YES!
Finally I managed to nail it!
It took me quite some listening to a-ha albums (which isn't bad at all) before I managed to get it working. The opening track from the forthcoming album is now on tape!
It is very satisfying working on the new album, and I'm progressing fast. This album will be much more simple in approach than the earlier - but that doesn't mean that it isn't effective....

Guitars
There's a new lady in my studio:

The look of it and the finish makes me want to play it. A guitar just after my head.
I haven't had a humbucker guitar since I sold my Ibanez a couple of years back, and it's great fun to hear the thickness of it's sound. My other electrics are all single coiled, and eventhough I like the sharpness of the sound, I am thrilled with this new beauty and I suspect it will become my main guitar from now on. Poor old Jazzmaster....

Rearrangements
I'm rearranging both the livingroom and my little studio. I felt it was way too dark, and I want to have some more light. This urge for light should show on my next album which has a lot lighter feel than the previous three. The demo now lasts 30 minutes and as I get the arrangements going, it should end up being between 45 and 55 minutes.
I have bought a lot of concert tickets. I'm going to see both Roger Waters and Portishead. Both whom I haven't seen before. I decided not to go the Jean-Michel Jarre concert in Copenhagen, but couldn't resist and bought a ticket anyway. That will be the 6th Jarre concert I'm going to....
