Album recording begins

The main guitars to be featured on the album.
Hello and welcome to my new blog, where I will be keeping you updated on all current and future projects. At the moment, my main concern is my debut solo album which, after some delays, I finally began recording this week.

I will be recording the songs in the order that they will appear on the finished album, and so far, I've managed to record the basic tracks for the first two songs. At this early stage, I am very pleased with the results!

Without giving too much away at this stage, this is definitely not a metal album. In fact, in many ways, it could not be much further from it. I have been playing metal and heavy rock since I first picked up the guitar, but I have long since enjoyed music in its various forms, and the time is right for me to explore other areas. I am very keen to do this! I cannot desert metal completely; I still listen to plenty of bands from that genre, and I will keep playing it in other projects as and when the inspiration strikes, but for various reasons, I have grown tired of the metal scene and a lot of its music. This is why it was essential for me to launch a solo career at this point; I guess this is me growing, and moving on.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Updates will follow on the album's titles, themes and inspirations, as well as progress reports on the recording and production process.

Peace to you all!
