I have been spending more time recently developing new commercial music tracks. My concentration has been writing and recording folk acoustic guitar songs and various children's music tracks. This is where I have the most experience and I really enjoy the process. I usually start with a rhythm pattern and add acoustic guitar to build and flush out the arrangement. I add in bass guitar, an electric piano pad and then work out the lead melody. I have a wonderful Santa Cruz 1934 OM Grand that I usually use for my guitar work. I record it using a stereo pair of Neumann KM84's. This is done on a Mac with Logic Pro X.
