with Rat from Ned’s Atomic Dustbin under the name OBEY ROBOTS and sharing the process in my Captain’s Vlog ⚓

I have 19 days to record all my parts in The Launchpad before we go into the studio to finish the album. The clock is ticking!

In this episode: I share never-before heard song snippets, plus my essential equipment for recording bass at home. See how I write, record and edit parts and try to overcome the mental roadblocks that are an inevitable part of the creative process.

This is the first time I’ve ever shown behind the scenes of how I write!
