I tracked some percussion with my friend Emily today for that folk song I mentioned. Emily is really remarkable. As a consequence of being a grade “A” classical violinist, she can keep time like nobody’s business. And so, I recorded almost none of the percussion myself and instead let Emily pound away at the kick drum and snare. She also brought these little Dutch bells she’s “borrowing” from another violinist who’s abroad. I’m not sure how much of them will make it into the track once mixing is done but they were fun to record. There’s a lot of janglin’ involved.
